Spent the Labor Day weekend camping at Salt Point, on the Sonoma county coast, with my family, including the in-laws. Woke up Saturday morning to a world of fog, the tall pines towering above us in the grey light, everything quiet and still. It stayed foggy until midafternoon. We walked up and down the coast, found a remarkable natural stone arch by the sea, and I enjoyed the feeling of being on misty seaside moors. The rest of the weekend was sunny, warm, and beautiful; perfect for hauling logs & building a giant abstract driftwood sculpture on the beach, and, on Monday morning, for abalone diving. Pretty close to perfect. It was hard to come back to the world of weblogs & email.
