Car-free Days

We've been car free all weekend. Haven't been inside a metal box on wheels at all.

Yesterday we pedaled up to Graton and stopped at the Far West Trading Company and sat for an hour or so at the tea bar chatting with the owner, Lou. We sampled two Puerh teas and had their best Sencha. We bought some 18 year old Imperial Puerh tea. Puerh tea is cooked and fermented, then aged for a long time. The aroma of the brewed tea is musty and vaguely mushroomy. It smells like the inside of a cave.

He's got a large Kwan Yin sculpture in his store that might be just the thing for our new entry. Next time I go up there, I'll drag the bicycle trailer.

Well, to answer the sign's question, the tea we bought is from China.

Oxygen-producing bicycle rack in downtown Graton.

Every kindergartener should have the chance to learn this important skill.
Besides, as Sammy's face shows, it's fun!
