We spent most of Saturday in Thibodaux picking satsumas and grapefruit and checking on the progress of the sugar cane harvest. It was one of those perfect days - the weather was just right, the sunlight nice and warm, the birds were busy and singing, the sounds of the cane trucks - totally peaceful.

The satsumas are delicious this year and bountiful...more than making up for the poor performance last year.

My first one of the season, nature's candy:

James' first one of the season and of his life:

and on the porch and with me:

La Luz, enjoying the porch, getting ready for sunset:

and with Xian:

Loki, burning off some serious steam with Star:

He slept the entire time we were driving home.
