crabbies and freaky garden creatures

It rained on our labor day parade. We planned on backpacking around Mt. Olympus, but instead drove around the olympic penninsula - hitting hot spots such as Forks WA, the HOH rainforest, Hurricane Ridge and Port Angeles.

These pics are along the Hoh River. Steven was fishing so no pics of him....



Richard and Steven had to get a hotel saturday night so that they could watch the BYU football game. No further comments on that - except that I am so glad BYU won because otherwise it would have been a truck full of 3 grumpy people instead of just 1.......

Steven did some crabbing in Port Angeles and got himself 2 good sized ones. I sat on the pier watching the full moon rise over Canada while reading Cold Mountain. Good book BTW. Richard ran back and forth between the two of us trying to keep us both happy.
No pictures from sunday - basically we drove home and hung out at Steven's Bachelor Pad. Rich and I played wii boxing and my back and arms are sooo sore today.....what a workout!

When we FINALLY got home, we spent an hour harvesting in the garden and found a few crazy things.......our sunflowers and marigolds bit the dust in the wind storm.........my green tomatoes are doing much better..........millions of cherry tomatoes......... a really weird carrot, and the hugest yellow brandywine tomato EVER.
