Brisk late-afternoon photowalk, Downtown Scranton, January 2018
I saw the sun hitting the tops of the buildings and quickly ran outside for a brisk photowalk.

Earlier last week Eliza and I went to an invite-only wine release tasting event. Posh, I know. But we had a great time and look forward to doing it again. The sunset was lovely that evening – as it has been most of July as afternoon thunderstorms make way for calm colorful evenings.
9th Ave Pier, Belmar, New Jersey – July 2017
Earlier this month Eliza and I ate dinner at 9th Ave Pier in Belmar, New Jersey. It was an interesting experience. At 9th Ave Pier you find a seat yourself (despite the fact that the place was packed). This could be done by creating your own tables using objects you find around the pier, finding a few seats with other people at unfilled tables, or finding a way to sit at the bar by cozying up next to someone at one of the few bars.
It didn’t make for a bad experience necessarily, but I can imagine how some might be put off by this. And, it may be that this isn’t an issue except during holiday weekends when the place is busier than usual.
Overall it was a beautiful evening and I won’t forget our dinner there.

Yesterday fellow UAV pilot Jonathan Edwards and I hiked to the “top of the world” at the Dunmore Pine Barrens to get some exercise, see the sights, and fly a little.
I decided to hike this area because of local hiker, writer and blogger Jeff Mitchell’s blog post wherein he details the hike. He provides specific detail for parking and getting to the top which undoubtedly saved us a few minutes of spinning in circles. Here is a snippet of his post:
According to Google Earth, this place is called High Rocks. Layers of mist and slow moving clouds hung in the valleys below. The tops of the plateaus rose just above the mist. The sunrise cast the cliff in hues of amber and orange. I could see for about 20 miles across the Pocono plateau.
Mitchell hiked in the wee hours of the morning to catch first light or dawn time. Jon and I left the lot at around 4:30pm or so and hung out at the top until just after the sun dipped below the far horizon. My guess is that dawn is a completely difference experience on that ridge so I expect to give it another go in the future.
Yesterday’s weather was perfect for a hike. The round trip was about 6.2 miles (according to my iPhone) and I would say that just about anyone could make the trek. Just be very careful on the cliff.
