seeking clear air

I am so glad I bugged out to the coast for a while. It was smoky and HOT where i was. The worst was the trip here, where i passed several areas that were 113F. Oh, Monterrey... it's a lovely 70F here, sunny and clear.

My eight month old daughter loves seeing the Ocean and the sea birds. The other two kids are like baby sea turtles... they just want to run right into the surf. crazy nuts.

Sea Otters and porpoises are all over, just beyond the waves. Those better be porpoise fins! :P

I am thinking of painting a chapter in my next book that involves a seascape. It looks so strange and beautiful here. The sun is red from the smoke, and casting an eerie light on the turquoise waves.
