Friends and Family come to visit

Cleaning our room for a visit from family! Must vacuum up each feather individually.

Lunch at the Pizza Bar in Seaside. Halfway into our meal, the heavens opened and rain started beating in from the south, ricocheting off the tables nearest the dune and spraying us lightly. We opted to stay outside, rather than move indoors.

dessert of cupcakes from an airstream trailer restaurant. We agreed that they were dry, with too much frosting. We ate them anyway.

Going into Town

On Wednesday I made a few phone calls, found a (relatively) local source for raw milk, and outfitted the cooler for a 45 mile round trip drive. The Boogedy and I drove into Panama City (braving a frog-strangler of a rainstorm) to the produce stand for 3 gallons of fresh milk, then to the other side of town to hit a few Asian markets I found online. We came back with fresh black-eyed peas, sweet basil, frozen lemongrass, juicy young coconuts, cellophane wrapped philipino cakes (polvorones), pink skinned lychees, black sticky rice, and a bunch of other Thai and Vietnamese products that looked good. It was so good to finally have the products I took for granted in SLC!

Some random photos. Here’s a gecko outside our kitchen window.

We had a HUGE thunderstorm. We have a great front porch for storms. The back porch is screened, but our roommates have claimed that as a smoking porch, so I avoid it. The Boogedy enjoyed the downpour:

And kept putting his body parts into the drip line:

I got myself some new glasses, as allergies are making contact lenses miserable:

Here are the patrol boats looking for oil off the coast of Walton County:
