One of my favorite pastimes is asking people on the street if I can take their picture.  Most say yes.

These are the images of summer which is nearly at its end.  People are passionate about these activities, or at a minimum they were looking for a bit of relaxation at the beach.  I don’t know how anyone could stand that cold water without a wetsuit.  Most of the photos are from Ocean Beach in San Diego with a few from “La Joya” up the coast.

On Friday SCOTUS ruled gays may marry and their marriages must be recognized by all states.  Saturday was gay pride day in Houston so you can imagine the mood.  This year it was held downtown with a festival outside city hall and the parade at night downtown.  The photographs I will be publishing were taken at the festival.  Swimming in the reflecting pool in front of city hall is prohibited.  At first the police chased folks out of the pool, but eventually they gave up.  Remember, it is very hot and humid here in the summer.

I don’t have a building permit yet, but now have an appraisal high enough to get the project permitted.

Demolition is complete.  The place looks like a war zone.  Monday they will spray fungicide.  The house has dried out, and it is odor free.  Getting to this stage cost about $10,000.  I don’t have an estimate of insurance recovery yet, and a building permit is at least 4 weeks away.

The weekend has been difficult.  It’s another two days with no progress.  Air conditioning is running at 70F/21C to dry out the place.  There are three dehumidifiers running as well.  Last night was the first time I went out in the evening since returning from Amsterdam.  I must have PTSD.
