Today Clark, Erin, my brother Bob, and I went to the Bay Area to a party celebrating my sister Joan’s 80th birthday.
Erin with the birthday girl, my sister, Joan, on the deck at her daughter Janet’s house in Alamo. The deck is nestled amongst pine trees. Hence, all of the shadows. Clark is in the background.
