Summer, Phase Two
Randy’s back in school, but the weather outside is still very summer. Turned off the phone and went down to the cove this morning for a swim and photo shoot with the marine life. Beautiful conditions, even if there was a bit of a crowd. Said hi to a friend. Had a lot of fun with the GoPro. More photos cross-posted from Instagram after the jump. (more…)
Between Pride and the San Clemente Surf Festival this was supposed to be a very busy and very photographic weekend. Instead I’m waking up to thunder, lightning, pouring rain and two terrified dogs.
Kayaking for Freedom
Watched this year’s San Diego Big Bay Boom fireworks show from kayaks off Coronado Island. Easily the best seats in the house, even if they were slightly damp.
Beating the Heat
Craving something cold, so this is today’s effort to beat the heat.
Time to burn
Trying to figure out what to do with tomorrow’s leap second. So many options, so little time.
Great anniversary gift
Seven years and eight days after California allowed Randy and I to marry, that legal status now protects us in all fifty states. Thanks to everyone who made this reality possible.
Sometimes being in a state that’s ahead of the curve (like California) lets us overlook the fact that there were millions of Americans who didn’t have that right recognized until today. It’s been too easy to just fly over the states that refuse to treat us with dignity, and where their own people were denied the protections and benefits we had. Not that I really want to go to those states that often, but it’ll be nice to have one less reason to avoid them.
The plug-in that handled these automatically seems to have run amok. Exploring some options now, including manual cross posts, at least until I get back to a point of actually writing words here.
Randy on Vacation
Lemon zest #petunia on the patio. Happy solstice!
Someone had to come out and supervise the gardening. Maybe he’s been disappointed with the herbs in his share of the leftovers lately. #onofre #newsummerhairdo
