Alleyway Wanderings

   Right now I am listening to Nina Simone because yesterday I watched both 'Before Sunrise' and 'Before Sunset.'  At the very end of 'Before Sunset' (Spoiler!), Jesse and Celine have a conversation about Nina Simone while listening to her and it made me want to listen to her too.  I have been wanting to watch both of the 'Before' movies for a while now, so I am glad I finally did. They live up to the hype too. Both movies are beautiful, refreshing love stories. I am excited to see the newest one now.
   Last time I was downtown I wandered through some of the alleyway's and took photo's. Alleyways are visually interesting, but often times they are stinky!













    I have seen two interesting things recently:

1. An adorable sea otter! He popped up from the murky blue water, and we locked eyes. I tried to convey with my stare the message of 'I'm a nice person, come closer little otter friend!" He was not convinced. He flared his big nose so his nostrils made two O's and let out a deep breath. Salty water dripped from his scruffy, whiskered face. And it all happened so quickly because the next thing I knew, he was diving back underneath the water.

2. A clown waiting for the bus. David and I were going to get lunch when we drove past the bus stop and saw the clown! He had curly blue hair, a brightly colored jump suit, big red shoes, a white painted face and a red nose! He was fully committed to his clown attire. David said "I wish we were on that bus!" and I wished the same thing. Those lucky bus riders were in for a treat!
