Faced with the hot, dry and smoky weekend forecast for Boise, I fled to the west, trading that for warm, dry, and very, very windy in the Columbia River Gorge. It’s such a delicious reprieve that I’m extending my weekend for a day so I can sail on Monday, too; I’ll be back a-blogging on Tuesday. That’s me on the left; that’s Mt. Hood in the background…
Here's an odd news item from the Associated Press: IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Police in Idaho Falls have told a 34-year-old man to stop wearing his bunny suit in public because it was annoying his neighbors and frightening their children. A police report says officers responded Monday after a resident reported her son had been frightened by William Falkingham wearing a black bunny costume and hiding behind a tree pointing his finger at the boy like it was a gun. The officer spoke with other neighbors, who were also disturbed by Falkingham wearing the bunny suit. They also reported he occasionally wears a tutu with the costume. The report says Falkingham told officers he enjoys wearing the suit, but understood his neighbors' concerns.
Meanwhile, no bunny suit here, I'm sticking with my wetsuit and enjoying the Gorge on my vacation this week. That's me on the right, with the yellow sail, sailing today at the Hatchery; on the far shore is the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River with its scenic waterfall down the cliffs.
