Point Lobos

Today we visited Point Lobos, “The greatest meeting of land and water in the world,” and it sure was in our estimation.  We loved the landscape of the rocky coves and windswept trees.  We spent a long time just exploring the amazing rock formations being washed (away, in geologic time) by the ocean.


Point Lobos was Karen’s favorite spot on the planet, so we thought that we would leave some of her ashes here somewhere.  Karen’s friend Melissa flew out from D.C. to spend some time with us here, and to be a part of this.  At the spot where we played the most, two auspicious things happened.  First, an otter was eating an abalone and we were able to watch him put on a show for us for a long time (Karen loved otters) and then a seal popped its head out of the water and looked right at us.  We thought that those were good signs, so we left a little of Karen there in the ocean.  It was a good place.

We also hiked through the grove of Monterey Cypress trees, looked at clear, blue waters in rocky canyons.  And we toured the whaler’s cabin, which had a museum about Point Lobos and lots of historical information about the area.

It was nice to catch up with her since seeing her last in Monterey, CA. [...]
