The rain of the winter season replenishes the earth in sonoma. Flooding and mudslides are a new normal as development contests with nature. Spring is not far away here.
Today at Point Reyes, we were witness to a most extraordinary event. We had gone to see the Elephant Seals. Then by the side of the road a wolf which was stalking a herd of deer had the tables turned. The deer attacked the wolf; chasing it away from the herd. The standoff lasted a while; long enough for me to take these photographs.
We often think of deer like bambi. Here was proof that it is not the case.
THE SALTON SEA is reputedly 230 feet below sea level. Death valley is 279 feet below sea level. It is a curious place that shares some quirks with Mono lake. It was created in 1907 when the Colorado river overflowed; and dying a slow death ever since. Still a resting place for many migrating birds.
This is a part of Los Angeles, a few square blocks that has a population of homeless nearly the size of Newport. In a city that promises to make you perfect.
Thanksgiving is not a religious holiday, yet is about as close as it can be to being one. According to the news more families re-unite than for Christmas.

Each time I have visited Los Angeles I have walked along Hollywood blvd. I see every sort of person there. Young people with all there hopes pinned on being discovered in Hollywood. There is so much talent there and so many talented people who never get “discovered”.
This is in response to those who asked:”Who are you?” It is a least a dimension.Boats have always been a part of my life. Naturally interwoven with the story of Newport.
