FAMILY DESPERATELY NEEDS WHEELCHAIR VAN - A local Bodega Bay Nonprofit, Waves of Compassion Foundation, is asking for your donation. Several years ago, we worked to raise money to buy a specialized van for this family when their young sons were first diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy requiring wheelchairs. It is a devastating, debilitating disease yet this family perseveres. They need a new van. Please donate. They are on Go Fund Me under: Family Desperately need Wheelchair Van or their link is: https://www.gofundme.com/f/family-desperately-need-wheelchair-van?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
WHY I LOVE BODEGA BAY - Kathe Foster, a very dear friend, shared: As a relatively newcomer, now calling Bodega Bay my home, I must say every day amazes me here. Mostly the people, and the very generous spirit of those I come into contact with. Everyone seems to want to give to others and help those in need ~ we are trying to join in that spirit of giving and helping, working with Waves of Compassion. Also, everywhere I look I need to stop and appreciate my surroundings ~ it could not be more beautiful! The surf, the surrounding hills, the sky. Yesterday we walked Portuguese Beach ~ the drama was unbelievable. The ocean was making sure it was heard . . . Kaboom! The crashing waves were like thunder; they exploded against the rocks. looking like an erupting volcano. On the way back to our house a few deer grazing in the open space looked up and said ‘hello’ ~ we nodded back, then waved at a neighbor before settling into our place for the evening. We are so blessed to live here.
MISSING MY DAD– Mike Ambrosino, who introduced me to the wonders of Bodega Bay, passed away at 94 on February 25th. Back in the day, he would fly his airplane from the East Bay and land on Salmon Creek Beach. Now that is a tricky landing and take-off. He loved the tailwinds to get him home fast. My mom and dad used to take us Abalone diving & rock picking on the Bodega Head and up the coast. They would tie a rope around our waist when we were going down the dangerous trails to the coastal tidepools and rocks to keep us safe! We would dig for clams and dine on fabulous clam cakes or crabs boiled in sea water. He also built all of his boats that we went fishing in, including one with a cabin that kept us warm. Such a rich life he brought to me and all those who knew him.
