Sun's up, un huh, looks okay!

The world survives into another day.  And I'm thinking about eternity.  Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me...

Early indication.

Wrong again!!

The Speeder group did show up but they only did a day trip from Willits to Fort Bragg and back.

No weekend camp out like I previously thought.  That must be another group.
Bye bye!

Revisiting Otis Johnson Park

 The steps have been refurbished.

 The retaining wall is starting to have a fern forest grow out of it!

Morning dew on the leaves.

An amazing pocket park located inside our city limits!!
A = HWY 1 and Laurel.  B = entrance to park

What do it mean?

I noticed a newly installed "Iron Ranger" beside the Haul Road!  
User fee?  Pot Hole Fund?  I'm sure it is gonna mean money one way or another.


I am happy to see the "Speeder People" back in town.  This group arrived a few days early to get things ready and put up signage for their upcoming weekend camp out. 

I'm told about thirty Speeders will be in town from all over the country.
Keep an eye out for them.  They are cool!!
Here's a video from an earlier visit.

Initial Findings

 Lolli and I have returned home to Fort Bragg after taking care of Lolli's mother, Margaret, in Shoreline,Seattle.  Either Lolli or I have been with Margaret for the pass three and a half years, the final three months with Hospice Care.  Margaret passed away March 24th, at home, after a long decline.  She was 96 years old.

So, now I'm back and for the first time in a long time, I set off on my early morning walk to see "whatz sup" with Fort Bragg.  The first thing I noticed was one of the Hawthorne trees along Franklin Street has started to bloom.  In fact, I understand this bloom arrived right around April 1st.  Quite nice!!

 I see the skateboard park is finished.

 Another view of the skateboard park with the V. Starr Center in the background.  I did stop in the V.Starr Center for a sad but hopeful look at the closed and covered lap pool.  Well done, Fort Bragg for voting to get the pools operating again.

Swinging through Otis Johnson Park I see the old steps are being replaced and it looks like this project is almost finished.

By the way, did anybody notice last night's full moon.  Startled me!!  So, unexpected and boom, there it was!
