TGIF

California has been burning for about a month now I think.  It's not as hot as it was last weekend, but still hot...and a bit muggy too. Humidity is up. The skies are always brown tinged...blue-brown at noon...brown-gold going home from work on the train...can't see the east or the west hills...and we were labeled "moderately unhealthy" on the morning news. Glad I don't live in the really unhealthy areas, like North Bay.

But in spite of the lousy air,  three staff  members went  on a  pre-planned event: a lunch time visit to The Farmer's Market in San Pedro Square. We didn't want to have to breathe any more of bad air than necessary, so we used our VTA Transit Passes and jumped on the first bus that came by.  We got to 1st and Santa Clara Streets on a 73, then jumped on a 22 and road it to Market Street and there we were...a half block from the Market.  It was fun...lots of free samples of delicious fruit and other edibles.

Then we split up and the other Admin and I jumped on a 65 on Santa Clara Street, which took us to 2nd Street and then we walked back to 1st, caught the 522 Express to 7th Street, walked one block back to San Fernando Street and our office and out of the bad air.  We brought back fresh produce too and some very nice Beeswax hand balm.

All in all a very pleasant adventure.  And we even had a staff meeting with beer and cheese and crackers before we went home. The boss returns on Monday.  Cheers!
