"Man is not an aquatic animal, but from the time we stand in
youthful wonder beside a Spring brook till we sit in old age
and watch the endless roll of the sea, we feel a strong kinship
with the waters of this world."

It has been very windy and raining in Red Bluff. Northern California has received more than normal rainfall and snow during the month of January.
Here are some photographs of the flooding on our property in Red Bluff.
We are home now and back into our normal routines.
We continue to make improvements in our home. We have realtors and buyers contacting us about selling our home. Buyers are coming this weekend to visit our home.
Our camping trip to Bullard's Beach State Park in Oregon was outstanding.
Our next beach trip in March will be to Rockaway Beach in Oregon.
We now have a portable beach tent and low beach chairs. Essential for extended outings out to windy and cool beaches.
Yesterday, we watched the documentary film "Cooked" based on the book by Michael Pollan. Excellent insights into a variety of aspects (social, scientific, culinary, agriculture, cultural, manufacturing) of food and cooking. I am now reading his book "The Omnivore's Dilemma."
