I'll post pictures soon but for now we just got home from Batman so I'm recovering from the scary faces and guns. (I'm a bit of a wimp!) Have a great 3 day weekend!

Geoff and I spent last week up at YMCA Family Camp near Kings Canyon National Park. This was my 3rd year at camp, and Geoff's 25th year! Geoff's family goes every year and all of the campers are like family to him as well. It was fun to be up there and celebrate our engagement with everyone, and to enjoy the peacefulness and love of family camp.
Geoff snapped a picture of me and Barbara (his mom) looking at a wedding magazine! The planning has begun!

We had a very early (DeeDee was thrilled) start to the morning to hike the 18km Samarian Gorge through the White Mountains.
The views were incredible and it was so refreshing to be away in the woods. Although the path was quite stony, the terrain and scenery were awe-inspiring and it was a beautiful day.
The day ended with a giant gyros (yummmmm) and a swim (ahhhh)!
Our last day in Greece was spent in the city of Iraklion where we visited the palace of Knossos. Geoff was in history heaven, and DeeDee survived!

Who could resist feeding a starving kitty some of your bread crusts?
The view of the caldera from the out of the way town of Oia (ee - ah)
Some unique cycladic architecture
The happy couple on a scooter ride overlooking Amorgos
Could there be any doubt Geoff's ready to take the plunge?
