The Jensen-Olsen Arboretum

Happy Father's Day to all you father's out there! After we did our rounds today (on our bicycles) we decided to go for a ride out toward the "end of the road". It was such a pretty day and we are suppose to get rain later in the week. So we went to the Jensen-Olsen Arboretum which is about 14 miles out of town. It was a beautiful setting - right on the bay and they had some beautiful flowers.

This was a beautiful rose that was right by the entrance.

These are poppies - (I was right about the ones in front of the person's house on Douglas Island). These are really beautiful flowers - a beautiful shade of orange.

These are iris and lupin. You could not beat the setting. While we were sitting there by the bay looking out at the water we saw a seal swimming and catching some fish. We didn't see any whales today, but you never know when you might. Dan said that this was a place that we could just go out and sit and relax for awhile. (plus there wasn't any admission price!)
When we got back home we cooked dinner - grilled pork chops, Crystal's squash and zucchini casserole and a baked potato - cleaned up the kitchen and then did our evening rounds. When we were doing our evening rounds we saw the beaver that lives in the lake here in the campground. I have known that it was there, but today is the first time that I have seen it. The campground has cleared out quite a bit from the weekend. Tomorrow we will clean up the bathrooms and then start working on the fire pits.
Well, that's about all that happened today. I hope that you all had a great weekend and that you were able to wish your dad a Happy Father's Day. Take care and -------------------
I'll talk to you tomorrow!!!
