Honey Days

Collecting a year’s supply of local, raw honey happens in late summer/early fall.

Down this road lies the honey shed:

I leave my 12 bottles by the mailbox, and David Smith of Sparky’s honey picks them up when he comes home.

About a week later, he calls, and I come home with these…

…beautiful, local honey!!

The only white sugar I’ve purchased for many years now is for the hummingbird feeders.  And, perhaps, for grandchildren who want to bake something yummy for dessert.

Turkey Tracks: High Tide at Duck Trap River Estuary

High Tide at Duck Trap River

These views are from the back side of the bar—at full high tide.  It’s a bit warmer as it is also sheltered from the prevailing bay breeze.  But, it’s…cold water.  They are hearty souls for sure!

Look at that wonderful old bridge in the background.

AC waded but said no to swimming.  The drop off was a bit scary for him.  But he LOVES to swim.
