The desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) has roamed the California desert’s landscape for tens of thousands of years, escaping scorching temperatures in burrows deep underground.
The owners of this cat took it for a sail across the Salton Sea from the shores of the abandoned but not forgotten Bombay Beach marina earlier this week, a most unusual sight, to be sure.

If I had a cat, I would always keep a bowl of fresh water for him. A very big bowl.
It seems like just about everyone is posting photos of their cats online these days. Here’s a snap of my cat.

The dramatic Anaheim Convention Center, one of my favorite buildings in Orange County, was conceived and designed by Adrian Wilson & Associates in 1965, and built by Del E. Webb Corporation at a cost of $6.8 million. Visible under a layer of concrete are the 200-ton steel arches that peak at 112 feet above arena floor. The original configuration provided a total area of 375,000 square feet, with 100,000 square foot main hall.
Opened in July 1967, the domed building’s elliptical floor plan provided for up to 9,100-seats for performances (6,500 for circus or ice show, 7,800 for basketball, 8,500 for stage performance and 9,100 for boxing).
When opened, it was the fifth largest convention center in the U.S.
The original convention center project staff included Supt. M. D. Stevens; Mickey Brown, engineer; Woody Witaker, foreman; Tom Swann, assistant superintendent; Ed Konkol, office manager and Bob Sheer, project manager.
The Pacific Air Show held last weekend in Huntington Beach brought out an estimated 2 million spectators over the three-day event. Here are a few of our favorite photos.
