Cathleen is the owner of Coasting Home, a property management company in Gualala. On this evening Cathleen was called out on a service call. This sunset at Green Cove was her reward.
Last night's sunset was beautiful too, but today we have a little smoke from the terrible fires in Southern California. We need to start our rain dances.
Thanks to Cathleen for allowing me to share her photo with you here. If you are looking for a Mendonoma vacation rental, here is her website: http://www.coastinghome.com/
Tricia Schuster photographer this beautiful sight, with the departed sun still reflecting in the clouds.
We are expecting a pretty good storm today, so batten down the hatches!
Thanks to Tricia for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
Cooks Beach, just north of the town of Gualala, has a large pocket beach, a creek for little ones to play in, and a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. It's a perfect place to go to see the sunset. Eric Duff did just that a few weeks ago.
I love the reflection on the wet sand. Thanks to Eric for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To learn more about Cooks Beach, here is the link to the Redwood Coast Land Conservancy: http://www.rc-lc.org/
Some smoke has flowed into the coast from the inland fires today. It's not too bad, but you definitely can smell smoke. There are a lot of evacuees here, and we are trying to help them as best we can. We pray the rain in our forecast materializes. It is forecast for late Wednesday. Rain would be such a boon for Northern California.
I can't resist sharing such beauty with you. Photographer Paul Brewer was in Jenner when the sunset looked like this.
Breathtaking, don't you think?!
We had some welcome rain yesterday morning. We had .17 inch in our rain gauge. Not much, that's true, but September rain is always a boon.
Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is his website: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/
Eric Duff was at Cooks Beach to experience the beautiful sunset we had last Saturday, Sept. 9th.
To see the colors of the sky reflected in the water on the sand is special. And I thank Eric for allowing me to share such beauty with you here.
The weather looks fine for the weekend and the Mendonoma coast beckons you. If you'd like to find Cooks Beach, here is the website to the Redwood Coast Land Conservancy. http://www.rc-lc.org/
You will find directions for Cooks Beach, plus another of my favorites, Hearn Gulch, and the Gualala Bluff Trail. Rick and I, along with our golden retriever, Sunny, walked the GBT yesterday. A Gray Whale was seen just off the kelp beds. We always see something from this trail. Thank you, RCLC!
