I had Thursday and Friday off of work, and yesterday I went to some of my favorite birding locations, Natural Bridges SB and Antonelli Pond.
I was pretty sure it was Monarch time, and I wasn't disappointed.

Reading cotton candy books
chocolate cake, dragons,
little battles ending in a puff of smoke
or the thump of a heavy tail
ribbons of thought
and velvet sense memory
embellish the architecture of your mind
to keep the story going
at a good clip.

Inspired by the fabulous Ms. Bitch Cakes, I decided to take my camera last Saturday and combine two of my hobbies into a photo bike tour.
I started at my house in Aptos and rode down through Cabrillo College and over to Park Ave, and then down into Capitola Village
Leaving the village, I returned via Park Avenue to the frontage road between New Brighton and Seacliff, and access the Porter-Sesnon open space, where I attempted my first real trail experience on the bike and thought I was going to eat it several times. Glad there was no one around to hear me yelping "Oh SH*T".
Then I dropped down to Seacliff and rode out to the cement ship
All in all, about a 2 hour tour, including photo time. I'm very proud of myself for venturing out in a new way. during this trip my chain came off three times because, well, I don't know how to ride a bike that well yet. So I had to fix that each time, which was a small adventure in itself.

by e.e. cummings
Spring is like a perhaps hand
(which comes carefully
out of Nowhere)arranging
a window,into which people look(while
arranging and changing placing
carefully there a strange
thing and a known thing here)and
changing everything carefully
spring is like a perhaps
Hand in a window
and fro moving New and
people stare carefully
moving a perhaps
fraction of flower here placing
an inch of air there)and
without breaking anything.

I took the above picture with my phone camera and the time stamp is... 9:15am! I was doing my regular walk down toward Rio Del Mar when a giant set started coming in. the waves were smashing completely over the cement ship and one extra huge one came right up to and almost over the guardrail of the pedestrian walkway. I actually stood there with my mouth open at the size of it.
I totally think it was part of the same set that wiped out these crazy people.
