On the way to work the other morning. The part of the day where you can be comfortable in shorts is getting really limited now.
A cottonwood tree, or something like one, is close enough to a white Christmas for us this year.
We don’t have snow in Auckland, but a big thunderstorm the other day did put hail on the bishop’s house.
This tree, on the other hand, really is as yellow as this.
These flowers are really common landscaping plants. You can’t quite tell from the picture how large this tree is. It has 4-5 main trunks, growing out quite horizontally, and each one is the size of a normal “big tree.”
Last December, we enjoyed a super-relaxing vacation in St. Martin. Today, I googled around for photos of the devastation from Irma last week. Yikes.
These two photos are from in front of the cemetery that we overlooked from our AirBnB apartment… the very same apartment we spent some time dreaming about investing in. The pictures in my post RIP are taken from inside the cemetery, and the masts in the background of my pics could easily enough be from the actual boats shown here. Again, yikes.
Today, it’s Florida’s turn, and we are hoping that the many people we know and know of down there are safe and sound.
