Good grief today had plenty happening, not the least was a Friday night CFS again. Yummity Yum Yum.  BURRRP

The day showed up early as bright and clear and cold. Soo it warmed up enough to be enjoyable and the Teams gave it a work out. Check out the weather down at the Salt Water Pool in the Rockport Beach Park.  

It was so inviting that G Rock kept on trying to open Sierra’s door to go play in the water. The OFM threatened to lock G Rock in the glove box for the rest of the adventure if it did not behave.

After meandering around looking at things here and yonder we found something the OFM cannot recall ever seeing before. We were over by the sculpture garden and noticed this odd growth on a damaged palm tree.

What is that stuff we wondered???? G Rock rolled over to it and climbed up for a close look.

G Rock called back that it looked like fruit. We found one of them laying on the border wall and G Rock went in for a close inspection.  We still were not sure what it is.

After a few more exciting events we headed back to the Castle.  The Internet explained that it is palm tree seeds. Some palm trees have those kind of seeds and some palm tree seeds are coconuts. Almost all palm trees have to be grown from seeds and not cuttings.  WOW getting some new pieces of education for the OFM Teams is a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
