When you tell people you live in Bodega Bay, only the old-timers equate it with “The Birds”. Most of those who live in California (but inland) think of crab, fishing, birding, and tourist attractions (like beaches and kayaks). Of course we now have a new topic: fires and recovery.

The trees on the road to Sebastopol are all turning yellow; the grapes are hanging heavy on the vines and the kids are all back to school – Fall has come. September is always a mellow month. This month we had a surprise electric storm, with real lightning and thunder but only a trace of rain. It certainly wasn’t enough to damage the excellent reputation we have for Indian summer. September and October are some of the very nicest months.
