Texas Sunset

As we sat down for dinner to wrap up our Big Bend adventure, we were treated to a really beautiful sunset.

End of Day 3

This was a pretty easy travel day and it ended with an amazing sunset over the Pacific Ocean, seen from our motel room balcony, in Seaside, California.

Denver Golf Day 1

Today we played two rounds at Legacy Ridge in the Denver suburb of Westminster. It’s a very nice municipal course with ample fairways and huge greens and at $44/round a real bargain. The Arthur Hills design offered an excellent variety of holes with interesting doglegs that blend beautifully into the natural topography (I love Hills’ designs). I shot 87 during the morning round but stumbled to 94 in the afternoon thanks to a 9 on one hole. Still a very nice day in spite of an aching tooth.

More Hot Weather

The National Weather Service-Seattle reported a high of 95 degrees today, tying the day’s record.  I see that it was 91 in Miami, FL. So far the average high in July is 72.5 degrees, three degrees more than the July record set in 1941. I notice, too, that we’ve had 0.2 inches of rain since May 15, and 0.18 of that fell in one day. Here’s what an unwatered section of our yard looks like:  dried_ground_0899
At least with the crumby air quality we get some nice sunsets:

Bandon Beach

The drive from North Bend to Bandon was an odd one. It was nearly 80 degrees when I left but I drove through rain, bright sun, and overcast. It’s only in the 60s in Bandon and very cloudy. Even in the nine o’clock fog, Bandon Beach is eerily lovely.
