Party Prep

I have tried fresh, frozen and dried Black Eyed Peas. I like the dried best. Some years the stores run low on B.E.Ps so I try to get some a few days in advance. I make the slow soak version, starting them the night before.

Pre Winter Projects

With a slow start to winter in my garden I have a chance to rebuild the cedar retaining walls that are starting to fail. I have gone with a skim coated concrete block. While at it I opened up better steps to get up out of the pool area.

Coming Home

After two dreary gray days in Rhode Island the sun came out as we crossed the Connecticut line. The ferry ride over the LI Sound was very nice.

Pit Stop

As the highway becomes a commercial road this gas station can be a welcome site.

This Ford Torino station wagon has options. The center latch had the tail gate drop like a gang plank, the side latch had it swing open like a door.

Feeding Frenzey

Hard to see at this distance, bait fish are driven to the surface by schools of blue fish. Gulls then dive in and gobble them up. You can just see the splashes.
