Open Hearts Abound!

Part of our shows recently have included a reminder to folks that we are all rooted in a human community that thrives when we are generous to each other. We have experienced it firsthand while touring around the country with our two kiddos. From homestays to guest cottages, home cooked meals to pre-gig sandwiches, surf boards to kid's costumes, we've been offered it all! Now that we've become used to seeing it, we're challenging you to be on the lookout for your opportunity to receive! Here are a few funny pics as reminders, one in Wash DC and one the Northern California coast, that it's everywhere!

Carmel to Mendocino.

We left one of the most stunning views of the Pacific Ocean (the picture here is from our bedroom) yesterday and drove part of Highway 1 in California. Along the way we met a gentleman who'd been a logger, was now helping to run a family general store and showed us an old banjo in the "dance hall" above the shop. Then we watched sea lions with a couple from Toronto. We finally arrived to our host family for the weekend, in the San Francisco Bay area, who had hot chicken pot pie for us. Two days before Pete "surfed" (more like swam with a surf board) at Carmel Beach, pictured here behind Anne.
Our motto for life is slowly becoming, " How did we get here?"
