The asters are in full bloom. Fortunately, bees do not bother me and I do not brother them. The bees continue to swarm the asters, and they rise in a cloud when I walk by.
We met Mike and Betty at the Chinese restaurant in Ione, aptly called the Chinese Restaurant in Ione. I drove home by the light of a full moon that was low in the sky. Judy found the Sea of Tranquility, known otherwise as the man in the moon. I pointed out the lane of trees on both sides of Buena Vista Road south of the four corners, always the sign for me that I am a few miles from home.
