Rainy Windy Day

Today was a pretty crummy day. It rained most of the morning and even after the showers stopped it remained pretty windy until well past sundown. As a result…we pretty much did nothing today. Connie worked and Neil worked on some planning for our time up in the Pacific Northwest. He had previously picked out a bunch of waterfalls, national parks, state parks, mountains, capes, and other cool stuff they want to see and placed all of them on a custom google map. Today he too our schedule with arrival in Seattle on June 28 after our time in British Columbia and picked out a total of 6 stops…five on coastal Washington and Oregon and the last inland a bit in northern California. Stopping at these areas takes us up to the end of August. We’re then heading east across northern Nevada and into Utah to visit another group of national parks and other areas there which will take us into early October at which point we’ll start heading east and south into Texas and then across Louisiana and the Gulf states to arrive back in Cedar Key for the last week in October and then down to Fort Myers on 1 Nov.

After that…we went over to the Tiki bar for a beer and then drove down to Island Pizzaria to get dinner…then it was time for TV. We’re watching Dual Survival on National  Geographic channel and I don’t know what Connie has picked out for the rest of the evening. 

After dinner we noticed that the skies had mostly cleared although the breeze is still up there…but Neil did get a couple decent photos of the sunset.

    Wish our day was that crummy! Looking forward to that possibility as well as seeing you, Neil and Connie in April.

      We are looking forward to rejoining you for wine/dinner/catching up as well. We’ve had a few more minor issues with our rig since we last talkedI’ll be sure to catch you up on all of them when we talk so you can double check your rig when you pick it up.

      It was a much breezier and cooler day than it looks in the pictureI’m going to try to run out this evening and get some bracketed exposures to combine together into a High Dymanic Range (HDR) photoHDR lets you much better approximate the brightness variation level that you eye can see in the final image. Digital cameras have much less dynamic range than your eye does which means a single image has both less highlight and shadow detail than your eye sees, HDR is a manipulation trick that gets (sort of ) around this limitation.
