The kayak picture kind of makes me chuckle.  It looks like they are all going after the poor guy in the middle.

Monterey Bay is a beautiful area.  I took these pictures on the drive around the coast while there several years ago.

The pictures have been kindlized, the originals are at home on my computer and I haven't uploaded them to my photobucket yet.

Forster,

I love the area and get to it almost every weekend when I can.  I know that exact area you are showing in your pictures.  You take some really nice photos.

I still haven't learned to put new screensavers on Kindle-1 yet, I am afraid I might crash it like I do my computer.  ;D

Live in SW Montana.  Lots of mountains where I live.  Eastern Montana has a lot of wide open empty areas as well but I do enjoy them also.

We made into a little section of Montana during our trip.  I love the mountains, but the wide open spaces were a little disconcerting to me, I need to see at least some hills!


So many books, so little time...

Forster,

I live 1 1/2 hours drive from Monterey so I can be around the crowds if I want the coast, or stay home in my tiny town with nothing to do.  With the housing costs dropping, you may be able to afford a coastal home yet!  I do have a few choice homes to buy that I have looked at in Monterey/Carmel area if I were to win the lottery, but then I would probably move out of this state to one with less crazy laws.

The seals...  How do they get up on the railing?  Is there something on the far side of the picture that I don't see.

I have no idea how those little stinkers got up there; they do climb rocks  but I can't imagine how they got up on the rail.  That was how I found them, nothing around to even look like they had any help getting up.  They are fascinating in their ability to climb rocks so it could be they are able to climb a short fence as well.  Amazing they can balance on that small rail too!

I don't think that's sagebrush, though I admit I don't have much experience with sagebrush. Down here it's called cenizo, from 'ceniza,' ash, because the leaves are grayish. It's a native plant, reported to bloom BEFORE a rain. Ours bloomed last week (though that picture was taken in '05), and Saturday we got a half inch of rain. But to answer your question, that's in the patio, or just outside it, in front of the house.

Have you ever seen One Eyed Jacks with Marlon Brando? There's a scene near the end where the bad guys shoot Brando's Mexican partner and push his corpse into the surf. It looks like it may have been filmed in this same spot.

No I haven't seen that movie, but now I'm going to have to, lol.

Crush a leaf between your fingers, sniff it and if it doesn't smell like sage I'm wrong.

Great picture anyway. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Here's some sagebrush, right in front of an old beaverslide. 

Hmm, I'm not sure if that came out appropriately or not, lol.  Anyway here's the picture.

Did it. It smells leafy, but not sagey, not spicy. And la wife says it's not related.

Hang on. Here's what it smells like: *smell*.

Gotcha!

Here's a closer shot. That looks like a finger in the background, but it's not. The bee is small, the size of the metal ferrule on a pencil.
