We had a superb weekend on the island. Our last sanity saver trip over this year. Maybe. If they have an opening, I'm taking it. We were literally off grid. There is no service where we stay, and we like it that way.
On the way home we stopped at a large produce stand and brought home some green and wax beans. I will be stopping there every year we head to the island from now on. They have a large variety of everything.
Came home to find out one of my chickens died.
We literally unpacked the truck, threw everything on the bed and kitchen counters, ran out to pick a tomato, and headed to the "Big City" to check on Mom. We took her some chocolates a woman makes on the island, one tomato (only one turning red that was a beefsteak type), and some popcorn she loves.
Mom looks much better, but has a long way to go to recovery. She still cannot drive herself anywhere, so between our Daughter K, her neighbor, my younger brother and I, we are trying to do our best, but we all have jobs/work/kids/garden to put up etc. It's been rough, so hence the trip to the island.
