The Apple Shack


It doesn't look like much does it? O but the wonders inside! 15 varieties of organic apples plus about 5 different kinds of pears arrayed in peck baskets on shelves. $1.35 per pound. You weigh what you want, consult a weight-to-dollars chart above the scale for the total and leave your money in a jar. Another version of the honour system Gabriola style. At the end of Berry Point Road.

Point-and-hope Nikon again. This is getting old...

Snap,
I forget about your point and hope system. Lord, I do that with every one I take. Today I forgot my memory card. Took about 25 photos and phfffft, nothing, notta, no way jose. Can't save any photos on my trusty Canon. Thanks be to heaven the photos weren't the end all, be all of my photographic career. Just some berries and moss on a stone wall. That said, I dearly love the honor system for distributing fruits and veggies. GIves us all hope for humanity doesn't it!

You leave the money in a jar? That is fantastic and by no means a sign of the times! Just great!
The hula shot is so cool! :-)
