|Can some say Pumpkin Pie?|
Driving south down Hwy 99 to avoid the freeway and save a gallon of gas, we passed Blue Haeven Farm Stand.....Pie...screech..stop, pull over.
I knew about this place from a berry pie we got a few weeks ago on my northern journey back from the village so Sraddha went shopping.
"Do you have any pumpkin pie?", she asked.
Clerk behind the counter, "Gee we just took some out of the oven about 10 minutes ago. They are still to warm to eat"...hmmm. This is what one would call a "no-brainer."
Darn, we had to wait about 45 minutes to find a little state park in which to pull over and have lunch. Guess what was for desert! And it was as good as it looks. Sraddha even said it was as good as she could make which is saying a lot.
|The Marina and harbor|
After landing and settling in we decided to walk before the rains returned so I got out my big camera and even bigger new zoom lens and we walked along the harbor edge around to the river's edge we spotted this egret fishing in evening light. I shot this handleld at 440 mm.
