Point Reyes


My dad and I drove up north to Point Reyes today.








See that thing by the sign? That is a gray whale's skull.






North.






Sitting up above the Pacific in the wind and sunshine, waiting for an instant to develop...ahh. :)


The whale skull again.








Rattlesnake grass.

The ocean is my FAVORITE.

gabi - Uganda is your home, but do you miss the sea there?

Girl in the Black Beret - There is nothing like it, mmm.

Milli - It's the one thing I remember from a nature walk at camp when I was young, hah! You can eat the part that looks like a rattlesnake's tail. Tastes kind of like unsalted unbuttered popcorn.

Erin - Yess. So good for the soul, it is.

spider- Ah. How long do you think it is until you do? Have you before?

geekspawn - I know you know about the sea, even if you don't have one most of the time.

Errr... is it 100% inappropriate to say your dad is... wow.

Holly 5/13/2010 11:45 AM  

Erin - omg, omg, LOL! I guess he is quite fit for his age :)

Yes, I've seen it several times before. (Though I've seen the Atlantic, not the Pacific.) And I should get to see it again... this June? I think that's right.

spider - Good. I was going to cry and send you some polaroids if you hadn't.

I was here once, long ago.

Beth - A view to make your spirit sing, isn't it? To steal a line from Dia Calhoun.

Wow, that rattle snake grass is so cool. I've never seen that before!

Holly 5/18/2010 11:41 PM  

aipingplum - Have you seen non-urban California at all?
