observation tower

This is the inside of the southern-most submarine observation tower at Cape Henlopen State Park. I understand there are 7 towers in the park, one has been restored and can be toured, just not at 5AM. The bottom of the door was rotted on this one, so I climbed in.  I have a bunch from the outside at sunrise, I’ll be posting one of them soon.

Note the bands of orange light between the openings; it is from the rising sun shining through the openings over my head.

bright and early

On vacation this week, I finally got motivated to get up at 5:30 so I could catch a sunrise.  It was nice, not spectacular from a photographic perspective, but it was peaceful.  Here’s a not-too-spectacular wave shot with a little sunglare/starburst thing going on.

Here’s my faithful ride; note the tripod bungie-corded to the back.  I’m comfortable enough with my manhood to ride a pink bike.  It sure beats walking.  Yesterday, I rode it ~10 miles through Cape Henlopen State park, a pretty special little corner of the earth.

house by the pond

I took this at Bowman’s Wildflower Preserve, it’s a nice little waterfall that feeds the pond off Presidential Drive.  A contribution to Weekend Reflections #251.  I will be taking a few days off, not sure how much I’ll be posting or visiting.

I saw this at a local auto parts store, it’s a plastic device designed to hold french fry containers from fast food establishments.

Really??!! You need a holder for your french fries?
