We were invited back to Idyllwild last weekend. Only this time, it was a private house. Our daughter's former middle school band teacher (and her sub while she was out on pregnancy leave...) has a home up near Idyllwild and she offered us the use of it over the weekend. So, off we went Friday afternoon. We had crisp, cool mornings, and cool afternoons. I was bundled up in a jacket by Sunday afternoon! :-) Our daughter, husband, and baby Ellie came with us and I got to babysit and feed the baby at 4:00 a.m.! I also got to watch a family of 6 coyotes come out into the meadow behind the house every morning and afternoon, although I didn't realize there were 6 of them until I spotted them all out there Sunday afternoon. The pups ran around and chased each other and played tag and roll around in the grass. We spotted one Friday evening, out alone, and he called to the others and a chorus of coyote yips came out from behind the trees on the other side of the meadow. I'm glad we had an opportunity to enjoy the meadow and its creatures!
