Bodega Bay

It was years ago I found Bodega Bay on a birding excursion. It is one of the most beautiful places on the coast. The weather was great, and I touched the Pacific and saw the surf. The county operates an outrageously nice rv park on the jetty that protects the bay, $32 a night for dry camping. Conditions permitting, I’m looking ahead to trying out some places that might be better.

When I reached Bodega Head, a school bus of middle schoolers pulled up and I watched my favorite California scene: every person on that bus was a different skin color. From a teacher with to reddest of red hair and freckles, to a girl that was blue-black, every possible shade was represented. I’ll bet that a dozen languages could be spoken on that one bus.

I miss the ethnic diversity when I’m in the Southwest, or rather the ethnic variety. It’s good to be back.
