Out AND About Today

Went geocaching this morning, over in the Eastlake area on Olympic Parkway.  Found twenty four caches, didn't find three. Walked 7.2 miles in around nearly seven hours.  Boy, are my feet sore!

Here are some pictures:

I identify this butterfly as an Lorquin Admiral (Limenitis lorquini)



I thought "X" marked the spot only in pirate tales!  Actually, it's a couple feet away in the bush.



Didn't find the cache, but I DID find a fake plastic leaf...



Crossing the Rubicon?



Seems to be a classic pose of a Red Winged Blackbird. I saw maybe five in a row, calling to each other.



This cyclist cares not that we taxpayers have spent a fortune building bike lanes for the likes of him.  Also, is not familiar with the concept of letting pedestrians know he is passing before he zooms by. What if I had flung out my arms in an act of irrational exuberance, kabonging him with my mighty walking stick? What then, eh?



That is about it for today!

Up & Down & Out & About

Seven more geocache finds in the Sweetwater County Park area have put me at 1,702 finds.Only 298 till my next goal is met!

Took a laundry basket full with three drawers worth of clothes to the thrift store this afternoon.  It's a sad thing, but maybe someone can use them.  I got an absolutely charming hand-made card from the orchestra kids thanking me for the donation of C.'s violin.  I know she would be happy to know some student is able to use it!

A lot of the poppies are blooming, I'm sorry C. didn't get to see them


On another note, is it bad that I Google my relatives' names to see what they have been up too?  Isn't it great how the internet makes available the local police blotter?  I'm just glad my own transgression didn't make the 'net, although I WOULD like to see my booking photo!

Out And About

I slept on the couch Saturday night after watching several episode of Fawlty Towers.  Woke up at 4:40 AM, decided to drive over to UCSD for to check out a special "night" geocache.  The idea is you use a flashlight to follow little TINY reflectors in the trees along the the trail.  There are WAY to few reflectors, IMHO.  After a 1/4 mile or so I ran out of reflectors, and ran out of dark, as the sun was rising.  Another time.  Snagged my back-up caches, though.

On the way home I decided to try for a newly published cache on Kwaay Paay trail.  A leisurely stroll put me on the spot.  First To Find! As I was tucking the logbook back into its plastic bag I heard a voice. "Oh, darn!"  He missed it by a minute!

Afternoon Matt and I decided to head out to Borrego Springs to check out the serpent.  Also, geocaches.

The sloth.  Or rather, sloths!



A mess of tortoises.



My personal favorite.



How disrespectful am I?



And there are many more.  We found four of the five caches we looked for.  I fell asleep twice on the trip, coming and going.

The End

The Rising Gorge

Went out for a geocache this morning, took some photos for a panorama, which I created on the accursed Photosynth. Accursed because of all the login/password/special downloads hassle.  Hope it works for you!

Link to panorama.

You may have to download and install a program to access the panorama on Photosynth.  If you prefer not to, and I don't blame you, I made another panorama as a jpeg image.  It is around 1.2 megs in size.  Click here!  Opens in a new window!

Gone Gone Gone

Picked up a box with one new copy of Cinder and two copies of Scarlet, took 'em back to the library, barcoded 'em, they are GONE in five minutes.

Going out to Singing Hills this afternoon.

I discover we are a three music stand kind of family.  Who knew?

Made a trip to the waste disposal place today with a truck-load of bags, mattresses, and a defunct screen door.  Some tears shed deciding what to put the truck.

It's an hour short of a week since she passed away, and here I am fooling around on the computer, just like then.  Totally unreal.

Made a replacement cache for SLPB #3.  Maybe this one will last longer!
