Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 55: Peace Protestors

Every weekend, two older gentlemen with long white beards station themselves on the corner of 15th & L on the edge of Capitol Park and hold signs for peace as they wave to passing motorists and pedestrians and cyclists, accompanied by the music on their portable boom box.

I don't know who these "peace dudes" are or what their story is, and I couldn't find any picture of them with any conceivable combination of search terms on Google Images.  I always enjoyed seeing them during my long runs on Sunday mornings, and since I haven't been running as often or as far, I've missed their presence.

This evening, when we went to the R Street Market Safeway for our weekly grocery shopping after meeting Mr. R M, the new baby boy of L and M, we saw the peace dudes sitting outside the Peet's Coffee that occupies a corner of the parking lot.  Kind of nice to see some iconic Sacramento characters outside their typical context!
