August started with our annual get together celebrating Lughnasadh.
A few days later a friend of ours dropped by with some surprises for Bug he had found down at the river. She found the crayfish fascinating and we learned all about exoskeletons,vertebrates and invertebrates. The Clam was a good reminder and a close up of something we had learned about a month before when we were at Sunwheel. The river there had clams and Bug got to see them on the bottom and the trails they left but none close up till now.

Another great thing about summer is Farmers market. We go whenever we can and on this trip I picked up an amazing local smoked Gouda. It was tasty, I served it with fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden mmmmm food bliss.
