Instructions: Scrub. Under a warm shower, dip into jar and then rub across body to exfoliate all over. Rinse.

dragonfruit

Has anyone ever tried a dragon fruit. I could not get myself to spend the $6.50 but now I feel like I might have missed out on something magical.

These ones came from vietnam, but how crazy that is really native to central america and was brought to vietnam by the french.

The dragonfruit is native to Central America. According to Aztec literature, Pitahaya fruits date back to the 13th century. In Vietnam, where it is extensively grown, Pitaya fruit is known as thang loy. It is believed that the fruit was introduced to Vietnam by the French and today, the average yield per hectare is 20-25 tonnes.

Unbalanced

This is the back of a house near (e:Heidi)'s. Theft window placement is so unbalanced it makes me think it was larger before or something.

Swimming at the beach

I am so glad I got to go swimming. I have no pictures but (e:heidi,52672) , took some. Just like when it is warm out and the super shallow is super warm, today that part was super cold. Once it was deep enough to swim in the water was about the same as usual. The water temp doesn't fluctuate as fast as the air. It was so great to swim without the lifeguards present. You could actually go out to where you could swim instead of wade.

I really feel like they need to change the whole system during the summer. Make it swim in the lines in for protection or swim outside at your own risk. Even if it is 18 and over something but I would really like somewhere you could just go out and full on swim. Seems like every other city on water has beaches like that. It makes me hate Buffalo sometimes.

The Steer Restaurant

Tried to go to Pho 99 for dinner last night but it was closed so we went to the Steer. I had never been there for dinner. By the sign on the outside that said, steaks, ribs, fresh seafood and the name Steer, I got the idea that it was a steakhouse.

However, the menu inside has no steak or ribs but instead a bunch of tasty small size tapas style foods. Thats a seriously change.

I mean it tasted delicious and I would totally go back but it was definitely not filling like the steak I wanted ever the whole day of hiking. I had the lamb burger, the calamari in lime chili sauce (amazing) and the fig proscuitto pizza.

Update: They own Dug's Dive and the Lake Effect Diner too Dug's Dive is definitely one of my favorites in town. I heard this year it will be open year round.

I added their current menu to this blog. You can now uploads PDFs to estrip.

Pear Time

The wind blew all the pears down. I am kind of sad because they weren't ripe yet and because they have the stupid blight. Luckily, the blight is only on the skin and the pears will ripen soon enough even off the tree.

Griffis Sculpture Park

I really enjoyed the day at Griffis Sculpture Park with (e:matthew), (e:enknot), (e:keithT), (e:terry) and I went out down to the park.

(e:keith) had a hard time getting 3g so he went to the top of the tower
image

The white flowers are awesome.
image

Keith looks like he is having fun.
image

This is matthew from the tower
image

This statue was gigantic.
image

The palette hive was awesome. It seems like they nailed it together and then shaved it with a chain saw.
image

(e:keith) really loves a handful of metal
image

here is (e:Terry) as a monkey, you should have seen (e:keith)'s reach
image

(e:Terry) and (e:enknot) in a tree
image

Here is the KML file to track our path through the woods. I figured it would almost be impossible to find some of the stuff again without it. I forgot to track the part from the parking lot to the cement bags sculpture, the place where I started recording.

injera and grapes

I ate so many grapes at the Eastman house. Then we went out for Ethiopean vegan food. Not my favorite but not terrible although I am not a fan of the ace bandage resembling injera bread which is made of formented Teff. What it really needed was like goat or Lamb. I love that my phone thinks Lamb needs to be capitalized. I concur.
