The whole weekend, the long and lovely weekend, of Vicki's visit felt like a retreat, not just the two days we spent at Alta. We both feel as if we could have, should have, taken more pictures, but the intent was to knit, to retreat, and that's exactly what we did.
Here you see Suzy, Cheryl and Vicki (the empty chair is mine) intently knitting and not much changed throughout the day, except the angle of the sun. Here it is the last weekend of September and we're sitting on the deck as if it were the height of summer. We had 2 days of fantastic weather, great food, lots of chatter and tons of knitting!
At the very last minute of retreat, just as we were saying our good-byes, I thought to snap a picture of Lisa, the very best retreat organizer (and festival organizer) ever!
Vicki and I continued to retreat, even after the Alta Retreat was over, as we were able to spend another excellent day together. We started out at Silver Fork, where I remembered to snap a couple of pictures of Vicki. (During the week, when it's not so busy, SF is able to make a GF meal.)
From there we went to Silver Lake and walked around the boardwalk. We saw the moose, which was a treat, and then we took pictures of our recent FOs. It's very likely we will both be more forthcoming with FO information as soon as we can get our wits about us. They're both worth waiting for...promise!
We drove over the mountains and into a forest of red were the oaks were showing off what they could do, as the aspens were a little behind in their changing of the colors. I took pictures of Vicki capturing red or stood beside her to capture the show.
Blue skies shown on us throughout Vicki's stay. September was amazing.
My favorite picture of Vicki's stay is this one, taken by Suzy, her only picture of the weekend.
