Cynthia, Island Park and Yellowstone

This has been a summer full of changes. Most of the summer our internet speed has been so slow we could not upload pictures.  I'm going to use this as an intro to a number of posts.

June 21-June 28

Part II:  Cynthia, Island Park and Yellowstone

June 21 and 22
After my friends went back to PA, we made our way to our friends' house in Livingston.  Mike got a promotion to General Manager of Crater Lake so they are in the process of selling their house and moving to Oregon.  We helped with the landscaping of the front lawn and I provided various forms of entertainment for Alex and Megan.  This included making sugar and snickerdoodle cookies using a wine bottle as a rolling pin and various household items as cutters for the cookies.  We had a great time leaving Cynthia free to work outside on the various weeds.

Of course, the girls and I discussed Minecraft and I showed them mine.

I'm not happy over the change in Mike's status because it means they won't be in Yellowstone for us to visit.
While I had the computer out, Cynthia suggested I check for the Shakespeare in the Park schedule. was As You Like It at Bozeman.  That was a no-brainer and off we went to see it.  Probably our last one together...

June 23 and 24
This was another change.  We sold our land in Island Park. This proceeded via email and phone for the weeks right before we arrived.  We needed to get back to Baker's Hole Campground at West Yellowstone so that we could drive to the closing on the 24th.. My dream wasn't going to happen and it was time to let it go.  Bye to Island Park.
June 25-28
  We did all kinds of Yellowstone stuff during these days.  We biked to Lone Star and to Riverside.  We saw a beautiful Great Fountain.

We also went off to Virginia and Nevada City where other changes had made many of the artifacts no longer available for viewing.  The schoolhouse was still open.

This summer of change hasn't been easy for Lew and I but for me Yellowstone and the geysers will always get a top billing regardless of the changes that geysers do!
