It's been really windy here, very dry winds that are unusually cool, as opposed to the hot Santa Anas that we are usually treated to.
My patio chair's cushion took a sail to the lawn! Oops, maybe I should have taken the photo after I emptied the dish drainer...
Due to a patient-free day at work, I was actually able to leave before dark. I took the pedestrian bridge over the freeway towards the beach.
In all the years I have been driving, a train has never been on this trestle as I've driven under or over it. I find that amazing since I pass this trestle currently up to 10 times a week at all different times, and lived downtown three separate times in my early 20's.
Our pier is reported to be the longest wooden pier in California. You can see the Channel Islands in the distance, which are a National Park and uninhabited by humans.
More islands to the northwest. I'll take this walk a lot more often after work once the sun sets a bit later!
After dinner play included cutting the sashing pieces for Sunday Picnic, the Brown Bag Quilt Contest project, and stitching up the first two blocks. Liking it so far.
