Drift wood undrifted from our weekend trip



Drift wood undrifted

Laura and I had a wonderful time on the North Coast this weekend. We had lunch in Petaluma, spent an hour on the windy and scenic Sonomoa Coast State Beach, eat dinner at the Gualala Hotel, spent the night in Ukiah, bought a piece of folk art in Healdsburg, and then had dinner with an out-of-town friend in Berkeley.

The picture shows drift wood reconstructed on the Sonoma Coast State Beach.

I used to be big fan of the World Almanac

As I kid, I loved owning and browsing through reference books such as The World Almanac. For quite a few years, I would excitedly plunk down money for each new edition of the almanac. Now in the age of the internet and given that I’m a lot older and less in a serendipitous frame of mind, I’m less inclined to buy a copy of the alamanac.
