We loved those date fudge squares during the recording...so delicious!
The vocal booth that Joby built for recording (so we can reduce the sound of the cicadas)
I feel sorry for the cows - but at least they have each other at this moment - and great pasture

The beaches here...
One more pic from the recording - Manose Joby and Deva (it was a HOT day, and you can't see the ice packs under the computer which kept getting too hot without them)
It's all about blue berries and oranges!
Our favourite beach - where the river meets the ocean
