It Was A Rainbow Kind of A Day

Today I saw a rainbow on my way to work.
It was the most remarkable rainbow I've ever seen.
Not because of its size, or the colors, or even its shape. All of that was pretty usual.
What was unique about this rainbow was that I could see the end of it!
The rainbow went straight down from the sky onto Anderson Marsh.
And I could see where it touched the ground.
Of course there was no pot of gold, but I felt pretty lucky.
And my day turned out to have plenty of luck.
I found a flash drive I thought I'd lost.
The state gave me and extra hundred dollars on my refund.
Jorge got me a ticket to go see Sugarland on Friday.
I don't have to give up Miley for good.
And I got to have bacon for dinner.

And for the record, that picture is not of the rainbow I saw today, but of a double rainbow I could see off of Siegler Canyon Road in February.

A San Francisco Memory

Instant calm
Deep breaths of salty sea air
Ocean breeze turning my hair into a swirling Medusa
Toes chilled by the water
Feet massaged by the sand
Seemingly endless steps to spectacular views
Countless possibilities for adventure
And I love it

American River Bike Trail Walk

Last weekend Megan and I went for a lovely walk on the bike trail near Red Bridge in old Fair Oaks. The first thing we saw was the roosters. They've been there for ages. Some of them ran away from the camera, but a few decided to model for me. :) Once we got on the trail we saw a lot of different wildlife. We saw a snake, baby squirrels, butterflies, birds, and lizards. And, because we've had such a rainy spring, the vegetation was lush and plentiful.
