Gratitude. For a long time now, I have made a conscious effort to try and live my life offering gratefulness and gratitude for even the smallest and most insignificant things. It is so much easier to say Bless You rather than the alternate. I truly believe that is the reason that I am still here, and able to write this column for you. A few weeks ago, I found myself in need of immediate medical attention and hospitalization. If it were not for a number of circumstances being just right, I would not have been  able to get it. Firstly, my family happened to be home and able to recognize the situation and call for immediate medical assistance.

Happy New Year from the dramatic and blustery Sonoma Coast! The creeks are flowing and the seas are pounding, Big Time!

The monster waves hitting our coast are pushing over the River-meets-the-ocean sand bar and flooding the low-lying areas of the Estuary. Here is news from the experts:

Fall has definitely arrived here on the coast. The rains we had a few weeks back triggered the mushrooms. Although a follow-up shower would have really gotten the ‘shrooms’ going, a few Boletes and Porcini’s have been popping up. We found a couple of beauties (at a secret location!) and thoroughly enjoyed them with a nice Risotto. Nothing better; freshly picked (bug-free and firm!) sliced thin, & slowly sautéed in butter. And good for you, too! Jenner Headlands Preserve is an obvious success...Work has begun to repair the collapsing culvert walls where Sheep house Creek crosses under Hwy 116/River Road and flows into the Russian River Estuary

Fish & Wildlife personnel, with the able assistance of The Sea Ranch Security, other agencies and private citizens, successfully busted an organized Abalone Poaching operation! The illegal taking of this prized mollusk can be very profitable as the ‘Sea Snail’ is in short supply due to habitat degradation and loss.
