that it was warm and dry enough for a nice long (for me)  scooter ride.  Temps in the mid to upper 70’s, light breeze.  I was headed to the drug store, and I went by way of the Stevens Creek trail, which is a bit of a long way around. 
 But much prettier, and much safer, since I avoid crossing all the freeway entries and exits.

I wasn’t alone.  Lots of bicyclists, a skateboarder, and a couple of hikers.  Saw a tiny, tiny hummingbird, but not for long as it flitted away out of my vision.  I have never before seen Stevens Creek with so much rushing water!  So often in dry weather the creek is, too.  The drought here has been proclaimed OVER, and the rain that the storms dumped in the mountains is now gushing down toward the bay.

You may remember my posting about last September about the bridge over Stevens Creek on El Camino Real that was dangerously broken (See OBSTACLES)  Well, it has now been replaced with a new bridge, and I certainly feel safer crossing that.

These contractors are installing the steel pillars in concrete to stop vehicles from parking on the pavement outside a Sports Bar downtown. They are now in the process of cleaning up at the end of the day and anxious to go home.
How long do you think it'll be before they realize where they parked their truck?


  1. Hope you get a lot of use out of that new bridge!

  2. Oh. My. Gosh. is what I said quite out loud when I saw that picture. Let's hope at least one of those wasn't actually... too much to hope for... well oops.

    Meantime, I love that you got to get out and about and see a beautiful day out there!

  3. So much for quality control!
