    Point Arena Lighthouse, there are lightkeeper homes there about 100 yards from the lighthouse that you can rent. really an awesome place to stay as the lighthouse and lighthouse keeper homes are on a spit of land that juts out to sea so that there are waves crashing on the bluffs in front and in back of the homes. "Forever Young" with Mel Gibson was filmed here and the Gazebo that they made for the movie is still standing, a popular spot for weddings:

    taken near Fort Ross, California (a California state park which is a replica of a Russian Fort):

    I'm glad she is going well! She looks healthy in that pic - minus the equipment of course. How much did she weigh when she was born?

    Kevin, those are the kind of pics I take obsessively.

    Both of those firefighting pics are awesome, but I find the first has those rings of light which makes distracts me from the image and makes it look overprocessed.
    The second is very good!

    Thank you. I designed the stencil of it to send to my friend Hannah there, so I had to get a picture of the devestation I had helped to create. It's in the middle of nowhere just north of Thief River Falls if you ever wish to see it in person.

    Kindest kindest,
