During Finals we had the German and Chinese Language Residents and some German-speaking students over for a little cultural exchange. We made s’mores (definitely an American treat) and the German Language Resident made Spaghetti Ice which looks like spaghetti, but is really whipped cream with ice cream through a press that makes it look like pasta, topped with pureed strawberries and coconut flakes. Yummy.
We replaced our dying tangerine tree with a dwarf avocado. We choose a large size as we don’t want to wait 20 years to make homemade guacamole.
The store at the botanical gardens is closing for the season, so we had to go one last time before fall. And then we had to go check out the current exhibit in the one-room gallery.
The duck on the pillar at Harvey Mudd College is gone. I hope it’s because the pole has just been painted, and the duck might reappear.
Memorial Day was a perfect day to try out our new car bike-rack and take a ride around the Back Bay in Newport Beach.
Bring on June Gloom!
