Back to Friday’s lovely sunset. Saturday was a series of uninspiring daytime shots, because it was the sort of day most folks associate with summer at the beach; warm, no wind to speak of, a perfectly calm sea and not a cloud to be seen. Amazingly enough it was actually warmer right on the beach than a short distance inland. But I can’t show you what it looked like. I’d forgotten to charge the battery since the trip to Shasta (near the end of October) and, of course, I rarely remember to shut it off. To top it all off, I had taken the memory card out the previous night and forgotten to reinsert it. Normally, the camera would tell me the card was missing, so I blithely shot away, but with the battery missing, it apparently didn’t have the juice to warn me… or I might have inserted the spare battery and card. I don’t think any of us are missing much from that particular outing. Except the walk was pleasant.
