Jessica and I were driving along the Hana Highway in Maui and while we were still up along the North Shore we stopped to look around for a while at a nice outlook above the road. Suddenly Jessica spotted a large, remarkable seabird (perhaps an albatross) gliding effortlessly way above us. It was an amazing moment as we looked at this beautiful patroller of the coastline, and then it flew out of view from where we were.
Ava is perched up on the top of the cabinets along with Sparty, Belle, and Striker at the beginning of this video. But when the other three flap their way to a hasty departure, Ava just sits there.
I’ve got podcast 14 out–it’s a trip through San Francisco, set in the Fillmore area and the Outer Richmond and packed with poignant drama and serious suspense–Will the lady talking loudly on the phone erupt in a rage as she notices my camera phone? Will the woman leering out the window the MUNI bus get out and do something about it? Will the caffeine-mad throng violently overrun the Peet’s on Fillmore?
All these questions and more answered–in pacificpelican.us podcast #14.
