Back home again after a couple of weeks away. One notices the stuff that has changed. The nights are cooler now and the ocean is getting really cold. The blackberries are in full swing with a good crop this year. There is something decadent about blackberry pie. When you cook blackberries, they dissolve into some kind of perfume. It's gorgeous.

I know have enough Oregon grapes and salal to make a lot of jelly, so I'll probably do that tomorrow.

Bowfest is today, our annual Island gathering and this year's theme is medieval.
