10 August

6 am

I ran into a couple who had ridden their bikes from the other side of the causeway to watch the sunrise

They were talking and laughing so loudly  I could hear them half way down the beach

I suppose they couldn't help it

it makes one wonder why a person would go to all the trouble of riding a bike at dawn to watch the


and then miss the entire thing with incessant chatter

7 am

things are really getting exciting now...

8 am

 a bit of reading and a cup of tea with honey

I found another heart shaped rock while I walked the beach earlier

 used it as a book mark when I re-filled my cup

9 am

watering the marigolds

inchworm, inchworm
counting the marigolds
seems to me you'd stop and see
how beautiful they are

I stumbled across a yard sale at a house next door to one my mum used to live in.

The woman was very nice and was still friendly with my mum.

I was able to get all of this mini boden (which is normally very dear) for a song
1 extra large glass of lemonade
6 shirts
7 pairs of pants
1 pair of shorts
a sweatshirt


Peter-pan and Wonder-boy are all set for fall/winter clothes
