Monday....No Rain Yet

The rain never showed itself yesterday or today.  I just checked the MSN weather page and it still shows 90% chance of rain right now.  Hmmmm.  I just took my good friend, Annie, out for an evening walk and didn't feel a drop.  Not that I'm complaining, mind you.  We had enough rain last week to carry me until we get back to Tumwater on February 27th. 

No rain this morning meant we could get out for our walk at daybreak.  I brought the camera along this morning to try and get a pic of the sunrise.  Well, at least the colors in the sky toward the east.  We have some hills to the east of us and we can't really get a good view of a sunrise.  We're down a little low here being right at sea level.  But this is what I got anyway.....

After the walk and the rest of our usual routine, we decided to walk over to McDonald's and get some English muffins for breakfast.  We could have driven, but we could always use the extra exercise and we'll save some gas in the car this way.  Off we went, again bringing the camera along with us.

It's probably about 3/4 of a mile to McD's.  From Pismo Coast Village we have to walk up to Price Street, which is where you gain access to Hwy. 101 heading South.  There is a nice walking/biking path that runs alongside the highway.  Noisy, to be sure. 

From the pathway to McDonald's, we could look out over a mobile home/RV park and see the trees (way off in the distance) that mark the location of our RV park.

As we continue the walk to McD's, we are separated from the speeding cars by a Jersey Barrier.  Not my favorite part of the walk, but it is the only way to cross the ravine below. 

After we returned from our breakfast, we just spent a day hanging around the old homestead.  Bruce was working on our budget for 2010, making sure we had enough money for what we have planned,  and I was trying to catch up on photo albums for the "Grands".   I never seem to be able to catch up with that project.  :(

Around 5:20 I walked down to the observation tower to see if we'd be having a good sunset tonight.  Well, not great.  I took a couple of photos anyway just because I was there.  I'll keep trying for some better pics during our remaining 4 weeks here.

I hope you all had a great day, wherever you are.
Until next long for now!

I really liked your sunset pics too! Nice little tour today too and I'm glad it didn't rain for you!

Good pix of the morning and evening skies! Keep on the camera. We find taking pictures broadens our enjoying what we see, as we try for different interpretations of the same view. Often Suzy and I will take the same picture of the same object or view and come up with totally different perspectives. And she often gets a little better picture than mine. Hate it when that happens!
