It Was A Good Week

It was a really good first week! A little rainy, but good. It tried to clear off for a couple of days, but it wasn't completely successful. Check out these #1 was taken outside the post office looking toward the ocean.

Photo #2 was taken immediately after photo #1 in the exact same spot looking in the opposite direction......toward our house.

So you can see that although it didn't rain for a couple of days this week it never did get "hot".

One day Pam brought me a green smoothie from Botanika that was made from greens purchased here at the U-Pick was as delicious as it was beautiful!....and wasn't that nice of her?

There were lots of hungry people who came to pick vegetables....when it wasn't raining!

And Max came to play in the dirt..... the ducks....

....and sweep the garden with a broom.....

Hey, somebody's got to do it!
