My Father’s Coloration Images Of Southern California In The 1940’s

舊金山另個特色在氣候,全年很少超過攝氏20度或低於攝氏10度,儘管是應該炎熱的夏季,依然只有十幾度,美國大文豪Mark Twain馬克吐溫對舊金山氣候的一句形容流傳最廣,The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer season I spent in San Francisco我所經歷最寒冷的冬天是在舊金山的夏天,非常誇飾的形容這裡氣候特質。事實上現在舊金山夏季的溫度相當涼爽,但一天中溫差很大,當地人說是four seasons in a day一天有四季,遊客需要爬坡走動時會感覺熱,但有風或入夜時又會感覺冷,為避免著涼感冒,最好上身短袖或薄長袖再穿長褲,然後帶件防風保暖的外套。舊金山夏季氣候幾乎不下雨,因為加州是屬於稀少的夏旱冬雨Mediterranean Climate地中海型氣候區,此時來旅遊的遊客絕少有失望而歸的,冬季從11月到3月是雨季較有機會下雨,比南加州冬季雨量顯得高許多,但相對美國其他區域降雨量就顯得少。舊金山也是有名的多霧城市,尤其是在夏季,當金門大橋的橋下濃霧瀰漫時,想像整座橋宛如飄浮在空中般的景象,這樣的美景又怎麼能叫人有辦法輕易忘記呢?舊金山的象徵是「心」,仔細想想這有很微妙的意思,事情的起源是1962å¹´Tony Bennett的一首歌I left my coronary heart in San Francisco我把心留在舊金山,深深的形容了舊金山的景色是如何動人,Excessive on a hill, it calls to me. To be the place little cable automobiles climb midway to the celebs. He nodded. Straightforward math advised me he was round twenty years old on April 26, 1937, the day Guernica was bombed. I wished to ask—oh so carefully—about his life, what it was prefer to be twenty during a civil warfare fairly than a school pupil traveling from across the ocean. I wondered if he had fought, and for which aspect. I wondered if he’d been to Guernica.

The SR-9336 highway from my strategic junction in Homestead for the primary 11 miles crosses farmland. There Crimson-shouldered Hawk, diminutive American Kestrel and gregarious Boat-tailed Grackle, the Florida equal of Jackdaw have been noticeable perched on overhead wires. Once inside the park boundary the identical flat terrain of Sawgrass prairie damaged up by stands of Slash Pine, with islands or hammocks” of hardwood woodland here and there, stretched as far as the eye may see on both facet. Lots of floor water was visible on the street side being farmed by numbers of Great and Snowy Egret, but this is certainly not typical of all years.

We’re done in the yard now, and honestly we might have left right here Friday, besides I was too exhausted to maneuver the boat, and we still had projects spread all over the boat. If I can get my act collectively we should always be capable to shove off tomorrow and head south to Hollywood, the place we will anchor. That can give us a chance to regroup, and take a look at the watermaker whereas we are still in putting distance of the Spectra man.

From Phoenix, we traveled a hundred twenty five miles west on I-10 by cactus and rock populated land. As we got here closer to Quartzsite, we noticed an increasing number of RVs heading in the same route till we lastly exited the interstate into city. There the streets have been dotted with RVs of each description. It is not uncommon to see million dollar Prevosts side by facet with 30 year previous Winnebagos. There were pickup campers, pop up tent trailers, bikes pulling little tent trailers and every thing in between together with do-it-yourself rigs. We turned left on Rt. 95 and headed in the direction of La Posa South, traveling by means of the primary occasion area of Quartzsite the place vendors had already arrange tents and populated the ramshakle buildings. A lot of their wares have been already set out: tenting tools, RV provides, tables of rocks, outdoor chairs, grills, garments, wind chimes, tables of housewares, meals distributors and used books.

Your proper it’s a beautiful part of the country. I agree in the event that they did not do it then who did. It seems logical to me that they could have traveled that far. Look how a lot of this country was first explored on foot or by canoe. If others may travel that approach why couldn’t the Vikings. So now you will have set me off on a new journey to study extra about them. I have many kinfolks that reside in Southeastern Oklahoma which have been there for the reason that Trail of Tears and after I called someone older then me they knew about and had seen the stones however stated there was once others that had been smaller which had been carried off by people or destroyed.

I bought right into a routine of recognizing a required or photogenic hen then doing a U-turn, parking on the other grass verge and seeing how close I could get. Little Blue Heron and Tricolored Heron (beneath, top) soon took their locations in the much desired celebration of Florida wading birds presented here, along with more White Ibis (backside, left). Most of the time the birds co-operated, the exception being unrelated Belted Kingfisher that throughout this journey would always see me coming and fly off. It took till my return drive to Miami Worldwide Airport on twenty sixth to secure the image at bottom right.
