An afternoon off

By | Thu November 15, 2018

The fires up north are causing horrible air quality in the Bay Area. Today got worse, so now it is unhealthy for anyone to be outdoors. Fortunately, I have a couple of air cleaners inside the house that are keeping the indoor air quality pretty good.

The smoke had me in a pretty sad mood, so I really needed a day where I could get outside and exercise. Yesterday afternoon I decided to escape the poor air quality and head over to the beach in Santa Cruz. I had heard that the forecast was for the wind to be coming from the ocean (a west wind – I think that is offshore), rather than the south east winds we have been getting. That change meant that the beach on Santa Cruz had good air quality.

I especially enjoyed watching the pelicans from the pier. It was hard to get a decent picture because it was into the sun, but here are the best of the ones I took:

Today I’m stuck indoors – hopefully that will translate to getting a bunch of work done!
