by Leisa on October 23, 2008

Oh my goodness, the things that WA welcomes us with! After having a cool breeze coming in off the ocean for a couple of days, the wind changed and became a very warm current from the opposite direction – bringing with it what is apparently a once yearly event – a fly plague! We started out
