Brief Stop

I didn’t think I was going to get any photos this weekend, but I managed to pay a short visit to the Kewalo Basin area.

Missed bus, so decided to walk down the hill rather than wait for an hour.

No Refuge Today

Falls of Clyde has become my Hotel California it seems.

“You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.”

I am trying to do what I can in this time of crisis, but it really sucks that it feels like I am back on the board.

I was feeling weird and stressed out about things and I had to get away from the computer and answering emails. Visiting the harbor is usually healing. Not today. As much as I tried to ignore her as I stood on the pier by Gordon Biersch, she was there over my shoulder…calling me.

I wish I didn’t care, but that would be like cutting my heart out.

Anyway, I have photos, as usual.

Work on Pier 15 has begun in earnest:
