Vinegar and Spice and all things nice…wait what?

IMG_0452

I believe the original rhyme goes “sugar and spice and all things nice.  That’s what little girls are made of.”  A popular 19th century nursery rhyme titled What are Little Boys Made Of?   So what’s with the random rhyme?  Well Little Pear (who happens to be full of vinegar and spice as of late) and I […]

Chasing Orca along San Juan Island
