Tonight while waiting for the ferry, the sunset over the sound was amazing.

I had never been up to the relatively close greenway trails and they were a wonderful surprise — 6-8 miles of various loops and point-to-point destinations, all shady and not too extremely hilly, with so many birds and so much wildlife it felt like I was taping a nature sounds CD. Here are some photos from the expedition:
The trails take off from Buck Lake, a picturesque, peaceful small lake surrounded by iris and cat tails.
Zach took this Friday morning from the Bainbridge ferry as it exited Eagle Harbor – all photos and panorama stitching work are his. As always, click for larger versions.
The news has been so grim lately, I think it’s time for an amusing diversion. What could be more entertaining than embarrassing teen & childhood pictures? I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

I dare you!
One of my projects this holiday has been going through family photo archives with my mom and sister. My son Zach and I are digitizing them for distribution and archiving purposes.
One of the most intriguing sets of photos was a slide carousel taken by my dad, Gerald Sisco, when he was stationed in Vietnam in 1969 as an army signal corps officer. I know he was stationed at Cam Ranh Bay; I also know he spent time at one or more forward locations. Beyond that, I don’t know much about these images that are a part of my family (and military) history.
Click on the image below to go to the complete Flickr photoset – the image quality is a little uneven as some of the slides were faded, color-distorted and scratched.
I find it intriguing that these aerial images could potentially be the type of materials that the military would not want made available to opposing forces. In 1969, there was no Internet and with reasonable precautions these photos would not fall into the wrong hands. Today, such amateur photography is the type of data that triggered the 2005 DOD crackdown on military blogging & online social networking.
