Around Byron’s Main Street – Project 365

Stopped at Downtown Byron this morning for a few photos of the old Main Street and the very busy intersection of Byron Highway and Camino Diablo. If it were not for the shortcut traffic this part of the town would be dead. Byron Hwy connects to Interstate 205 which connects to I-580 West and I-5 North, and via Mountain House Road to I-580 East and I-5 South.

17th Annual Delta Blues Festival – Project 365

If you liked Blues than Downtown Antioch was the place to be this Saturday. This free event is held each fall in the historic Rivertown district of Antioch. Although the the Antioch/San Joaquin Delta is by no means the most famous delta region associated with the blues, it is an area which has a large indigenous population of Blues fans, and as such has earned the right to hold a world class blues festival annually. Below is a short summary and a set of photos of each performance. Enjoy!

The Marine Layer – Project 365

This morning the Marine Layer is being pushed over the foothills. Looks like fall is starting early this year. BTW, a marine layer is an air mass which develops over the surface of a large body of water such as the ocean or large lake in the presence of a temperature inversion.

California Palm Trees – Project 365

Another hot day, which is also a PowerFlex and ‘Spare the Air‘ Day. In other words, don’t drive unless you have to and stay home without the air condition on until 7:00 to save power. The latter is rather difficult. I did decide to go out for a few minutes and walk a few yards to take photos of my neighborhood palm trees. It seems that most Californians – not born here – love to plant palm trees.

Cleaning the CCWD Water Canal – Project 365

Had to drop of my car for an oil change to get ready to go South for the Labour Day Weekend. So I spend some time along the nearby Delta de Anza Trail. After walking for about 1/2 mile, my way was blocked by some work crew and their equipment on the trail, not allowing anyone to pass by. Some walkers were not happy to have to turn back since there was no warning at the start of the trail that a portion was closed. Since I had to walk back anyways to pickup my car, I decided to take a few photos before doing so of the work crew trying to clean the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) Water Canal that runs parallel to the trail.
