I've Started a Fire... (lots more pictures)

 ...for us to sit by under the stars.

                              Tonight's dinner is from the sea, including purple potatoes, apples and tomatoes.
 We start off with a apple slaw.

 The main course is Halibut with asparagus, fresh crab and lobster (so much fun to crack open and eat with drawn butter... messy!!!) Also scampi and clams in a delicious tomato sauce. I almost forgot the purple potatoes with squash and red peppers.

      I've invited a few musicians to come and play for us so we can dance and let our spirits soar!

    Anyone have room for chocolate?

      Ok I'm going have to start making dolls again...  this has been fun~

The Traveling Gypsy Caravan (lots of pictures!)

4 of us are part of a gypsy traveling caravan....
Sonia and KJ and myself.

It's a beautiful sunrise as we waken and take a look around our surroundings.
You can see our 4 caravan's (this is before we went crazy fixing them up!!!)
Once we got going it was hard to stop. Colors and texture!!!
If we pull up to your street your always welcome to sit and have tea, relax and read a book or even have a lie down for a short nap.
If you stay we will light the candles and put on our aprons and fix you dinner that is except Renee I told her in the beginning I'd be her personal chef...
Hmm lets see how about clams and asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon to start.  Fresh vegetables and fruit will definitely be on the table as well as roast chicken and salmon. Plenty of red wine, music and shared stories. Let's go down by the fire and have our coffee and tea.
What a grand first evening on the road.....
