Cannery Row - shops and eateries on this waterfront street of Monterey, once the site of many sardine canning factories. This was the setting of John Steinbeck…

What an eerie feeling in the middle of the afternoon. And to think, yesterday, there were bright blue clear skies and birds chirping.

Behind every cloud are blue skies. Thinking of Japan on the one year anniversary of the devastating earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster.

of Auntie C - a special lady full of adventure…wise and trusted counselor…shared my interests…my silent mentor - she will be very missed.
