Some last minute surfperch fishing at Mission Beach— let me know if you need tips to just get a perch— easy peasy and always fun to be out in the ocean. My skills brought no bass or croakers (or is it these croakers? or these? maybe time will tell— would need more summer anyway) or bonitos (I’m told those bonitos are mostly in the bay), but still pretty damn great.
Now just waiting for some dollies here in Juneau— I’ve heard rumors!
Such an awesome park— and almost no one there— great “yuppy camping” haha— get some wine, avo’s, cards and an ipod or radio w speakers and you’re all set!
Went a few times and caught the bug— can’t wait to get out there again— an awesome time, and these instructions are great— fun to be out there in the ocean and reel them in!
Perch fishing (I think I can dial up to bass or bonito— would be cool) in the Coronado surf— nice!
My water’s been out a couple days— that meant some inconvenience and not feeling great, but also a morning swim, which turned really nice once I got up and there (no workout, just a swim) (and was lucky got a lane with all the “early birds” (mostly seniors)), and then tonight my landlord (feeling terrible about it all— he saw me at the pool!) took me in for a meal of some rockfish someone gave him yesterday— he was on the phone with a builder so I got to cook— butter lemon salt pepper 350 degrees can’t go wrong— and a wine from a grape I’d never even heard of— and hearing him talk about places I haven’t been or known about— and took a shower there rather than at the pool! A good cool shower that can feel great afterward…maybe I’m a little too glad, but I’m feeling glad. And glad about this upcoming summer in Southcentral, and next week to Fairbanks and CA.
Pics from my younger brother’s visit out west. Some chilly water in Feb but was awesome. Not pictured: me getting beat at Carcassonne a lot and not accepting any instruction. Or the insane cheese steak he ordered. USS Midway. Etc. So happy he could make it out.
Little bro is in SD with me— hardly ever see that guy— played some golf, saw two aircraft carriers, cool music, and now about to beat him at Carcassonne— nice! (…lost)
“Huell’s tour of Richmond includes a look at the redevelopment of the old Ford assembly building.”
“Located at the confluence of the Sacramento and the San Joaquin River, the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is made up of wetlands marked by channels and an extensive system of levees. Huell visits this vital part of our state and learns that it is many things–a destination for boating and fishing, a vital habitat for migratory birds, one of the most fertile agricultural areas in California and the source of drinking water for many Californians.”
“Huell learns about Native American fishing techniques on a trip to Eureka with members from the Yurok tribe at the mouth of the Klamath river.”
Wow, that’s some beautiful footage and music. I dare not see On the Road (incidentally rereading it now— so great), but this one is tempting— Big Sur is some heavy and sad stuff though— DARK stuff about a body and mind breaking down— not sure if they could get all that on film, or if I’d want to see such a sad film (a book can go further and still be readable I think).
And saw a great sad movie last night too (not that sad’s so great at all): Take This Waltz— heartbreaking— btw had an amazing moment in the first scene.
