Stop and smell the ... octopus??

The last couple of weeks has been filled with grant applications, fellowship applications, job fairs, graduations, and all the errands I couldn't get done in the hectic, last two weeks of school.  I have been on the road all day, every day since the 28th.  Today, I finally had a chance to notice that it was a beautiful sunny day, and realized that it has been for the last week +.  So I took a minute to take a few shots from the top of the hill, above where I live.
One side of the street: a panorama of three pics

And the other side of the street:

I also had to go to one of the smaller Southern villages, to collect a final exam from a student who begged me to change his failing grade.  So I waited for him in a small park across the highway from the village...

and relaxed in the shade whilst a roadside vendor was selling the days' fresh catch!
