On the road again and it feels good. 

While Johnny is backpacking in the North Cascades, I'm visiting family and friends. Yes, we're all at social distances and masked up. Except when sitting down to a meal. 

I relished every moment and we managed to stay at least six feet apart by eating outdoors, thanks to beautiful summer weather in the 509. Here's a quick rundown of some meal highlights:

Fantastic bone-in pork chop, sweet potatoes, slaw and homemade apricot chutney enjoyed with my brother at the KOA Campground in Leavenworth.

Barbecued chicken, corn on the cob and watermelon on the ranch with my niece Karly and her darling daughter, my great niece, Lucy. 

Caprese salad with homegrown tomatoes from my friend Robin's garden in Walla Walla, delivered by our mutual friend, Linda to the campground in Leavenworth.
