2017-05-10 Recovery Day 65

First the good news, I used the early morning and late afternoon today to finalize yesterday’s post. 2017-05-09 Recovery Day 64 – Final Version. If you have not read that posting, I strongly suggest you read it before
reading this one.

The bad news, the night was not as good as the last 10+, I was unable to fall asleep. It was not because of pain, but more at the start that my 9:00 PM medication did not arrive until 10:30 PM. I was still awake by 12:30 AM, at which time I asked for a some sleep medication. The answer was, since it was not ordered I could not get any sleep aid medication, not even a Tylenol PM. If I really wanted something they could call my doctor who could put in an order. By my calculations I would have the medication by the time it was time to get up.

Since I am confined to rest, staying home, today’s set is the view from the front of my house looking down Elkhorn Way. To get a better perspective and the impact of the six focal lengths of the wide-angle Sony DT 16-105mm lens, I took this set from the second floor of my home,

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!

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.

Somerville Townsite – Project 365

Today I visited Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. I was specially interested to take some photos of the Somerville Townsite, where during the mid 1850s–1900s the homes of this active coal mining community used to be. The Roseville Cemetery, last photo, is a popular place to visit. I plan to go there very soon.
