Man arrested on warrant while sunbathing in the nude
SANTA CRUZ — A local man was arrested on an outstanding warrant Sunday while sunbathing nude at It’s Beach.
Kurtis Dapont, 45, a homeless man, was arrested and released Sunday after someone told police they saw him lying naked on It’s Beach near the Santa Cruz lighthouse. There is no law against being naked in public in Santa Cruz.
…Dapont’s arrest this weekend was one of three cases of public nudity in Santa Cruz County. Two other men were taken to the county’s mental health clinic after they were found naked. One was found standing on Highway 9, screaming about aliens.
…The Sentinel incorrectly reported the nudity incidents on Page A3 Tuesday. Contrary to reports, Dapont was not playing a ukulele or acting in a disturbing fashion.

See? Lemons!

2 lemons

We’ve got a lemon tree in the back yard, and it used to be pretty nasty. When we first moved in, the tree was full of bugs, and some of the leaves and fruit were covered in black fungal crud. Every couple days, a skinless lemon — otherwise perfectly intact — would land on the deck like some kind of warning from the mob.

After a little pruning, the tree is now thriving and producing plenty of juicy lemons. It also yields the occasional freak, in which not all sections could agree on where the skin should go. I wanted to try out some close-ups on my new (but very used) Mamiya TLR, so I decided to give the current freak lemon crop a moment in the spotlight.
