Attempt to walk down Charity Valley to look at Wildflowers. Had some trouble finding the trail. Left when a thunderhead was dropping lightning within 9 seconds of the trail.
Went out on a boat to take morning photographs. Ran out of gas on the south side of the Lake. Flooded the engine after changing tanks. Boated over to the west side of the lake and then the wind picked up.
Medium hike from Stanford Camp. Thunderhead built up and dropped just as I returned to camp. Took the shortcut back but it was a little muddy.
Emma and I went on a lobster boat tour in Kennebunk. We were on the Kylies' Second Chance. We saw former President George H. Bush's fishing boat with the Secret Service boat tied up next to it. We also saw Walker's Point where he and Barbara spend their summers, and St Ann's church where they attend Sunday services. We did catch a few lobsters and learned quite a bit about them.
This track is really off. It's a loop so it should start where it ended. I don't know what happened to my QSTARZ Q1000P but it is way off. We never walked east of Lyon but the track shows us walking on Divisadero which is three blocks away. Then suddenly the track corrects near the Broadway gate.
We sailed out into Boston Harbor and even tossed a few boxes of tea. It turned out to actually be a great day for the sail. At first, I was concerned about being too cold and having to deal with a lot of rain.There were only about 16 of us onboard so it was a very relaxing fun trip. Amazingly, most everyone volunteered to raise the sails.
Two days of walking the Freedom Trail. We did take a few side trips so our path meanders a bit from the Trail. The Freedom Trail begins at the Boston Common the oldest public park in the USA, and continues over to Charlestown with the Bunker Hill Monument and Old Ironsides. This year we did not ever make it over to Charlestown.
Class today at the Poudre Learning Center. We walked a different part of the trail than I have done before. It was cold and windy to start but once the wind stopped, it was quite warm.
Walked along the Beach on a record heat day. Found you could walk on the beach from Baker Beach all the way to Fort Point if you didn\'t let the naked gay men and their activity bother you.
Standard Tour of Ano Nuevo Elephant Seal Preserve. We were about a week too late to really see the mating season. Also, the docent said that the seals are much more active when it's cold and raining.
