James and I rode out to Deer Island and had a beautiful picnic sitting on a washed up log along the north side of the island. As we ate our refreshing meal of roasted red pepper crackers, avocado, tomatoes, salami, fresh jalapeno cheddar from the Ocean Springs Farmers Market, and wasabi almonds we listened to the waves come onto the shore.
It was not possible to spend the entire day at the island, because the garden was demanding some more work. We planted some more, and watered, and arranged until our hunger returned around dinner time. We rode our bikes to our friend Ben's house for a visit, with intentions of heading to the grocery for a burger, but when we pulled in the driveway, Ben's sweet daughter Lily came out to greet us with an invitation to eat some of the steak that they made for dinner.
We took them up on the offer and to go with the steak was mashed potatoes and english peas, what a great combination. Sleepiness set in and the desire to go to the grocery faded. We rode home and called it a night a bit early, but completely Exhausted.
