A: A visit from good friends!
Arabella welcomed Reiner, Esther and Lola with her usual enthusiasm for head petting, tummy scratching and human pillows . . .
Lady Arabella Page even managed to photo bomb Lola and the Easter Cookies. Look closely . . .
Even typically photo-shy Lloyd Page managed to get into the spirit of things . . .
Lots of tasty meals both at home and at local eateries, below a few glimpses sneaked around the Cafe Drake HRV dining table:
|Dhokla, a Gujarati steamed, savory chickpea flour cake. It's what's for dinner!|
|Fish marinating in a garlic and turmeric dry rub, later simmered with coconut milk and red chilies.|
Reiner & Lola on a (very) short-distance phone call . . .
Mornings were spent at the Catskills Animal Sanctuary and the river and forest paths behind Cafe Drake HRV (as below) . . .
And a few pics from the lens of Esther Lok . . .
|Reiner & Lola meet a 44-yr old donkey!|
|A dinner of basmati rice, black-eye pea curry, fish with coconut sauce, arugula salad and dhokla.|
|Lola is ready for ricotta torte.|
|Nice to have a hand setting the table.|
|Don't be disturbed by a quick first glance. Moments later we were all scratching the stomach of this napping 900-lb. pig at the Catskill Animal Sanctuary.|
