  • Trip to Dakin

    Had a good trip out to Dakin Dairy Farm with Joy a couple weeks ago; my first. Stinky fun! Nice to get a tour of a local producer. Evidently dairy farmers are a dying breed. Sampled then bought some of their chocolate milk. Soon they’ll be producing their own cheese.

    A couple weeks ago, Devin asked if I’d be interested in coming out to the beach to help him try out his new kite surfing kite, which he’d just purchased off eBay. This particular kite is shaped like a “C” and is about 12 meters across… giant. Let’s just say so big, that, when we […]
