Fingerstyle Todd

I was finally fortunate to see my buddy Todd play his fingerstyle guitar tunes at the Blue Lake Folk Festival this afternoon. I unfortunately messed up the recording device and only got the last song of the set. I did get a few nice shots which hopefully make up for my failures. Sorry Todd!

On the road again... for one night anyway.

A little water break en route to Patrick's Point.

Ocean view near Trinidad, and a nicely trimmed mustache.

This is how wood is hauled when you ain't got a pickup.

Glass shards are bad.

Blue Lake Pageant

Green Sport Utility Vehicle

For those of you with a suntan on your neck, but a little green in your blood this might be just the fix.

Slacklining at the beach

Went to Moonstone Beach over the weekend and set up a line on some bolts previous visitors had placed in the rocks. I'm not an advocate of bolting just anywhere, but I couldn't complain about the views.

The New View

This is the view looking out my front door during my summer stay at Brian and Sara's. It's a bit different than the old garbage truck view.

The wood fire sauna covered in flora. It will hold about 10 comfortably. Consider this an open invitation.

Greenhouses are imperative for Humboldt coastal weather. There is a drip and spray system hooked up so one can simply place there plants in and go sip some tea in the garden.

To be sparing of speech is natural.

A whirlwind does not last the whole morning,
A downpour does not last the whole day.
Who causes them?
If even heaven and earth cannot cause them to persist,
how much less can human beings?

To him who identifies with integrity,
the Way awards integrity;
To him who identifies with failure,
the Way awards failure.

Creatures of the Night

Our friend Jen gave a talk "Creatures of the Night" tonight near Redwoods National Park, and brought along some friends with her, "Spotty" and "Al." Al the Great Horned Owl is shown below checking me out.
