Sunset in San Diego on December 31, 2021 The last sunset of 2021. Photo taken at 4:53PM about 45 miles north of San Diego looking west toward the Pacific Ocean which is just over the hills.
A week of rain, 3 inches of cold mud and slop. The ducks couldn't be happier.

Summer took a final bow in late November and quickly exited stage left. Now It's raining & temps are 40° cooler. Time for the first crackling fire of the year.

The greenhouse is empty in summer but in fall all the tender plants migrate back to it. It's dirty, sad now, but this weekend it'll be clean and in full leaf.

I am continuously fermenting the hot peppers, adding fresh peppers every week, and pulling half after 4 week's time to turn into hot sauce. This is round 1.
The last sunset of the summer of 2021 right at twilight. That orange glow is the sun sinking into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Oceanside, CA
Three months ago they were just yellow puffs. Now summer's gone, mom's back with her flock. and they're big ducks living life on their own (but still together).
