yesterday i went to the jetty for the third time in my life. i loved it. of course. it's a cool place. it's worth the drive. i think. certainly not every weekend. i was sad because this time all the worn out vehicles marking the parking place were gone. i was sad. at least there were better signs to get us there. i saw a short-eared owl, a curlew, and a bunch of pelicans whose flapping wings made the coolest squeaking sounds. i didn't take any photos, but here are a couple from the first time i went - september 2002.
