Octopus and Sand Crabs

I finally finished my portfolio for my class. Hurray! I made the deadline! Hopefully I will get the credits to move up the pay scale.

I've updated my blogger and haven't figured out how to adjust the picture size yet.

These pictures are from July also...I'm kinda behind. My DH took his cousin and his family diving for octopus. I've posted pictures of some of the octopus they caught.

These are some pictures of the place we went. I didn't go in the water, but I was amazed by the size of the sand crabs! They were huge!

No one disturbs them, so they come out during the day. I have posted a few pictures of them here. The mounds on the sand are from the crabs and holes they dig.

I also found a puka shell. It was a good size also. I took a picture of it and posted it here too.

Sweet Potatoes

I'm very behind in my postings. These pictures were taken in July. It is a picture of our sweet potato patch before we decimated it. The next picture is of me trying to dig out the potatoes. (ha,ha) DH had to come with a tool to come help me dig out all the potatoes. Then there is a picture of the area we dug up. I planted more slips...I must be crazy. (ha, ha) There is a picture of all the potatoes we dug up after they were washed. The potatoes on the plate are steamed and ready to be packed up for our potluck lunch at the Ukulele Festival.
