There is a loop road around our island that gives me a 12 km run... which I do once a week. Today I will post 13 photos of things I see along the route. Most photos taken today.

"You will eat, by and by,
In that glorious land above the sky;
Work and pray, live on hay,
You'll get pie in the sky when you die. "

"Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature." -Gerard De Nerval
I asked the clerk here one day what I could trade for some bananas. She said she could only take money. So I asked her why the name said Trading Post? I have not hardly gone back since, but I do admire the flower boxes... every year they are home run!
"And I don't cook, either. Not as long as they still deliver pizza." -Tiger Woods
There are several artists and artisans here on Mayne Island. We overheard quite a lengthy debate on the ferry one evening as to the difference between an artist and an artisian. The artist is one who practices an imaginative art... the artisan is a creative craftsman. Can you add to this?
"All of the animals except for man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it." -Samuel Butler
"Flatter not thyself in thy faith in God if thou hast not charity for thy neighbor." -Francis Quarles
Her dog, Jesse, is such a freindly dog and came out of the pond to say hello to us.
"They [dogs] never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation." - Jerome K. Jerome
