Bodega Bay

Whitecaps splash against
Charcoal colored rocks that
Lie in scattered clumps 
Hugging the summer shoreline,
Leaving white frothy foam 
That quickly disappears as
Steadfast rocks prepare for 
Their next embrace.
The ocean is calm today 
And my thoughts drift
Through azure skies 
To mingle with the clouds.

    This one caught my eye because we have a place for the arts called Bodega Ranch. I wonder if it was inspired by this bay.

    It was inspired by Bodega Bay in Calif. Richard. I loved the area and it was made somewhat famous by Hitchcock's film "The Birds" being shot there. We had lunch near the sea and it was lovely. My daughter lives up that way. Thanks, Connie

    Do you ever get over the wonder of living in Hawaii Connie? Imagine having this wonderful view of the sea all the time. I'm so glad I got to go there and experience some of what you write about. Just a beautiful rendition of what your Hawaii is :)
