Postcards from the Edge of the Continent


A few things we learned in Monterey Bay where we celebrated our first anniversary and my birthday, both on October 18th:

The sea is home to some of the fiercest beauty one could ever wish to see... anemone that look like cherry blossoms....

Stinging Jellies are beautiful and not to be touched!!


Sea Horses are so special, awkward and gentle that you're liable to fall in love...

If you feed them....

They will come!!!

If you kiss them

They will be calm and happy

Until next time, thank you for the healing and love, Monterey Bay!!

This was just what the doctor would have ordered had I gone to a doctor.... we are rested, revived and I am ready to go to LA and rock softly.

I missed you all: thanks so much for the birthday and anniversary well-wishes - they were received with lots of smiles and gratitude!!!
