Happy Memorial Day ’06
It’s looking like it’ll be a sunny Summertime.
Things are looking up,
Blue skys, nothing but blue skys, blue skys from now on . . .
Two serene photos in honor of all Airmen, Marines, Soldiers, Sailors, Merchant Seamen and all the ships at sea.
Semper Paratus!
Semper Fi!

Memorial Day always reminds us of the Lost Coast in Northern Cal.
Hiking southward, wind always at your back (from the north), Pacific on your right, ocean cliffs on your left. It’s a committment to get through the “lost” section of the trail since it’s a 2 or 3 day trek with a point of no return.
This is the best time of year to go since you can still catch some Sierra Mountain snow melt for fresh water. Filter! Filter! It’s a long way from High Sierra to sea level.
And here & now? The water is warmer on this side of the continent. Much more accessible.
