Paul Brewer photographed a recent sunrise and sunset at Jenner. Jenner is where the Russian River empties into the Pacific Ocean.
Jenner is also where a pair of Bald Eagles has been spotted for the past several years. We think there is an active nest, as a juvenile was seen there too.
Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share his photos with you here. To see much more of Paul's nature photography, here is the link to his website: http://www.capturingnatureswonders.com/
Paul Brewer recently photographed a beautiful autumn sunrise.
What a treat to see this sunrise progress. A beautiful start for the Mendonoma Coast.

The heat wave we had been experiencing broke yesterday. Last Saturday we had the highest temperature we've ever had in 17 years of living here - 96 degrees. We weren't sad to see the heat go. This morning's early sunrise was reflected off some beautiful clouds with the calm ocean underneath, as seen from our deck.
The Pacific Ocean has no whitecaps today and fishing boats are out. Salmon fishing has been great lately. I'll share a photo showing a beautiful salmon soon.
Tomorrow we celebrate the 4th of July, commemorating the birth of America. Here on the Mendonoma Coast, we will celebrate on Saturday the 6th with fireworks in Point Arena and a parade on Sunday.
Joel Crockett was enjoying Cook's Beach with his dog, Argish, early one morning recently. Lucky for us Joel had his camera and took this beautiful photo.
I thank Joel for allowing me to share his photo with you here. Joel is the owner of The Four-eyed Frog bookstore in Gualala. If you'd like to support this independent bookstore - one of the friendliest places in Gualala, perhaps the world - here's the website: http://www.foureyedfrog.com/

I want you to have only good memories of your visit to this special spot.
The soft pastels of a Mendonoma sunrise, constantly changing and always mesmerizing, can start your day off right. Carolyn André photographed Thursday's sunrise from her home at The Sea Ranch.
Add a cup of coffee or tea and you have the perfect start to the day. Thanks to Carolyn for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
