Uncle Mike

Uncle Mike on Florence Avenue, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

My Uncle Mike came to visit from Florida. He was staying up in Windsor and we had a number of great days together. This was our first day. We had breakfast at Howard Station in Occidental, then drove over Coleman Valley Road up at the top of the world, down to the ocean.
I'd planned on Schoolhouse Beach, but there were enormous waves crashing in, making it totally unsafe.
So we joined a small crowd at Salmon Creek Beach. There were no surfers at all--the waves were pure chaotic foam.
On the way home we stopped to see Florence Avenue in Sebastopol and all of Patrick Amiot's great sculptures.
