This morning Emily gave an update on the Eureka Waterfront design charrette dealing with public space and walkability in Eureka. We also looked at the Bay Trail and the fact that Arcata is already beginning paving the most northern end. We also looked at the timeline on the Eureka Waterfront Trail and looked down the road to the day when you will be able to ride continuously from the Park and Ride at Elk River Road all the way to Arcata.

It was a great day out in Blue Lake today for the 15th annual Buddy Brown Blues Festival. Hundreds came out to enjoy the music, good company and great barbecue from Blackberry Bramble. The weather was mild and there was lots of dancing. Thank you to everyone for coming out or listening to it live on KHUM.

It's hot. Some places (like Ferndale) are "hot" only if you've lived in Humboldt for a while. Other places (like Redway) are hot no matter what you're used to. Accordingly, we need a refreshing light cocktail, and tonight's offering fits the bill (except that it's technically not a cocktail).
Ingredients (makes 2 drinks)
- 2 cups cubed watermelon
- 1 tablespoon liquid honey
- 2 cupd pink sparkling wine
- ice cubes
- Place watermelon cubes and ice cubes in a blender, add honey; process until smooth.
- Add sparkling wine, stir gently.
- Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.
