I cannot tell a lie. A draft of what was to be today's post is saved on the laptop, and gosh, I almost finished it. Honest. But here's the thing. Hurrican Earl is threatening; we may or may not be in for a bad blow by the end of this week and sunsets preceding a storm are often spectacular. So rather than writing, it seemed prudent to grab the camera and drive one town over to the bay where there are clear west views. When a thundering pack of Harley riders stopped beside us and took out their camera phones, we figured we'd made the right decision.
It didn't hurt that there was ice cream involved too.
