Wishing you.........

Another day dawning on the V. Starr Center.
I hope more people take advantage of this wonderful fitness center.
One year ago I was able to swim two laps.
This morning I did my daily mile!!
It is amazing how much better I feel by finally getting off the couch!
I hope you resolve to get off the couch too!!
Come on in!  The water's fine!!!

Lunar Stolstice Eclipse Plus!

 I noticed the full moon out the window last night reminding me there was going to be a special Lunar Solstice Eclipse in a few hours.
This lunar eclipse was to be the first to fall on the winter solstice since 1638. The next solstice eclipse won't be until 2094!!
 Question being, with all the rain squalls, would it be visible here in Fort Bragg?

Yes!!  At 11:10 PM I got a break through the clouds!
The earth shadow well on its way to covering the moon.
That was it for me.  The clouds returned and I went to bed.

In the morning I discovered Cotton Auditorium's marquee in total eclipse!!
Coincidence?  I think not!!

Can you believe it!!

Finally, a port-a-pot at the Pudding Creek Beach.
For years folks thought the building to the left was a facility.  NOT.  It is a pumping station for sewage.
For several years I have been asking why there isn't a toilet and a garbage can at this popular beach and was told; the beach belongs to State Parks and other folks said it belonged to the city of Fort Bragg but mainly, the problem seemed to be, if those items were installed, someone will have to maintain them.

I don't know who stepped up, parks or city but it is about time.  Good Job!

Last rose of summer?

 Probably.  At least on this bush.

I couldn't pass up this photo opp.  Very Fort Braggian.

By the way.  There was a new combination this morning,  Two in the middle lit and the two outriders off!

See! See!

I told you something was fishy with the lights!  This morning there were three lit!

That's my walking partner Elias in the foreground.

Hey! Finally an update!!

This here is a conundrum.   Part of my early morning walk takes me past Cotton Auditorium.  Some days all four marquess lights are on.  Other times, one or three or, like this morning, just the two center ones.  I can't believe there are individual switches for each light and I can't believe they burn out that often and of course, being a guy, I don't ask anyone about it.  So, stay tuned.  I will keep checking and "documenting".

 It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas round here.

While in other parts of town it looks like Fall.
I couldn't pass this up.  Remember my shopping cart series?

Making progress at the V. Star Center!  We are 1/3rd of the way to the $300,000.00 needed by the 15th of this month!  Currently at $105,000.00.

And finally....
I'm up to something.  I got a plan!!
And a new website.
