Our friends who came from Texas!
These are our friends from Encinitas,
with whom our Texas friends stayed with.
We had baked salmon, true bleu salad, watermelon,
hummus with fresh veggies and stress free herbal tea.
And the some of the best company ever!
And we had one lone duck who was very friendly,
