Storm Clouds


Storm Clouds - Marin County  2020

August 16, 2020. During the night there had been some light rain, along with flashes of lightning and (sometimes very loud) thunder.

When it was light enough it became apparent that impressive clouds were still overhead. Mike headed out to the San Geronimo Valley with an Olympus camera and an iPhone 7 Plus to take advantage of the shade provided by the overcast sky. First, yesterday's cow stop, then on to the Willis Evans trail area.

Flowers - Berkeley  2020

For the past few months Mike has been quite constrained in his travels. No trip to Japan, and no camping outings. Places he's been to: Marin County and Berkeley.

These nice looking flowers seen at Margaret and Jim's house in Berkeley.

M & G


M&G (Fairfax) - Marin County  2020

Kind of an impulse stop. It was close to lunch time, so we pulled into M&G's parking lot and got takeout! Burgers 'n fries, of course. And easy enough to take home without the food getting cold. It was good!

Costco Return - Marin County  2020

Latte - Marin County  2020

This was our first visit to Costco in quite a while. Mainly to return a defective outdoor heater . . . once that was done we ventured inside and bought some heavy duty extension cords, then left.

Mike's last latte was had on March 10 . . . this purchase on August 19 at a nearby Starbucks broke the months long latte-free spell.
