Moonlight Paddle


Sky water.

It needs no fence.


A mirror which no stone can crack,

whose quicksilver will never wear off,


whose gilding nature continually repairs,

which retains no breath that is breathed on it,


but sends its own to float as clouds high above its surface,


and be reflected in its bosom still.

~Henry David Thoreau~
Walden


Paddling under the light of the full moon.
I still can't believe it wasn't a dream.

You can never have too many..

After the late blight last year and not getting a single tomato (okay ONE tiny cherry tomato), I am ever so grateful for the bounty of tomatoes this year. Actually, it's an avalanche and we are loving it! The canner is going full tilt..

..full steam ahead!

Simply Morning

No matter how I try..
and wish with all my might ..
I am just not a morning person.

Thanks to our friends..
Without them, I would have missed this magnificent sunrise.

Wishing you all a most wonderful week!

Peachy

I wait for them every year.

Peaches.


Eight quarts of summer sun in the freezer to brighten those cold winter days.
Just a little shout to say THANKS to my favorite little farmers market.

Thank you for the peaches!

Simply Summer - Yak Attack

One Red.
One Mango.

On the water all weekend.
Picnics.
Paddling with good friends.

Quiet coves.

Herons and Osprey.
One large fish.

If I could sleep in it,
I would.
