call me mellow yellow

I am trying to sleep

Shuckers giving those abalone the what-for

Cafe One, 753 North Main Street, Fort Bragg, CA

Beautiful weekend exploring a new part of the coast with new people...yellow is supposed to be the color that makes you happy...foggy weather is supposed to make you sad...combine the two for mellow contentment.

Desert Dog pretends to scope out the dog park booth, but he really is only interested in the treats on the table...

desert dog and i went for a long hike in the woods, to the Devil's Punchbowl near the border of Oregon....the hike was hard, but seeing the ravaged and naked pine trees along the trail, with piles of bark littered with bore holes at the base, the effects of the  pine beetle--that was more difficult.

the agreeable weather made me home sick...not for any specific place, but for every night spent sitting outdoors with a cool drink listening to the sounds....maybe i am warming up to the pioneer California...death valley?...the rustic dreams of early settlers...tough women trying to make their way in the WEST...

...since those days are long gone (and i doubt i would survive...although desert dog would), i am thinking of picking up this classic book by Helen Hunt Jackson instead or the movie in Technicolor!
