All different animals being shown & judged ( this is the Dairy Show)
And a parade on Sunday ( photo from last year!)

To My New England Friends..

Doesn't this remind you of the Old Man in the Mountain?  Of course, it's a coral cliff in Isla Mujeres!

 Made red raspberry jam ( and 2 jars of dilly beans) this morning and I got to use thees great new tools I got as a present.  The ladle hooks onto the pan & one ladle full fills a canning jar! 
The canning funnel fits over the jar & has measurements so you get the head space right.

Put them to good use!

Saturday Single

I saw this yesterday at a store in Great Barrington, MA--a combination of things I would have never expected to see in a drink!  Info from the website--it is made in England--any of my British friends had this?

Spotted these swans when we were at the LRWC last weekend & the timing was great!  As they glided into the water the reflections were amazing, so I snapped a few photos!

Thirst Quenchers

I would have loved one of these giant drinks on the day we went to Punta Sur in June!  Alas, all were fake so we had to settle for normal sized!
