“Old Air Boats Never Die…”


20140311_5195niktmweb…they just get recycled into boats for clam farming. I made this exposure this morning on the homeward leg of my bicycle ride. I go by here every day, but this morning the light was just a bit more interesting then usual, so I decided to stop. Once I did that and ‘looked’ I was also taken by the symbolism evident in this view. The cedar, oak and palm trees in the background are a good representation of the area’s vegetation. The Blue Desert Cafe  is a throw-back to the days when Outside Magazine referred to the town as the place where ‘it takes two hours to watch 60 Minutes. It is also a reminder that we don’t have a single chain restaurant in town. The Blue Desert itself was recycled from a family home into the restaurant. – If you look closely at my previous post, you will see that this is just down the road from where I took the bird-dog photo.
