Random Bites in July

july beach

July was a good month for...............................

drinking Rosé from Provence to beat the heat

bird watching

growing tomatoes

weekly grilled vegetable sandwiches made from local produce

farmers' markets

the beautiful Jersey shore (sans "Snooki" & "The Situation". ugh)

What will August bring? Probably the same things, only more heat and better produce!

Stay tuned.

Lovely tour of your month! Enjoy August....maybe it won't be so very warm.
Stacey, I like your understanding of New Jersey better than my distant pop cultural understanding of New Jersey. It seems suspiciously like Atlantic Canada.

I love all your ways of beating the heat in July, but just hearing the name Snooki and that TV show just gets my gall. It irks me that people think of this when they think of our state.

Now these are scenes from the NJ that I know and love! I go to Sea Watch beach in Manasquan - a few blocks North of Pompano - I would love to meet up sometime. Enjoy a Snooki-free August!

I love seeing the other side of the beach/shore. Great photos!
It's overcast and cool here. Again.
Here's hoping you get some cooler temps. (Trying to catch up and visit my blogger family. Can you tell?)

I love this - was planning a welcome August post - but don't know if I will get around to it. Hmmm, don't know Snookie. Does one need to watch tv to know Snookie? (I love beating the heat with a rose wine from Provence...)
Oh, that beach looks so nice, so does the wine!
Looks like life is good Stacey.
