Talk like a pirate day! Well I did some of that today and lots of work today. We have a pirate theme at work so it seemed befitting to wear the garb. Hope everyone had a wonderful day and has a great weekend.

Fort Bragg in August. It is a nice place to be especially when you spend most of your summer in Redding, CA. Redding just gets too down right hot at times and you need a break. We’ve found a nice break to take is the Art in the Gardens at the Mendocino Coastal Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg. This was our second year attending. Last year worked out better and hopefully next year will turn around.
They stuck us in a second row and there was not a well defined walk-way between us the others in front of us. Next year we WILL have a different set-up.
We we able to rent a house for 5 nights this year and only eat out once. Silver’s by the Bay or something like that. The place is in Noyo Harbor and is a decent place to eat.
Took this shot at sundown obviously. Everyone with cameras were getting out of their seats to take snaps by the windows. We had a window table and I took this photo with the P&S. Thought it turned out well considering.

So Smokey

Here is my entry from July 8th the day I took this photo:

Today was the 3rd day in a row that the readings for Redding air were over 250 in the “Very Unhealthy” to “Dangerous” range. The fires have been burning over a month now and even though most are “contained” it is still very bad. Contained just means that there is a perimeter around the fire and that they should spread any further but there are still burning and filling the air with smoke. I just hope that we don’t have to wait till the winter rains before we see clear blue skies again.

It has been a nasty fire season so far. The past week alone it seemed there was one or two fires every day in the local area. We’ve been lucky so far that no fires have happened in our canyon. About 4 or 5 years ago there was a summer that saw about 4 fires down our ridge. The worst thing is that the fire season is really about to start and fires have been raging for over 2 months already.
