26 Jan Thurs: Last day of work and Thanksgiving Beach Hike

Our last day of work came all too soon.  We feel very honored that Jo and Rex have decided to have a Thanksgiving with our little WWOOFing group.  The centerpiece will be a Kumara pie, vegan.  That's a sweet potato pie.
Teri gets up early to make the crust... the recipe is below
Morning work included turning one of the older compost piles...creating string supports for some of the veges...and peeling cordwood.
Molly turning the compost pile

Covered and done

Teri leaves her gloves in the glove pile...pretty sure that they will not get through customs.

Thanksgiving...after our swim -- Rex, Jacques and I went in, but the pix are on Molly's camera

The sandflies were biting, so Rex took his dessert and ate it with his ankles in the ocean

After work, people leave their boat haulers on the beach and take to the sea...
