    I'm here, my daughter's there. She said, "Wolf!" when I sent her this picture. my condolences, east coasters. i know, i'm mean. i've been told. Quite eloquently, I might add.


    image: yesterday, looking at Catalina Island. In the morning the air was so crisp and water so calm it looked as if you could just run across a football field and be on the island. In year's I've never seen it so clear. San Clemente island, usually just a speck on the horizon, was enormous by comparison. In fact, when we were at the top of the hill in Newport Beach, looking out to sea, I for a moment thought, San Clemente was Catalina. This photo was taken about an hour later and the sun had already created a haze over the water, but it is still very beautiful.
