taking it all in
we realized yesterday morning that we couldn't spend the night at the cabin because we would miss the american idol finale! (the o'hagan siblings (and partners) have been in fierce competition all winter and spring guessing who would get voted off each week.) so we went down to the cabin early in the day and jan and abigail and i went for a hike to the blomidon brook swimming holes (through terrain that seems from another planet). while keith drove on to the cabin and got a fire going to warm it up and have tea waiting for us when we arrived. and we spent the rest of the day and evening watching the wild wind and rain on the water. echoed by the clouds and jan beachcombed (choosing rocks to bring home to ontario with her.) and we were home and showered and ready for idol at 9:30 (newfoundland time).
