2018-05-28 Recovery Day 448

Health-wise things have turned around. Like yesterday I still had dizziness after getting up which I got under control with Meclizine, and like yesterday I played it safe by having toast and tea for breakfast. The good news, there was no shoulder, hip and bone pain. My wife joined me for my morning walk through our Sterling Hills Neighborhood. I enjoyed the walk, specially since I was pain free.

Another fine sunny and warm day. Health wise every thing is OK, no change in my morning routine, starting with a good breakfast, taking afterwards my morning medication and getting ready for my morning walk with Dean. The walk took a bit longer because of me taken many point and shoot photos. More about that in a separate blog entry sometime this week.

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.

CA HWY #4 Construction Update – Project 365

Time to do my monthly check up on the construction on CA State Highway 4. The work on both overpasses, A Street to the East and L Street to the West, is slowing progressing. That work was started rather late and is the reason for the bottlenecks, causing delays in the rush hour. I used my old trusted Minolta Maxxum AF 75–300mm lens. BTW, the third photo was taken from the western side of the bridge towards the East with the safety wire mesh in the foreground. Continue reading »
