A few pictures of people and places not too far from home.
Some local kids playing. I didn't see the one kid when I walked by because he was up a tree. After he made his way down, they were more than happy to pose for a picture. Plus, they liked seeing their picture on the back of the camera!
A retaining wall washout on a stream the meanders through the neighbourhood. I assume it happened recently since it's the beginning of rainy season. I feel for the residences who now have part of their home in the stream. I can't imagine any level of government is going to rush to their rescue and compensate them.
We're quite happy for the arrival of an organic vegetable store that is soon to be opening up about a 5 min. walk from our home. It'll have veggies produced by local farmers, yum! Shopping for food here is a bit different than your average North American experience, you have to figure out where you can get what - as apposed to running to Walmart or SaveOn, and then maybe Costco. Some stores sell some pretty weird combinations of stuff. But maybe that's for a future blog post!
