Ventura, California

I have been in Ventura for a bit more than a week now. Gaia is enjoying her visit with Lucy and Coco (this one is Coco). The weather has been delicious. We had a gorgeous full moon to gaze at: I was happy to see that Gaylene is doing has well as possible and even better at times. Then there are really hard times when it is difficult to be so powerless in front of pain. Paul came to pick me up at the airport with Windy his girlfriend. Emily stayed for a week (check her blog for the culinary part of her visit). We had time to do few fun things. Like the movies (The Other Boylen Girl http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&id=1809772229&cf=pstills&intl=us , and Atonement, again.... still very good a second time around). We had lunch at a southern restaurant that specializes in Gumbo and we ate at the terrace...

Another lunch in a wine bar . We went to the Farmer's Market:Young musicians serenading the passer by, orchids, artichokes (huge and purple...) the bookstores and boutiques on main street. Oh and a visit to the thrift shop where Emily found some bargain dishes and I got a very cute purse. It seems that the treatment is working well for Gaylene. Then Radiation is hurting other things as it is trying to shrink and isolate the Cancer. I am happy though to be spending time with her. Those were taken in Gaylene's yard. So beautiful and peaceful. That is when the dogs are behaving!!!!!! Also a mockingbird came by and boy oh boy did he have a fun way to entertain me. Love that bird.

Hello Roxane, c'est un grand bonjour de la part de Martin, Dominique, Carol et JP, et une grande bouffée de chaleur de la vallée de la cagne.
Grosses bises à bientôt
