White on white

Pushed out to sea by the heat of day, the night fog rolls in with a vengeance. It swirls and snakes and hovers until dawn then retreats, a scrim of white, waiting.

It's all about the view in this house above the marine layer on Saddle Peak Road.

the shock of the old


There's no cell service in Solstice Canyon but not to worry, a relic of the distant past -- a working pay phone -- is there to save the day. All you need is something else from a bygone era -- exact change. (Well OK, you can make a credit card call, but where's the fun in that?)

Room service

Visit the Cross Creek shopping center these days and it's egret nesting season, about a dozen families raising their chicks in the treetops. There are multiple flights in and out as parent birds hunt the lagoon for food for their growing -- the baby birds are pretty big at this point -- families.

I love the closeup of the egret baby face, and there's a little video of two nestlings squabbling as they wait for a parent to return with lunch.

Summer school

A little light reading on the Pepperdine campus.

Hello, summer

It's the first full day of summer today and in keeping with the season's first heat wave the sunrise went from cool and misty and atmospheric --

hello, summer



first sunrise of summer


...to FREAKING HOT in the span of about sixty seconds.

Heat wave

This isn't exactly how it looked when the temps here hit the high 80s yesterday but it's pretty much exactly how it felt.

Roof cat

One of the things I'll miss about this little cottage -- the kitty who lives on the main house roof.
