We got up early this morning and drove up to Vasquez Rocks where we met up with my friend Robyn and we went for a nice hike. I could sure tell that I had not been hiking for a while because I was breathing hard, my calf muscles hurt and my feet were getting numb due to not being used to wearing my hiking boots for several months.
We hiked up onto the ridge south of the big rocks, doing almost one and three quarter miles. Robyn wanted us to follow her to her house so I would know exactly where she lived. She is just a mile or two northeast of the county park.
When we got home, we decided not to bother with breakfast that we’d just go for an early lunch. We headed over to Topper’s Pizza. Got there right after they opened so they were not crowded. I think they have the best pizza in our valley.
After we left there, we drove over to Sprouts so I could get a bottle of the Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. Stater Brothers carries it now, but they only have the small bottle and I like to get the big bottle.
We then headed over to Office Max. I’ve had a lot of people tell me that I should publish some photo books of my photography, but I thought I’d rather make calendars as I can do it myself and make a little extra money without committing to having several books printed that might not even sell. I was looking for a comb-binding machine so I could make the calendars at home. They didn’t have exactly what I wanted, so we headed over to Office Depot. Funny, they are basically the same store and they recently merged, so you would think they would have exactly the same things, but that’s not true. I found the binding machine I wanted and Keith is going to show me how to use it since he uses one where he works once in a while.
I’m thinking about making some with Hiker’s photographs and some with my landscapes and then see if maybe I can sell them to friends and on Facebook.
Got up to 96° here today.
