Staying local is hardly a drag when you’re minutes away from the Sonoma Coast, the Russian River and the Sonoma Valley. If summer finds you with no plans to jet off someplace new, no worries: Here are Regional Parks’ suggestions for finding adventure in your own backyard.

In the summer of 2016 I planned an over-the-top bicycle camping trip for my family. I had arranged for a friend to transport the three of us, Renee my wife, Trinity my then 9-year-old, myself, and all our gear to Santa Cruz. We had planned to ride down Highway 1 hugging the coast through Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, San Simeon, and finish in San Luis Obispo.

Are you enjoying our spring? Don’t you love the surprise weather we have each day; maybe rain and the next day sun, a day of warmth taking off the jacket, putting the jacket on, bringing the umbrella out, putting it away, building a fire, or closing the wood room down.

I feel that I must say something to make everyone aware of the Dangerous situation that exists along the Hwy 1. corridor through the Timber Cove Subdivision: PG&E Lines, Dead Pines & Tan Oaks.

Breaking News: Iconic Berry’s Saw Mill and property in Cazadero are for sale. The Sonoma County Agricultural Preservation and Open Space District should take note, as this historic property is just over the hill from the Jenner Headlands Preserve and would complement the Preserve/Pole Mountain acquisitions in so many ways.

Spring on the Sonoma Coast offers residents of the County, as well as visitors, many amazing visual delights - wildflowers everywhere, migrating Pacific Gray Whales, Pacific Harbor Seal pups, especially at the Goat Rock Beach colony, and birds in breeding plumage and sitting on nests on the rocks off the coast that are part of the California Coastal National Monument.

The long-awaited parking lot at the Jenner Headlands Preserve is almost ready for its grand opening. Located 1.5 miles north of Jenner on Coast Highway One, volunteers are busy planting landscaping plants, while work crews put the finishing touches on the infra-structure.

Whether you live here on the coast or you are a regular visitor you know the month of July brings the blessed fog onshore and cools us down. The gentle lines of the fog belt come and go, meander up and down the coast lingering with the most refreshing feeling you can imagine, especially when you come down the off the hot hills of the coast.

The world over, we use many different words to describe long distance walking. It’s an age-old tradition that roots all the way back to our ancient ancestors, who trekked across the land as a way of life, a simple exercise in survival.

Last month I wrote about the problem we have been having in our area with crime. It still continues…numerous businesses have been broken into and merchandise is being shoplifted from quaint, locally owned stores.

BioBlitzes bring people together to document biodiversity in one place at one time, recording observations of plants and animals using smartphones or digital cameras and uploading results to the biodiversity recording and social networking platform iNaturalist (www.inaturalist.org). These events connect people of all backgrounds to the outdoors, inspire everyone to protect biodiversity, and at the same time generate invaluable data.

Deeply rooted in our minds and hearts is the comfort of a bonfire. It brings out all what came before us and creates thoughts and visions of what lies ahead. I for one can gaze into a campfire for hours. Camping and sitting around the warmth of that campfire with friends and/or family ties us together. To share stories. To tell ‘Tall Tales”. To sing. To create your own fire dance.

I try to keep this column on the “up” side, try to talk about fun and positive happenings in our community, but recently, this area has experienced quite a bit of the bad and it’s time for it to stop! We all need to stay vigilant at watching out for each other, be aware of what’s happening around us, in our neighborhoods and in town; keep each other as well as the Sheriff, informed.
