A Bit of the Local Art

While I was home this week I had lunch in Orick, which is about 40 miles South of where we live. I took advantage of the trip to take some pictures of the burlwood artistry that can be found up in our neck of the woods...



Also, it was a beautiful day for a drive along the coast. Here's the proof:


Lunchwalking with Court

At long last, a return to Lunchwalking! Today, I walked through Chinatown in San Francisco and returned to downtown via the North Beach route along Columbus. It was a fun walk. I only wish I'd had more time to stop and take pictures of everything to give you even more of the flavor of San Francisco.

I've been under-the-weather lately so I've been working from home since Thursday. Planning on getting back to the Bay Area on Tuesday.

So I got to come home and see Angie and the Dude. The Dude is getting huge, of course. He's still a big baby and just wants to play. He's only 4 months old.


Angie seemed pretty happy I decided to drop in for a visit. We had a nice weekend just hanging out together and walking around town with the Dude.

The house is starting to need a fair amount of work since I'm not home very often. I may consider taking some time off after the Failover is released this month so I can take care of responsibilities around here.

Anyway, we're getting our first Starbuck's in just walking distance up Cooper Street from us. There are those who might say Crescent City has finally "arrived". Since I have a certain daughter who wouldn't set foot in a place that had no Starbucks, rest assured dear.

I haven't been to the beach at all while I've been home but I hope to get over there tomorrow before I leave.

I've been revamping the Lunchwalk so next week, expect a new and improved Lunchwalk feature.

That's about all for now. Gotta put the wolfy Dude in his kennel and get some shuteye myself.

Hope you're having fun!
