Andrea from Survivor was on our boat, and we couldn't place her until later. Also saw her at LA Tapa. Found the Campground. Very pretty even in the rain. Got our campsite: 37. Walked all the way down... Not amused. Honey went and got us a new spot. 33. Went down to the beach. HUGE waves. Very abnormal. Went shopping in town and found souvenirs. Hung out on beach and knit, while honey took in the scenery. Back to town for Dinner at LA Tapa. Very expensive, and I felt like I was on Top Chef. Confit, blah blah... But it was SO Darn good!!!

He has a CSAA, and shares sell out quickly when they are available. He rescues animals that being sold to slaughter and makes them part of his herd! It is a smallish herd right now, but is always growing! 
    • You also need to take that code and go to his blog (^above) and leave a comment in the blog to win the prize... what is the prize!?!?! You need to go read his blog... but it is pretty and fibery and delicious! GO LOOK!!  RIGHT NOW!
