Come visit Point Lobos!

4 Apr

During my recent trip to the Monterey / Carmel (California) area, Carrieanna and I visited with the docents, volunteers and other enthusiastic members of the team at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve.

They were excited to show us this newly-created slideshow about Easy Access Point Lobos, set to the tune of “Sail Into the Sun” by Gentlemen Hall.

(And if that doesn’t inspire you to plan a trip to Point Lobos, I don’t know what will!)

And make a note of these upcoming Easy Access events and highlights:

Saturday, April 13 (1:30 – 3:30) & Wednesday, April 17 (11-1) – Granite Point Trail (Highlights: Harbor Seals Pupping and Herons Nesting)

    Dear Jeri,

    Welcome home! Anxious to learn about how you conquered New Zealand. How very thoughtful of you to send the framed calendar photograph of Carrieanna. The material on Point Lobos and your latest blog about your visit there with Carrieanna was indeed touching. You are a very special person.

    Love,

    Becky and Ted

    xoxo
