i kept thinking that it was lacking in structure. whenever this thought would enter my mind, i'd mentally reprimand myself. i'm pretty sure that imposing structure on a solstice parade that featured naked painted bicyclists, floats personifying the battle between sperm and birth control, and lots of other inner-hippie themes would be bad karma.
fremont was entirely too crowded. we thought about eating there, but gave up and bought some stuff at PCC and walked to gasworks. we were ultra-sneaky and drank large bottles of cider or beer from grocery bags. whether there are actually open container laws remains unknown.
watching the parade, hundreds of kites, police boats spraying water, seaplanes taking off and landing, i have a feeling that i may have picked up a little sun.
