That's me waving "bye bye" from the Pudding Creek Trestle Bridge. My wife and I are leaving tomorrow for the Pacific Northwest and family holidays. I plan to do some walking and gawking whilst in the Seattle area so if I see anything of note I will post it on this site but, more than that, I want to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and safe holiday season. I will return for more "Walking and Gawking" in and around Fort Bragg the 6th of January, 2008.

This morning I enjoyed a special walk from Casper to Mendocino and back with two excellent walking friends. We ripped off nine and a half miles in just over three hours. Walking and talking sure makes the miles and time zip by. The short person was a happy camper throughout the trip and only faded towards the end! Thanks ladies for inspiring this walk!

Tomorrow evening will be what we call "First Friday". Shop owners spruce up a bit extra and stay open later the first Friday of every month but in December the dog is really put on for Christmas/Holiday shoppers. And this time, for the first time, I'm going to be selling my Fort Bragg "Odditiy" shirt, sweats and hoodies at my wife's Fort Bragg Fabric Studio which is located on the alley behind the Old Bottling Works building. 122 East Fir. "Fabric Studio" banners and signage will be visible when you get close. I will also have some of my "Franklin Street Re-do" photo essay books on hand. I hope you can walk over and take a look!

I had to go take a look. This is the storm drain outflow at Glass Beach. It is just getting going good with debris from our streets.
This is our first real rain of the coming rainy season.
when "Short Legs" and I did our alley walk. Here are some more photos from that walk and I have a question. Why would a Tulip Tree be budding and blooming on the 30th of November?
I have photographed this pole before but the lighting was better this time. It is an old redwood pole very similar to the two power poles that were recently removed from Laurel and Harold, square with the "hip cut" top.

I'm sure a book could be written about those ladies and their existance on that island surround by sea, wind and waiting.
I discovered another Fort Bragg blogger, biker, walker and photographer and she has been blogging longer than me!!
Great stuff and well worth checking out. I have added her to my list of favorite blogs links.
