The mission: Get to the Farmer's Market before the rain got there.
|Rent a bike.|
Sloane explained the system to me but it is too complicated to write here. Basically, you can rent a bike for a really cheap price and just leave it anywhere in the area. Of course, it might be gone when you come out of the store, but hopefully you can find another one somewhere nearby.

|This lady's hat was worth stopping her for.|
|I wanted to buy one of these big bones for the dogs I know on Culebra|
|With the wind whipping up and rain close by, |
it wasn't really a lemonade day but I really liked the stand
|Lots of homegrown asparagus. I wanted to go back to one place for some |
but too late; the rain did show up.
|Lots of memories in a bottle. Of course I bought the ginger beer.|
Sloane: Which one of you guys make these?
Man points to other man: He makes 'em, at least he says he does. His wife does most of the work.
I could imagine them meeting for coffee every day and I bet they do.
|Simple and functional|
This was a booth of doll clothes and doll shoes. Handmade I'm guessing. Sloane and I were creeped out.

Our scores. Amish jalepeno and cheese bread, one ginger beer, honey sticks in different flavors, some gorgeous homegrown tomatoes and organic eggs. Oh, in the plastic container? Homemade dog treats for Kobie. And then the rain came.
Mission accomplished. Home again home again, where Kobie was waiting. He was glad to see us.
