but I didn't PLANT tomatoes, and I didn't PLANT potatoes...........

I haven't paid much attention to my little garden since the end of summer after it had provided me with such a bounty of all that I planted.  I went out today to clear it and look what gifts I found.

I LOVE volunteers!  By the way, that is TEN pounds of potatoes.

Cruising and Wine Tasting on Joe Euro's Boat

The endless beautiful weather here in Port Townsend brought an unexpected treat:  a cruise and wine tasting on wine merchant Joe Euro's motor vessel.  We were guests of Alex and Elena who had  bid on the event at an auction.  There wasn't a breath of wind all day and that made it motoring heaven.

"Round-Up": a visit to Jane and Richard's Ranch

Jane and Richard are neighbors on Grand Lake and both have deep roots in the area.  It was fun to go to their ranch outside of town one morning to watch them round up a couple of their horses for a visit to the vet.

 Pard is a very enthusiastic partner to Richard and was excited about helping with the round-up
First the horses had to be located:  there they are at the end of the meadow 

 The Percherons had to stay home and seemed concerned

Grand Lake

I'm visiting Penny and Richard's wonderful cabin in the Colorado Rockies;  the aspens have begun to turn and the air is crystalline.  This was my first day.
