My son Abe was visiting over the weekend and he obliged me by going out painting, though it was also a great opportunity to walk his dog. We wanted to go south towards Elk but the fog was threatening, so we turned north toward Ten Mile. We parked this side of the fabulous new bridge and walked down the little path toward the dunes and I found this neat view looking north. Can you imagine living in such a spot? These people are certainly rich in visual opportunities as they gaze south toward the river, the dunes and the wild ocean to the west. You can barely see it, but there's a stretch of the lost coast there in the background.
