Bookend Cousins


What a delightful surprise! A second visit with our niece Emily in less than a week! She’s interning in the Porthouse Theater costume shop this summer which gives her opportunity to visit with her Cousin Dave and his daughters on occasion. These two are the oldest and the youngest of the grandchildren of Karen’s parents. They grew up in the same neighborhood but by the time Emily was old enough to be aware, Dave was already living in Ohio. It’s a great side benefit of this summer job that she is able to spend time with some of her far flung family!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
