WHEN BL'S AWAY ...

... she goes fishing with daughter and granddaughter (taking picture on cell phone and sending it to me.) So I am sure to see what I am missing. At least I don't have to help clean them. I expect to get another photo of the dinner later ....

But a fella has got to eat too, this should work ... stay tuned ...


"Do you think I like pie???" - Racer

45 minutes later ... now we need an ice cream run - back in a jiffy! There we go - French Vanilla! - YUM!

THE PRINCESS ON DUTY ....

"Don't worry, BL. I'll keep an eye on him." - The Princess

Me and Kitty Boy can handle salad duty just fine, thank you very much! (especially with labeled dishes :<)



I bought some chicken breasts and opened BL's Fabulous "Dining with Dorothy" cook book to "Poultry"



Just a few changes and here we are! Enough for several days!



And a flower picture to top off the day ....

BAXTER FINDS THE COOL ....

Today is our last (of 5) 80 degree plus days here. Some got to almost 90. Bax (and all the bunns) found shade and fan-air and survived OK.


Some beloved (wise-acre) relative brought me this sign...



BL left for a few days, east of the mountains, to Wenatchee (talk about HOT!) today. I am IN CHARGE!!!! (Let's see here, first pants, then shoes ...)

"I DON'T LIKE HOT."

- The Princess -

Yes - it was 80 today and hotter coming for a few days. Doesn't often happen here in the air-conditioned Pacific NW, so we are not used to it. Lots of fans!
___________________________________________________________
Here is some crabbing info and pix.
Dungeness crab are quite plentiful around here and the season is currently open until end of September. Keep 5 males per day per person, must be at least 6 1/4" across the back. A person can have two traps going at once.
Normally, BL and a friend go crabbing about once a week in a nice boat and get their limits very fast and that is usually enough crab for us for the week!
There is a dock at Coronet Bay, just south of Deception Pass. It floats and so it rises and falls with the tides. The dock is part of the State Park and many boaters moor to it for the night and also to await the slack tides through Deception Pass. I heard it has some dungeness crab there and so I went early last Wednesday morning to check it out, since no boat is needed!
The dock was chock-a-block full of boats, including the Lady Washington, a big sailing ship replica of the boat Robert Gray sailed to discover the mouth of the Columbia River in 1792. (A sort of sister ship, the Hawiian Chieftan, was also there.) So I hung my traps over the edge, baited with chicken pieces, in between the boats and took my chances. Didn't work - pretty well skunked - lots of little ones and females.
But, by 10:30 all the boats left so I had the whole dock to try out, and I did - still to no avail. A few other crabbers were there too, a couple keepers amongst the lot of them.
Fortunately, the next day BL and friend saved the day by scoring fine so I am about to shuck some and enjoy a big Crab Louie!!! Good to have a woman who knows how to bring home the bacon, so to speak!

The far end of Coronet Bay empties out well as the tide falls and here are some of a flock of about 50 blue herons standing in the shallow water, way over there, fishing and feeding!


Close up of a few of the birds ...


Goose Rock, which rises above the Bay.



That long, low dock is the crabbing and mooring dock - a really pretty place!
"PFFFFHHHTTTTT - Got carrots???" - The Bunns

"A BUNN'S HOME ....

... is a great place from which to watch the world go by." - Benji



Benji has really taken to getting snuggled down right against the inside wall of his box - he happily whiles away a large part of these warm sunny days in there. I think a fan blows a breeze through it!
