Cliff and Emily talk with Miles Slattery, City of Eureka Parks and Recreation director about the Eureka Waterfront trail. Where we are, the next three phases of the trail and potential funding that could complete the trail around the city by 2016. They will find out about the funding in August. Wish them (and us) luck! We also discussed all phases of the Bay Trail, and slough crossing options.
Also the County of Humboldt has put out a comprehensive booklet about the Bay Trail and it's phases. Click on the banner above to see the PDF.

In my particular world, it's almost always vodka time. Our cocktail tonight features vodka, for sure, but a different kind of time. The flavors of lemonade and thyme go together very nicely in this refreshing summertime cocktail. Before you can make the finished product, you have to make thyme-infused simple syrup which, when combined with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, produces a delicious elixir.
- 2 cups sugar
- 12 sprigs fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
- 4 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice, about 24 lemons
- 2 cups vodka
In a small saucepan, combine 2 cups water with the sugar and thyme; bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat; let cool to room temperature.
Pour mixture through a fine sieve into a large glass measuring cup; discard thyme. You should have 2 cups syrup. Cover with plastic; chill.
In a large serving pitcher, stir together lemon juice, vodka, and chilled syrup; garnish with thyme. Divide evenly among eight tumblers filled with ice; serve immediately.

This morning I spoke with Dave Hayse of the Humboldt Trails Council about progress on the Lacks Creek Trail project. We also talked about the McKay Tract and the first phase of the McKay Community Forest. This weekend at the Humboldt Made Fair at Redwood Acres will be a great place to find out more. The Bay Trail and Hammond Trail were also on the agenda.

New York Times wrote a fantastic piece about whether or not this was a good idea:
“We wanted to share with new audience members the power of live symphonic experience,” Mr. Morlot said. While the young Sir Mix-A-Lot fans may not be likely to become regular subscribers or even necessarily to return to the concert hall any time soon, he said, he hopes to lure them back later in life, when they have more time and money. “Maybe they’ll be less intimidated about making that journey,” he said.
