The Lost Coast: Photo Essay

Missing home.

While the rhythm of the life here, shuttling between the ICU (to be with Dana) and the hotel (for the swimming and sleep with the kids) is not a difficult one, I miss home.

I miss the ka-pow! beauty of the mist, the water, trees and hills. I even miss that stinker, Blue, and Kianna, and our cats. I miss Mikey most of all.

Here are some photos that I found on my computer. I guess this is a good time to tell you that I’ve started up a place where you can look at my photos and even buy them if you want. It’s linked here.

Over & out.
