Me and my kiddo

Wheee! That was so fun! I got the glasses well over six months ago. It was so cloudy this morning at home as I saw the pictures from elsewhere start flooding in of the start of the eclipse. Then I heard from a friend that she could see it from a town that's only twenty minutes away (and our max coverage was 45 minutes away). So, I tossed a hoodie over my PJs and headed out. It turned out I only needed to go 15 minutes away and there were tons of people pulled over on the side of the road (and a bunch of police cars too with officers happily watching). So... I got to see the best my area had too offer. I'll admit the NASA coverage was so cool that I'm seriously considering making 2024 a year to see totality... just fun!

(All sun pictures, except the obvious one, taken through the eclipse glasses.)

Chilling and enjoying!

There were easily fifty cars around me... this was the first clear spot coming down from the Santa Cruz mountains.


Fun... getting a wee bit enthralled!

Snazzy i-phone-forehead shot!

My child happily walking the dog when I got back... he put up with watching a few minutes of NASA's coverage.
What a fun experience! 2024... I'm thinking that I really want to experience totality!
