Tuesday, July 2 – Rocky Point Creamery

I picked up Norma (I dangled the promise of ice cream and sunflowers in front of her, and she decided she could clean the house tonight), and we took a long ride in the country to find the Rocky Point Creamery. Unfortunately, it started to rain as soon as we got there.  Small drops were wind driven, quickly getting on the lens of our cameras.  However, there were still some bees working the flowers, and goldfinches flitting above.  They did not mind the rain. The dairy farm Ice Cream Shop I got out an umbrella from the car that quickly turned useless, practically folding in half (time to get a new one).  But I did the best I could, walking the perimeter of the property, which is a working dairy farm.  At the front of the property is the large ice cream shop, with plastic cow benches outside.  To the right of the shop is a large sunflower field, and if you buy cut flowers for a dollar apiece, the funds are donated to St. Jude's.  Chickens in the yard Down the ramp! After my walk, of course we got ice cream.  There were at least a dozen flavors to choose from, all homemade, and all delicious.  On the way back home, we stopped by a farm with a bunch of little brown and white chickens going in and out of an old trailer.  I've included a couple of pix here, as a bonus. So, despite the rain, this photo walk in the country was very worthwhile, thanks to the sunflowers, the chickens, and especially the ice cream!
