Sketching closer to home. So I guess that’s less travel.
The next time I sketch this view it’ll be different. This quaint little town I moved to (that my neighbors tell me was quainter before) will soon be replaced with the sound of heavy construction machinery echoing from the hills.

via Russian Hill
During my travels in San Francisco I climbed Russian Hill. I took these photos below there. Upon taking them I sat on a ledge of a planter that had a hedge in it before heading down again. While leaving I realized my day planner was gone. I then remembered I used it as a cushion on the ledge. Within an hour of realizing this my daughter received a message on her phone. On her phone the message and the accent indicated they were from Alabama. They said they found my planner on the ledge and hid it in the hedge where only I could find it. I found it the next day. I was not only thankful but also impressed with their integrity and resourcefulness. I still don’t know how they found my daughter’s phone number.

It’s photo time. Above are stormy seas I took around Christmas. It was kind of fun a little scary to watch. It’s one of my recent favorites.

I realized I hadn’t posted a photo for while. This is one of my latest favorites I took during my morning walk.

I went out early one morning this weekend for my walk. Earlier than my usual early. Before the sun had risen. When I got to the promenade there were a few cars. Another car drove up and three young girls got out. They were young. Young enough to make me wonder which one was old enough to drive? I also thought we must be the only people out. As they passed me they acted as guilty as heck…like they were hiding something. Shrug. One said “Hi!”, really just way to put on a face. She was the one with very long wavy hair. “Good morning”. They went down to the beach and I walked by. On my way back home I saw one of the group was sitting on the beach. The others were in the water. They were only a silhouette in the dark. Must have been cold. Skinny dipping?

I know I’ve mentioned this before…I have the most fun sketching people. This is the first time I’ve sketched people on the beach. It hadn’t crossed my mind before getting into I’d get as much attention (back). It was alright though.
