  • St. Pete Farmers Market

    Today was the farmers market downtown and we went to meet up with Jerry & Carolyn M.  We decided to meet up with each other at the Sundial and arrived just as the yoga group was breaking up.  I have never seen so many young people in town before – Wow!   Well, we saw the Sundial, which was not reflecting the correct time, and decided to walk the marina fence line to look at boats.  A lot of the boats on the line were the same ones we saw 3 years ago.  A quick tour of the market showed us prices that were higher than the stores by quite a bit. Then it was on to lunch at the restaurant near the marina and home for a nap.  I am now refreshed and ready to write this blog.

    It is raining lightly as I watch the squirrel searching around for a stray nut or two and all the while keeping and eye on the Macadamia Nut tree that is just past full bloom.  At the absolute peak of becoming ripe the nuts are stripped from the tree in the full view of the owners, leaving not one nut for the homeowner.  We have seen this for many years and there is nothing to be done about it.  The dozen or so Oranges are getting ripe too but it will be another month or so before the small, tart fruits are ready to eat.

    This morning I ordered a replacement billfold from Amazon and it should be here on Monday.  My old one is becoming very ragged and worn and a new one is long over due.  TTYL Moore
