Brigantine October 22, 2020 at 12:04PM
"The Brigantine is more than just home to some of San Diego’s finest seafood. It’s a place where locals and visitors alike come to share a lively atmosphere and authentic sense of community. The Morton family opened the first Brigantine on Shelter Island in 1969, with a vision that embraced the beach town lifestyle, a dedication to flavorful food, and a passion for friendly service."

Squirrel October 06, 2020 at 10:08PM
A friend said that she might have enjoyed seeing that. … So, I have come back and expanded on that event. Here is what I told her.
I think you might have enjoyed it quite a bit. And, there was an additional witness.
I was at the reflecting pool of the Botanical building in Balboa Park dressed in my black photographic uniform, with one of my cameras strapped to my body, with its strap looped through my arm and over my neck. The second camera was strapped tightly around the wrist of my right hand. Standing there, talking with a young man that had just sat on a bench next to where I was shooting. We were talking about photography.
Calliopes leash is a set of two leashes joined end to end to give her a little freedom to move around a little when we walk. The slack of most of the leash was wrapped around in my left hand to shorten her range and give me a little more control. But, my attention was not on Calliope and I had zero idea that the squirrel was even there.
She was sitting in front of me, at my feet, but things changed quickly. She moved very fast after that squirrel in a giant lunge at full speed. Snap! I felt the initial movement and instinctually tightened my arm to pull her back. But she is fast, and big, and the next thing I knew I was flying, suspended in the air like Superman. I was flying on my left side with my left arm outstretched, and my right arm cocked with its camera at my right side. While I was stretched out in the air, I consciously protected both cameras, also myself as I hit the ground fully across my entire body, twisting my hips a tiny amount to land on a little of my butt cushion instead of a bone. No damage was done to anything at all.
As I got up, the guy I was talking with said, “Wow! Did you ever play football? That was the most amazing fall I have ever seen.”
