My Fourth.

Yesterday did not turn out at all how I expected it to.

We got up early with the expectations for a day of climbing. The climbing was postponed, so I planned to go to kung fu. But THEN, the climbing was re-planned and I dropped plans for kung fu.

Then it started to rain.

So instead, we went to see TRANSFORMERS, the movie.

It was awesome. On Tuesday I read a review of the movie that did not speak well of the giant mechanical beast war, so I walked into the theater with low expectations. The reviewer cast the movie aside with comments on its high level of cheese and low levels of plot. Mr. Reviewer said that the action wasn’t good enough to hold the movie together.

Mr. Reviewer? to your review I say Nay. Nay! The movie was everything I could hope it to be. Giant fighting mechanical beasts? Missiles, helicopters, and military might? Optimus Prime? Yes.

It was Breathtaking.

(and, it was a matinee. three cheers for 6 dollar movies!)

After the movie we went over to Irene’s place for a BBQ. There was a great group of people there, and Irene got her tooth fixed. She had chipped it on Sunday at East Peak when she was defending our group from two fierce mountain lions.

Here are a couple more pictures from Sunday.

I think these pictures do a decent job at showing the impressive scale of the faces at East Peak. That’s Irene climbing and Pete belaying from the top.

    Wow those are some sweet pictures. They must have come from a wicked awesome camera. In fact it probably was the overwhelming awesomeness of the camera (and perhaps the creative genius of the owner) that allowed you to snap such great shots.

    Wow Pete! You may be right… and wouldn’t you know… these pictures were taken with YOUR camera!

    To hold such a tool of power was an honor beyond comparison.
