This evening, Heather and I walked around the neighborhood while the Earth continued spinning its path around the sun. The moon waited in the wings, soon to play a starring role.
- In addition to snapping the picture above, I learned that I’m gay. This, according to some discriminating bloke who hollered, “F**k you, f*g!” as he tooled by with his dirty pickup. This was a surprise, even to me. ;-) ↩
Saturday evening, I went on a bike ride to end the day. On the way back, I stopped at some favorite spots to take some pictures.
Suzi and I preceded the kids by a day on our Fourth of July camping trip. This is likely the first time Suzi and I have camped without the kids since Ashley appeared on the scene. Wow!
We had decided late in the game that we were going to go camping this weekend. There were no reservations available so we thought we’d throw a tent in the car and head to the beach on Thursday after Suzi got home from working the night, hoping to find a walk in campsite.
So we did but we weren’t finding anything. Headed south, Suzi told me to turn right, she’d seen a campground sign. It didn’t look promising, but we pulled in to take a look. They had one site available from a cancelation just minutes before. As we were pondering, someone else called to see if there were any sites available. We heard the host discussing all the campgrounds that were full with the caller and decided it was either this place or our back yard. We took it.
We drove home to pack the rest of our stuff and then back again in time to see the setting sun.
Biking back from school board meeting on Veteran’s Drive, I stopped briefly to take a sunset1 shot. I love the clouds!
I enjoy biking in the late evening. Traffic has gone home, the wind has faded. Cruising along the path is noiseless and tranquil.2
Flying home, I looked out the window to see the setting sun reflected on the nacelle and leading edge of the wing.
Pulling into the driveway after a quick jaunt, the sky greeted us home.
