From The Publisher's Desk
Del Norte County doesn’t take weekends off, so how can we? When I became publisher I volunteered Rick for weekend photo duty. With his camera bag slung over his shoulder, Rick travels from venue to venue capturing weekend event images for our newspaper and to upload on our Web site photo albums.
Saturday I tagged along like I usually do. Rick’s official assignment was the Coastal Expo, but I added other stops like The Dutch Gardener’s. I couldn’t miss this local rite of spring! Sadly, Rick made me promise not to bring home a single plant until I had a space prepared for it.
Kees and Teri said it had been a mob scene there Saturday morning. Kees pointed to empty spaces where hanging baskets had been. With help from their Rotary exchange student Guido and Teri’s sister, The Dutch Gardener set a new opening day record. As we toured her garden, Teri picked an armful of Swiss chard for me that resulted in a white bean and chard cassoulet for our Saturday night dinner.
Next I suggested we stop by Crescent Harbor Gallery’s Salad Luncheon and Art Auction fundraiser. We arrived just in time to bid on and win a Garetta Lamore watercolor. We met Chuck Keeley, the association’s new president, and Rick talked guitar with local music legend Dale Morgan who strolled into the gallery wearing a vintage top hat.
