It continues to be a treat to see so many trees down here laden down with oranges, grapefruit, and lemons. We're lucky enough to have friends with mature orange trees in their back yard. We've gone over several times to pick some of the beautiful and delicious oranges.

It's amazing how may oranges grow on a single tree. We all enjoyed picking them.

When we got home with our treasure, Mickey wasted no time preparing some fresh-from-the-tree orange juice.

I love the bright gold color of the oranges.

Here's to you, Mickey.


Mickey had to go home today after an 8-day stay. We had so much fun - I'll miss her.
