Kim had second breakfast - french toast, poached eggs, sausage and bacon.
With my tummy now happy, I went next door to the nail salon. I didn't write down the name of the salon or the sweet young girl that did my pedicure. I was reading some entertainment magazine and she kept saying "Excuse me" every time she wanted to ask me if I wanted this or that service. I believe she was Vietnamese, and their voices are so soft, I could barely hear her. One time, I swear she asked me if I wanted my heels dyed. After I asked her to repeat herself 3 times, and I still didn't understand, I just said, "No thank you". Do my heels look like they needed to be dyed? Do people actually do that? Who checks out someone else's heels?
She did a very nice job on my toenails......although I maybe didn't need such a close up shot of them and my huge bunion.
We have a long term relationship, Mr Bunion and I. I keep thinking I'm going to have bunion surgery, but I've heard mixed reviews from people about whether they are glad they had it or not. I'd love to hear your opinion, if you have had the surgery. My bunion is not particularly painful, but finding shoes that don't hurt is a challenge. My current choices are generally flip-flops, crocs, or sneakers.
Now that I had my pedicure out of the way, we headed back toward the park. About 2 miles down the road is the Welk Resort. I believe this is a vacation time-share type place. It looked really nice from the outside. I wasn't interested in a tour. The golf course looked pleasant, but all I can judge by is how the greens look, because I don't play golf, so I wouldn't have a clue. We stopped here for the Monday Farmer's Market. There were only 4 or 5 fruit and veggie booths. The rest were open air market sales. Some cool stuff. Kim and I each bought a hat (in preparation for our day at the Safari Park). Here are a few shots that turned out. It was pretty bright out and I couldn't see the screen well enough to tell what I was shooting.
I thought the little yard do-dads were cute. It is hard to tell but they are all basically beetles, playing. Other than our new hats, we didn't find anything we couldn't live without. I think I will go back next Monday for some strawberries - they looked and smelled really good. I didn't buy any because we had some in the refrigerator.....had being the operative word. Dessert last night? Strawberry shortcake!
