Today we decided to chuck the normal house and yard keeping that we do on Sunday and instead went for a peaceful hike in the redwoods. We had the trail completely to ourselves, and it was so relaxing and a perfect day for recovery. It seemed it was a day for noticing details. Such as we saw that the clover in the forest was purple on the underneath side. I had never noticed that before and I began wondering if all clover was like that. Then we noticed another plant that looked like a weed, and it too was purple on the underside. So then we wondered, coincidence, or is there something in the soil that causes the plants to mutate here? We also noticed that the clover looked green when viewed from above, purple when the leaves fell upside down on the ground, but red when the light streamed through them. Very interesting. (my theory, the green top layer absorbs the blue and green light, leaving only the red, which the purple underside layer allows to pass.)
After our hike, we took the scenic way over to Trinidad. We had never been there before so we just drove around a bit to explore and then found the Seascape Restaurant for dinner. Steak and Prawns for me, and the vegetables were peas covered in butter and almonds. Clam chowder and garlic bread to start, it just doesn’t get better than that. Except that I had no room for dessert.
But when we got home, we found Linda sitting in our driveway. With the earlier events this weekend I forgot she was stopping by. She provided little pecan pie desserts, and by then I had room for them, and we traded our left over steak and fettucini, so everyone was happy.
Finished the evening showing Linda I had clear air superiority over her on the antique Atari game console.
