Marcelia Fosse caught this surfer in a moment of joy as he heads to the waves off Anchor Bay Beach.

He can't wait to check the surf by Marcelia Fosse

It's shows the joy of anticipation, doesn't it? Below is a photo taken by Eric Anderson several years ago of a surfer catching a wave off Anchor Bay Beach.

Thanks to Marcelia and Eric for allowing me to share their photos with you here. We are having a lovely day on the Mendonoma Coast today, with sunshine and drifting clouds.

Peter Cracknell photographed this surfer and titled his photos, "Wipe out!"

Wipe out in big waves off Point Arena by Peter Cracknell

You can see the Bull Kelp in the water. I'm sure this surfer got back on his or her board and road the waves again.

Thanks to Peter for allowing me to share his photo with you here.

Allen Vinson recently visited the new addition to the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands. You access this beautiful land behind the Point Arena City Hall. While there Allen had some wonderful sightings. He also got this great photo of a fellow enjoying the waves off Arena Cove.

Allen visited at low tide as you can see by the photo below.

And he spotted a beautiful Ferruginous Hawk on top a tree.

I love this photo below of the big hawk taking off.

And here the hawk is soaring, perhaps looking for a meal.

And this last photo shows the hawk lit up by the sun.

We are very happy that these new lands were acquired and made available to all. They now form another portion of the California Coastal Trail.

Thanks to Allen for allowing me to share his photos with you here.

Happy New Year! May 2014 be filled with wonder and joy.


The fog has finally pulled back, revealing the ocean we knew was there! Eric Anderson photographed the happy scene at Anchor Bay Beach where a surfer rides the waves.

And here's a recent sunset from our deck, just a little south of this beach.

Sure, the water is cold and you probably will need a wet suit. But Anchor Bay Beach is a fun place to ride the waves. David Wayne Floyd recently photographed a fellow with a boogie board enjoying the waves.
