S.S. Palo Alto

Stumbled upon a few cool videos of the damage to the cement ship this evening. I saw the ship the morning after the stern got upended. The waves that morning were still large and washing over the ship. It was a humbling sight.

I first saw the ship back in the late 80's. I even remember when you could walk on part of it. Since then I've walked RDM hundreds of times. Oddly, I never knew that seal lions hang out on it.

Surfin' Santa Cruz (Aptos actually)

We lost power for three days during the most recent storm. Multiple trees down, power poles toppled, the works. It was a bit of mess. We took the easy way out and simply checked into a hotel. Problem solved.

These guys, on the other hand, made the best of the situation.

Funny to see them doing this down at the beach that we regularly walk.

Well done, guys. Stupid, but well done.

Montreal Street Art

Street art is one of the things that I enjoy seeing all over the world. I enjoy the color and the creativity.

Here are a few examples from a trip to Montreal back in September 2016.
