El Morro and The Big Fire

El Morro is one of the big forts near us where we go lots of times to run around with the dogs. On Friday morning there was a big fire at a refinery across the bay. El Morro offered a spectacular view of this terrible fire. We live very close and we could see the horrible huge cloud of smoke but it wasn't until we were at the grounds of the fort that we saw the flames. They were HUGE!
This was what we could see from our roof deck...

And this was the view from El Morro....

There were lots of people just hanging around watching the fire but we decided after a few photos, it was time to get away from everyone and go for our stroll. Lilly had to stop and take one last look before we got down to the business of FUN!

So we headed up the hill. Roxy and her Dad got way ahead of Lilly and me. The grass was getting tall and very pretty.

Geez Mom, would ya hurry up!

Lilly kept running up towards Roxy and than back towards me. Silly girl, she confuses herself!

Aside from the big cloud hanging over us, we had a great time running around. I took some more shots of the clouds and smoke which luckily wasn't blowing in our direction, but was really interesting looking.

Luckily no one was injured in the fire and they have since put it out.

Thanks to Lindsay and Life with Big Dogs blog for naming us Blog of the week. They always have interesting stuff going on over there!


  1. Even though the clouds are unpleasant, they sure are pretty!

  2. Oh my goodness, what HUGE smoke clouds!!! Am glad no one was hurt in the fire.

    Loved the pictures of Lilly running back and forth! :-)

    (By the way, we haven't had any Malware thing pop up when we visit at all!)

  3. Just ran across your blog. Have not been to El Morro in many, many years, but what a beautiful area. I remember it in pre-Hurricane Hugo days when all of the Palm Trees lined the walks - and then after Hugo, they were all gone.

    What a massive fire!
