Coastal Fog and Other Wonders...

Still Thursday..

Scotch Broom in the fog... Apparently the Scots brought it to make brooms and it got kinda out of hand (grin). You can see it all up and down the coast, from Canada to the Mexican Border, It’s a good grower... and occasionally villified for it!

Hopefully I will find a place where I can post. The campground, in Olema California, (Point Reyes) has WiFi, but, of course, they charge. Greedy bastards....

I forgot to mention that yesterday, going up the coast, I rounded a corner on the winding road and saw a large bird on the yellow stripe. Fearful, I slowed... it crouched down. I stopped beside it, hoping it wasn’t horribly injured. It was a wild turkey. I looked at it... it looked at me, balefully. I said “shoo” and it got up and walked away! Must have been warm on the yellow stripe or something...

No wonder they call them turkeys!

I have two pictures of the road in the fog. It’s really pretty driving in the fog as long as you can see. The one where the trees arch over the road is beautiful... the other shows one of my favorite trees, the Monterey Pine. I love these trees because they remind me of a furry gloved many fingered hand, reaching towards the road, bent forever by the wind from the ocean.



Now...

off to lunch and try to post!

YES!

MizM,

Love your scenery pics, I think my fave of this bunch is at the bottom of the post (with the fog).

I'm living vicariously since you're traveling like I want to (dream constantly about) but can't yet. Hope you don't mind the intrusion.

Safe Journey,

Shann
