Fire in the sky

All of these are somewhere on the CA Delta...

This photo was taken on Mildred Island on the same trip as my avatar photo.



My friend and I were out in our dinghies with the Admirals as the sun began to set.* I had been teasing him all week because he hadn't had a chance to wash his boat before our week on the water and I had mine waxed.* When we looked back at the boats, this is what we saw...



Of course, I had to rib him about how he should have waxed his boat!* From the dinghies, we couldn't figure out why his boat was so gray while mine glowed red.* When we got back to the boats, we found that there was a single, solitary bush or tree on the levee casting a shadow across his boat!* 20 feet left or right, he would have been in the light!

Fire in the sky

Not taken on the boat, but fire in the sky it is. It was the beginning of a thunderstorm in Memphis last spring

OK, I am a little color challenged.

RE: Fire in the sky

This Sunset Image was taken late Summer returning to our Slip in Toms River NJ.

The sky lit up so bright I had to grab my camera.

That's a great shot, Eric. I would think it would be a very difficult place to leave once one was there and established. Sure looks like it beats Seattle.....

RE: Fire in the sky

Walt, Marin and all,

We miss peaceful Washington. The Maple trees, grassy farm fields, beaches w real sand, peaceful farm valleys, much longer summers w much less frequent rain, roads that do'nt have sand and gravel all over them half the year, far less wind, restaurants and stores of course and the ability get in our car and go places other than Craig Alaska. The ability to seek and find friends that are more like us. One of the reasons I'm on TF so much is that you guys are too big of a chunk of my social life. Almost nobody here is interested in boats and boating the way we are. Life revolves around fishing and hunting. Boats are just tools to get fish. Also going to California or Montana is so easy from Wash and my old friend Canada is close and readily accessible. We'll be close to much more family etc*etc. My cousin Ann from California summed it up smartly when we first got here * "but what do you doooooo?"

We'll miss SEA very much when we're gone. Ther's no place like it. I was born in the territory of Alaska and its part of me but living there has run it's course. I thought Chris wanted to stay here more than me so I stopped talk'in about moving but she kept it up. Had a talk or 10 and decided to come home.

Now I've kinda smashed my foot and am limping around so this first leg of the move will be difficult but I think we'll get er done.

Eric

RE: Fire in the sky

Eric:

Great explanation on your reasons for leaving Thorne Bay. All the things you noted are important to me as well.

IMHO, Alaskan small towns are for the younger crowd. Beautiful as they are, living close to a larger city is more stimulating.

I've often wondered why you settled in Thorne Bay. You are interested in sooo many other subjects, it would seem to me that you & your wife would be bored to tears there.

I just got gack from spending 12 days at my home in Sedona, AZ. My wife loves it and the views are spectacular. I, however, am bored after just 3 days as there is absolutely nothing to do except look out the windows at the red rock formations. To comprehend that takes about 10 minutes (at the most) and then it's "what do we do now?")

Welcome back to civilization!

*She did! You're familiar with Dorian I then? We purchased her in 2009 and have been doing quite *a bit of updating since. She has great bones.

She was living in Maple Bay but moved to Campbell River in 2011.

Mark, it's hard to resist "the golden hour"! The first was taken at our marina(Anchor Cove, Anacortes, WA). The second picture is also close to home, on the dock at Coupeville, WA.
