Took a side trip to Battle Rock the other day...........the sky was fantastic. Big fluffy clouds.......otherwise known as 'chance of rain'. I edited one in black and white. It makes Humbug look like it's an erupting volcano, doesn't it??

This second one is just a different effect......closer and in color. In case you hadn't noticed. 8-)

Norm and I received the nicest surprise the other day in the mail. A friend of mine from high school was taking a guided tour over the Memorial Day weekend to the 'mothball fleet' down in Suisun Bay in California. He made a great CD of his day and tour and sent it to us. This area in Contra Costa County, was one of our old 'stomping grounds' when we had a nifty little cabin cruiser. We'd go around that area about every weekend for years. Listen to the creaks and groans of these beautiful old ships while fishing for sturgeon and catching lots of mudfish instead. The mothball fleet is now home for the USS Iowa, aka The Big Stick.
I say home, but it's awaiting donation as a not-for-profit museum. It has a long and illustrious history, from WW II through the Korean War and beyond until 2006...... that you can look up on Wikipedia, if interested. It was such a nice thing to do, David......and we thank you. I can only imagine how special that tour was visiting over Memorial Day weekend.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and are ready to GO for the new week, full of steam and gusto!!
