Diann, Tracy and I left a hot Rogue Valley and took Taxi, Maia and Tori to Crescent Beach in Crescent City, California. It was Taxi’s first time at the Pacific Ocean and he rocked it, such a brave and confident boy. Maia and Tori are old hands at the ocean, but sea birds, dead rays, driftwood and sculptures made of dead crabs caused them some pause. Still they cantered freely down the beach and stopped to our sigh and Tori gaited through the waves. Life is very good. Music by Mary Ann Kennedy is used with the permission of the artist.
