To cap off Quilt Sue's visit to California was our trip to Yosemite last Friday. You can see from the photos that it was a picture perfect day.
First stop was Inspiration Point. The breeze gave Gail, Sue and me a new hair design.
Second stop was our favorite picnic spot at the base of El Capitan along the Merced River.
The Fall colors and the blue sky combined for a beautiful day.
This was the warning on our picnic table. We covered it up with a quilt so Sue wouldn't be afraid and could eat her lunch without worrying about bears.
Our next stop was a walk across the valley floor to Yosemite Falls. Luckily it rained the weekend before so there was a little bit of water in the falls.
As the light faded to late afternoon, we took this picture of Sue with Half Dome in the background.
There is beauty and grandeur in every direction.
One final picture of Sue and me with El Capitan in the background.
Then a quiet drive back to the cabin while our thoughts reflected on our amazing trip to Yosemite and the time we spent together.
Yesterday was bittersweet. It was time for Sue to head back across the pond to her home and family. Our entire family loves Sue.
It's lonely here at the kitchen table without you and your sense of humor. Mazey is curled up at my feet wondering where you are and I keep hearing an occasional whine. Now that your visit has come to an end, she has one less person to scratch her behind her ears. I miss you my friend.
The last toodle pip until your next visit.
