While in Cozumel, I got to watch the local conservation effort for the sea turtle population. The east side of the island has lots of sandy beaches where sea turtles lay their eggs. Unfortunately, there’s enough human and pest interference to disturb the nests. So they are transferred to a secured and monitored area to gestate and hatch. I saw a couple of tracks in the sand from the mother turtles as I was wandering about the beach that day waiting for the release.
The nests are then dug up and the baby turtles transported to one of the nearby beaches to be released into the surf at dusk.No comments
There was a drum jam, beach burn, and general party for the summer solstice at Golden Gardens Thursday night. I’ve never seen the place quite so packed. Cars were parked Everywhere. Those little dots, those are people. We were parked 1/2 mile away.
Lots of drums. Probably 20 or 30 of them at the peak.
Quite a sunset. If only there was a little less pollution. Well, then there wouldn’t be quite the colors.
Those are the Olympics on the horizon to the left. This is looking roughly northwest. It’s always a trip to see the sun set so far to the north.
Banging on the bongos like a … oh well, whatever. nevermind.
After it got darker, the fire was most of the light. I was almost out of battery so no flash pictures. Plus, flash pictures just don’t look right to me. Oh for an asa 1600 digital camera…
A cardboard SUV just plunged into the fire. Good place for it.No comments
I’m off to go riding, since this is likely to be the ‘Last, Best Day’ that we’re going to get for a long while.
Update: (and correction) After biking to work and heading back home, I’ve stopped by the Fremont Oktoberfest to see the ‘Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving Contest’. Pumpkin gore everywhere. I must learn how to operate dangerous powertools so that I can carve like the masters. I stuck around to listen to ‘Easy Big Fella’, a local ska band. I’m thinking that I should go for a while and try to hear live music at least once a week for a few months. Might be an interesting experience.No comments
24 hours in the life of the wired fool.
The day started the night before with a Paperboys cd release party, a little bit of wandering around golden gardens, and then dinner. Monday was all computer frustration, debugging and crashing. And a bit of blogging, but that’s not the main gig.
Sound track for the day, so helpfuly saved from my mp3 player, was: all the Paperboys albums, Harry Connick Jr.: When Harry met Sally Soundtrack, Peter Gabriel: So, Cowboy Junkies: Trinity Sessions, Pale Sun and Miles from our Home, Tracy Chapman: Tracy Chapman, The Beatles: Sgt Peppers, Counting Crows: August and Everything After, Jimi Hendrix: axis bold as love and Are You Experienced.
something more than these old feet brought me here
so these feet can’t take me away
