local life

I think I could get used to this...

T'was another nice morning complete with poached eggs, trampoline jumping, fetch playing with the dogs and Bakin. We hopped on the bikes and took off in search of a nearby waterfall. We found the spot and naturally went for a chilly swim. Wish we had more time here! There's so much to explore.

Unfortunately we had to get back in order to visit a wine and smoked meat and jam producing neighbor and see her operations. Certainly wasn't a bad alternative. 

We met Melia who was most delightful. Being that time of day, we went along with her to feed the pig and lock the sheep up for the night. 

She had a couple lambs who were not even a week old. Too cute!

quite scared of Bakin

Got a tour of some of her fruits and veggies.

not sure what else he expected from a lemon

And finally for a taste of her labor. Some wine from this year, selection of jams, bread still warm from the oven, and an assortment of smoked meats and sausages. 

Then we were all back to Ben's for pizza night!

and a concoction of garden finds as a salad
