The last day of vacation was gorgeous!
Sunny, warm and did I mention, warm? ;-)
Vegas, all chilled out by the sea...
My stepdaughter, soaking up the rays...
No, it's not a dead child on the rocks! LOL!
The beanies all nice and cool and sandy
after a last swim in the
We had to cut our vacation short by a day
to avoid driving home under hurricane Irene's wrath.
Home sweet home!
We bunkered down yesterday and weathered out the storm,
so to speak.
Irene, what a bitch your far-flung slap was!
Everyone's fine, we never lost power
and kept most of our trees.
The creeks bordering our property have morphed into giant lakes
but stopped just short of flooding the farm buildings, thankfully:
Our neighbour across the creek got very lucky...
The waters stopped 6 feet from his basement windows!
So today is dedicated to cleaning up the yard from
strewn branches and leaves,
cleaning out the chicken coops from soaked bedding
and trying to enjoy the warm sun.
So good to be home.
I hope you're all good?
