Oh, we had a wild storm last week on Thursday. It was windy and pouring rain. In advance of the storm, the surf was huge. Pam Ryan photographed some of it.

I live a half mile away from the Pacific Ocean, but I could still hear - and feel - the booming waves. Today is it breezy and clear as can be.

Thanks to Pam for allowing me to share her photos with you here.

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!

Paul Brewer photographed the beautiful sunset from the banks of the Gualala River. You can see the river is currently closed to the Pacific Ocean by the sandbar. Past the sandbar is the ocean.

Beth Kattleman was in the right place at the right time to get this photo of two Does on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

That was a nice sunny day, which is how most of February has been here. But this afternoon it has begun raining - nice, big drops!

Bob Rutemoeller photographed the Gualala River and the Pacific Ocean meeting.

Where the Gualala River and the Pacific Ocean meet by Bob RutemoellerYou can see the Gualala River is muddy from all the storms. The ocean is coming over the sandbar and entering the river at its mouth. It's endlessly fascinating to watch this river and its interplay with the ocean!
