My husband has been a volunteer at Jazz & Oysters for several years but this was my first year helping out.
I worked at the dessert table & boy oh boy there were some tempting delights, all donated by local Bakeries & Restaurants!
This is how we cook oysters up here on the Willapa Bay, where some of the finest oysters in the Nation are grown by the way ;9
Although the day started out damp & grey, by noon the sun had come out and with it came many locals... ...to listen to the Ron Steen Trio & the beautiful voice of Marilyn KellerI was lucky enough to speak with Marilyn, who told me she has been singing since she was a child & that she learnt to sing in harmony when she was in kindergarten.
Of course that meant I didn't get any beading done this past weekend but that's OK, I'm planning to make up for lost time this evening
Here are two photos of the yellow dahlia...
taken this morning
& again this eveningIt's really got a grow on now & that bud next to it is getting bigger by the minute!
