         "Even the most beautiful days eventually have their sunsets."   – Unknown Author

 

The clear, hot, cloudless and windless days of July have started to shift as we move into August. Day time temperatures have started topping out in the low 90s vs low 100s, our flat windless waters have taken on some ripples as winds have picked up helping to break up some of the nasty algae blooms. The cloudless days and nights of July were great for star watching but our wonderful Delta sunsets were dull at best. With increased winds bringing some scattered clouds along with a smoky haze from the summer fires our wonderful Delta sunsets have started to return.

      A young California Sea Lion holding up the barefooters. While more often seen in the winter it's less common for these guys  to swim up from San Francisco Bay in the summer. They come for the fish.

        “A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
             John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
