A Beautiful Day at the Harbor

It's a pleasure to live in a waterfront community where a typical walk includes scenes such as these.

 The weather today was perfect.  The Dot was visiting and the harbor was calling our name.
I love this shot.  You can see two kayaks moving west, two boats moving east and, in the back, against the hills, you can just make out the train going by.  People were all over the pier fishing.
 Along with one seal.
There were a lot of dogs walking their owners.
We saw this cute little booth called Benicia Bait and Tackle.  It's just a teeny trailer than expands.  A woman was in there doing a pretty steady business selling tackle, soda and snacks.
Here's a great view looking back towards Sailor Jacks, the waterside restaurant named for Jack London who used to spend quite a bit of time in our little city.  There's The Dot and The Hub on the right.  The tide was high.  When the tide is low, this is all beach.
A couple of days ago when we were walking, we noticed that the city has hired a group to put twinkly lights along the trees on 1st Street.  An electrician was stringing the power source across the tree tops, and the light crew was right behind, winding the lights up the trunks and through the branches.  It's going to be a pretty sight this Holiday Season!
