Returning Home

“Over Long Beach” California, 2021

Tonight we flew home. While leaving LAX, the plane made its U-turn around Palos Verdes and we got to see all the cargo ships hanging out off the coast. I guess this is part of the supply-chain issue. At any rate, the ships added to the dazzling lights that I always enjoy. 😀

I hope you had a nice day!

Koa and I are masked up and traveling to California for the weekend. I’m taking him to a front ensemble (band) camp, and then visiting my family. Looking forward to some good food and mahjong! 😀🀄

I dropped Mariko off at the airport today. She’s got her vaccination + booster so I’m not too worried about her traveling on the plane. I guess things are getting back to “normal”?

“Editing Video” Cedar Park, 2021

I finally got around to finishing our Arches National Park video. It’s fun to learn video editing!

I’d appreciate it if you gave it a watch if you have time:

I hope you had a great day! またね~

Morning Ride at Lake Somerville State Park

“Mango at the Lake” Lake Somerville, 2021

We woke up early to catch the sunrise, but heavy cloud-cover prevented us from seeing it rise above Lake Somerville. However, when it finally appeared a bit higher in the sky, it was beautiful!

“Sun Rays” Lake Somerville, 2021

My friend Také and I went for a short bike ride around the camp area on the hike and bike trails and saw a bunch of deer, rode through numerous spiderwebs, and worked up a good appetite for breakfast later on. I let him ride Mango, which is has front suspension, trigger-shifters, and a more upright riding position, while I rode Rossa which has no suspension, has a more aggressive position, and friction shifters.

“Rossa and Mango” Lake Somerville, 2021

It was so much fun, but I blew it and forgot to bring the GoPro for the ride! 😒 Man, I suck! Also, Rossa had a flat front tire when we got back to camp. Double-bummer.

But the ride was awesome so it’s all good!
