Just for the Halibut

I love how the community here has a sense of humor.  There are lots of “butt” jokes around.  This morning started out cool and wet, but we went for a drive in the country just for the halibut!

We saw this private residence when we were out.  Love it!  Seems to me to be an appropriate place for an igloo style home.



After enjoying the very scenic drive we went back to “the Spit”.  I like saying that, I feel like a local.  “Let’s go to the Spit.”  “Lunch at the Spit.”  “Walk on the Spit.”  Which is what we did, we went for a walk on the Spit.

The Buttwhackers!  They “Pack ’em, rack ’em, whack ’em, and sack ’em”  We watched for a while.  I never thought about it, but fish have cheeks.  And halibut cheeks are a delicacy.  I noticed a pan on the table here that was labeled “buttcheeks”, no joke!  I had to google it.



As we were walking we noticed this unique RV parked between some businesses.  It’s obviously somebody’s home.  I loved it, had to take the picture.

It began to rain, so we went home and sat it out while it rained the rest of the day.

      The temps here have been around 60, cloudy and rainy. Looks like it will continue to be that way for the next several days. Bernie is thinking about it but I am not.
