  1. this is Si lovely, wish I could be there.

    Alas, I live downunder, and we don’t have such scenery.

    Ours is different, not better or worse.

    But for the different skies, the caviar, yes, I’d like that.

  2. Looks like fun, at least for a one-shot deal. Eat caviar to your heart’s desire, and just enjoy the quiet of the north woods.
