I think it was April 1980 when I went along with my parents, my sister, and my niece and nephew to visit the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Sadly, I barely paid any attention to the other historic ships because I was much too enthralled by the Star of India; I shared my photos from that day in October 2018 […]
During Christmas and summertime school breaks back in the early 1980s, I got pretty used to spending roughly eight hours on the road, driving to Southern California in my parents’ VW camper to visit my eldest sister’s family. Once there, we usually stayed for about a week and found time to visit various local attractions — Disneyland, the San Diego […]
The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Catching People Unaware.
I was going to start off this week with pictures from the early 1980s but decided instead to go further back in time — to the 1950s! I’m not sure how this particular group of images relate to each other, but they were in a bunch and are from about the same time frame. I’ve never visited Shasta Dam, but […]
Since we’re now under lockdown and the pandemic is hitting California very hard right now, it may be quite awhile before I get back to the Sonoma coast. That’s one reason why these images mean so much to me; they’re the last group of photos I shot at Gerstle Cove last month.
I haven’t participated in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for awhile, but I’ve missed it a lot, so here’s my entry for this week’s challenge: Leaves and Trees.
More images from the south end of Gerstle Cove in Salt Point State Park. Tafoni is a familiar feature of the sandstone in and around Salt Point.
It would be almost impossible to find a spot along Gerstle Cove that isn’t breathtakingly beautiful. We explored only the south end of this fairly large cove, so I’m certain there was much more great scenery we didn’t manage to see on this day. For me, part of the beauty was the wild surf. We had arrived at the Sonoma […]
Last week I shared some of my images from our hike that started at the side of Highway 1 and ended at Gerstle Cove. There is, of course, an easier way to get to the cove; if you’d rather drive than hike and don’t mind paying the fee, the access road from the highway leads directly to the day use […]
