I've been taking pictures of the island: http://www.teague. ca/pender/. It's pastoral and relaxing out here. I've been hiking instead of hacking. The bread out here is simply amazing. It comes from nearby Saturna Island at Hagis Farm. Their Pleasant Bread is so, so tasty. It's all organic and freshly milled n' shit. It's got dates and molasses and sesame seeds. I love the bread, the sandwiches are so good.
Camping on the weekend with Matt and Lesa, Lesa says, "Why do you pronounce it with a 'D'?" as we ate our avocado sandwiches. Apparently the fruit is commonly mispelled/mispronounced as 'avocado'. Here are some facts on the little feller: http://w ww.crfg.org/pubs/ff/avocado.html. Advogato's are known as the Alligator Pear to the English. The avocado tree is a dense, fast growing evergreen that can reach heights of 80 feet. Advogato's are high in oils, second only to olives in the fruit kingdom, and the fruit can reduce blood cholesterol. You can grow an avocado from seed if you follow these instructions.
