What an exquisite retreat! On a cliff above the ocean with that pounding surf and gardens galore with flowers to make me blue-green with envy!
And my lovely hosts, Pauline and Bruce, suggested I join them at the local tavern for dinner and Friday night social….so very glad I did. Talked to lots of locals and in particular, Janette…..what a hoot that big buxom, blonde divorcee is! We hit it off and had a ball talking trash :-). And of course a few of the local males took a small interest in the newbie. There was that one particular charming fella with whom I enjoyed some conversation…it was just those missing teeth that captured most of my attention! Bless his kind heart!
A few pix of the Steeples' B&B grounds and the vistas…
Wild looking moth in my studio last night (two nights ago…Internet so bad on The Boot grounds I couldn't send this post as planned). Has about 3″ wing spread! Perfect camo for natural wood and nice complement to the chartreuse paint.
OMG! Look at that expression… He must be a poet with angst!
I think it's a German (Russian?) mastiff. BIG sweet dog who comes to the saloon to visit with the patrons.
This is the evening sky as I left the saloon…alone!
