Earth Day 2017

The San Diego County sponsored cleanup projects this Earth Day are either in East County or South Bay, not in my ‘hood’ of Mission Bay or Tecolote.  Hence, this year I’ll cleanup my own little section of the earth at home in Bay Park

The deck has needed to be restained, which is an easy project with a big visual return.  Clearing the furniture off the deck and breaking out the power washer gets my motivation going to finish this project.  As the deck dries I picked up two gallons of Cabot Spanish Moss deck stain at Dixieline Lumber.

I’ll continue with the never ending project of weeding the vegetable garden and then mow the lawn to complete my Earth Day projects.

Sunday was EarthFair 2017 in Balboa Park, which always draws a crowd and a variety of interest groups.

Altho there are Vegan and Vegetarian groups present, the Food Court is serving up (expensive) dogs and burgers.

A couple of our local naturalist groups were recruiting new members.  I’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of running across the Hiking Bares a couple times on Coyote Creek.  It is not the nature I was there to find.

A do it yourself mural lined the walkway by the Prado, with live Polynesian entertainment.  Each weekend a different culture performs in the International Village.

This fella was a one-man didgeridoo band.  The music vibrated throughout the Prado.

 There were several electric cars on display but this Tesla Roadster captured the show.
The biggest single section contained the Cannabis booths, they also had the biggest stage.   All types of soaps, skin lotions, clothing, but no open sales of vaping supplies ... but the smell was unmistakable … at a family event.

Of course there was a parade, it would not have been right not to have one.

The Drummers Without Borders were my favorite.  What the kids lacked in talent they more than made up for with enthusiasm.

Pack Sand Sedona!  We have twisted trees too!

I’m sure these signs are meant for the current administration, but could extend to many in public positions.
