up and down the coast

After I used this photo as yesterday's header I realized that I really didn't have any photos to go along with it -- the trip I took down to the Half Moon Bay area a week ago, aside from a few pumpkin shots, yielded precious-few photos.

Those are Brussels Sprouts and they do well in the cool coastal climate.   A veggie from from outer-space, 'fer sure...

On Friday I heard the radio advising everybody to be especially careful at the coast because of a high-surf advisory.   To a snapshooter, news like that is roughly equivalent to hearing a dinner-bell ringing, so I made my way up to a great wave viewing area at the little coastal hamlet of Carmet, about half way between Bodega Bay and the Russian River.   Oh, I've seen larger waves and splashes, but these weren't too shabby and I definitely had a good time.

How about a walk on the beach?   Better wear a hat.   Great danger of getting pooped-on.

That's Bolinas down there.   Some day I'm going to get real lucky and get some new shots of the hang-gliders and sail-planes that occasionally use this spot as a launch area.

Not much more than specks on the horizon, but those are the Farallon Islands, now a marine wildlife sanctuary, about 20 miles off the coast.

Maybe I'm from outer space. I LOVE Brussels Sprouts. I make them every Thanksgiving in a wonderful dish. I make it huge so I can eat the leftovers for a few days.

I totally understand the wave alert!

Walking on the beach--beautiful. Worth the poop.

Great capture of the Farallons. I just saw a documentary about them. Quite fascinating.
Hubby and I many years ago did some deep sea fishing around them. Kind of stinky from all the birds.
