Sometimes when I look out our windows I almost can't believe what I'm seeing. That's how I felt this morning at the stunning sunrise.
If you look closely, you will see the lights of a fishing boat out near the horizon. The colors of this sunrise only lasted for a few minutes. But isn't it beautiful? I love how the Pacific Ocean glows with the reflected colors.
A while later this morning fog enveloped our house. You just never know what will happen next on the Mendonoma Coast!
Jan de Vries tells me that, from his house in Berkeley, the sun perfectly lines up with the Golden Gate Bridge twice a year. Many years clouds or fog obscure the view. But this year the weather was clear. Last week he took this photo of the sun setting behind the iconic bridge.
With the calm weather we've been having on the Coast, fishing boats can be seen plying the waters at night. Jon Loveless recently photographed a sunset with a fishing boat at work.
Two beautiful photos of sunsets for you today! Thanks to Jan and Jon for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
A few weeks ago the Moon and Venus were side by side in the sky. I took these photos from our deck in Anchor Bay. A lone fishing boat was still plying the waters.
A peaceful, beautiful moment in time here on the Mendonoma Coast.
Abalone season opened as did the recreational salmon season. There are happy smiles on the faces of those who venture out onto or into the ocean to get a tasty dinner. Carolyn André photographed a recent sunset with a fishing boat in the foreground.
Thanks to Carolyn for allowing me to share her photo with you here.
Bodega Bay is a small town on the Sonoma Coast with a big bay. Fishing is a way of life here. It's also a tourist destination with restaurants and several inns and lodges.
Allen Vinson recently took several photographs that will give you a bit of a feel for what this area is like.
