Between two storms.
Time to get out and walk Scenic Drive
from Ocean Avenue to Carmel River Beach.
Not the only one with this idea.
Beach at Thirteenth Avenue
taken back by the ocean.
Walker House with Carmel Beach in the distance.
Round the Point to Carmel River Beach.
Hiding in the reeds in
Carmel River Wetlands a family of Bufflehead out for a swim.
Someone casts for Steelhead as the
river breaches the dune.
I consider crossing the river stream
to hike Carmel Meadows.
The next wave shouts, not a good idea!
The Mission bells chime 11AM Mass
and my attention turns to toward the wetlands.
I decide to detour off of Scenic Drive
and walk home via Dolores.
But first a stop at Mission Ranch.
There is something so fascinating about
Mr. Eastwood’s wooly sheep.
Gaudete in Domino semper!
