The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

And it is very wet in all of northern California.  We've had 3 inches (7.6cm) of rain so far and nearly 3 more is expected before there is a break.  Granted the water is badly needed here but can't it be spread out some over a period of time?  Too much too soon and there is flooding all over the area already.
And so it goes.  When it rains, it pours.


  1. hope this change of weather doesn't put a halt on your next trip John; have you told Sinbad?

  2. I like the orange colors better. Thanks for showing .

  3. The kelp will be wet for a time I think. Still enjoying the rain?

  4. i just want it to keep coming to help fill your reservoirs - flooding means run-off (said by a pond-owner...) :)

  5. Very colorful when wet. Hope you get more rain.

  6. Oh no, sorry its flooding but glad for the rain.

    hang in there

  7. Moderation would be nice, wouldn't it?

  8. The kelp photos look like mangrove. I wonder if the plants are related...

  9. But at least you got some rain!
