Making the most out of a perfect end of summer day, running errands.
I went to Joe's garden to collect some beautiful veg right out of the dirt,
got some sweet and sour plums to nibble on the way,
Disappointed to not have a garden this year, I wanted to make raised gardens in the front, it would have been so easy, Our neighbor was having hers built as well as a deer fence, the builders would have come over and done ours for less than usual because , they were here and had the wood.
Mr. Man, decided instead to get four large plastic pots from Costco and plant a few things on the deck.
The pots are still on the deck full of dead leaves and rain water. Guess we missed that season, and guess that next year , if the opportunity arises, I will have a raised garden.
Anyway, so grateful for Joe's- Organic, he does all the work, so probably a good thing all around.
So flavorful!! Affordable, and NO plastic bags.
On the right track, local, organic, no plastic.
From there I took my plums and went for a little walk through the park.
This is the same park , where about fifteen years ago or so, the pipeline leaked , big hole in the underground oil pipe, And blew up three boys playing there. Saddest thing ever, Two of the boys made it home burned beyond saving, the other was fishing and was overcome , fell into the creek and drowned-
Burned the forests and the creek all the way to the bay.
The stone bridge is above the falls, there are more falls above this and are usually quite tame. Kids play on them, there are swimming holes and places where kids dive from the rocks sometimes killing themselves. That happens, a warning sign never stops them.
I am so glad we do not have thrill seekers in this house!
The worst Erik and his friends ever did was go to the lake and park illegally to the tune of a three hundred dollar violation!
We have been so lucky.
I have a live stream web cam thing from Burning man, I keep expecting to see him.
This is the other bridge leading out of the park.
The fence along the roadway.
I am not sure who the artist is , but think it is Reis Neimi.
Major project paid for by the city- us actually,
taxes you know.
No complaints there should be art everywhere.
We should live in ART.
We should live in ART.
From there I went next door to the cemetery. always a good walk. but this cemetery is so crowded with graves, it is overload and vast, getting larger every minute.
I intended to go to the baby graves and look at the cute little headstones, but decided instead to go back to the car and eat all of the plums.
Never made it to the babies this time..
This angel is large, she is the boss of the cemetery, no body gets by her without being judged.
She has her photo taken frequently.
She is rather spooky, especially at night when I would take the kids, then in middle school, to look for ghosts. We never did find any...one evening when we were in the baby cemetery we heard the babies crying----pretty sure, though it could have been the coyotes that live nearby.
I hate to think of dead babies crying so I am going with coyotes.
