Before I set out on a walk today...

...here are some shots from yesterday's walks.

Yes, that's "walks" plural. Did about 5.5 miles yesterday in separate jaunts. One (the shorter) involves a steepish hill, which hurts the bejeebers out of my calf muscles, so it must be good for me.

I don't know what this plant is, but it's covering everything in the neighborhood right now. Sort of like kudzu with tiny flowers...



I do know what this is: it's an early-1950s Chevrolet, and since it has the rare extra windows at the rear of the cab, it's worth one heck of a lot of money...



A little something to worry about next time the Big One strikes...



Can't you tell that I'm terrified?

Looks like the flower is probably phlox. I have some in my front yard and it spreads like mad. Nice truck.

we used to have lots of ice plant that spread like that, too, but I'm sure you would have recognised that.

Tsunami zone? hmmmmm

The growth looks like lilac colored snow, but that's a northener's perspective :-)

To think that people just used these trucks up and then parked them to rust away...

Got hip waders for that zone?

What are you supposed to do about that advisory? It's like the ones that advertise mentally challenge children in the area, "slow children", how do you react?
