Lafeyette Children, you make me smile.
This Rainbow is going to last for a while.
Remember these days and speak of them well
For they may never be here, again . . .
The Wind was definitely incredible this week. On Tuesday the wind blew harder than I have ever witnessed while living here in Loma Mar. Pidgeon Point recorded the winds as being about 50 mph. The electricity went out throughout that afternoon and night time and the students did not even show any signs of worry, We enjoyed the wisdom of the wind and learned to live with it. This week was a very special week. It was especially special because it was the last week that Mr. Jake VanAkkeren, teacher at Burton Valley, will be attending the outdoor school. He has been coming to the outdoor school for the 30 years that we have been in existence. He is such a kind man; gentle and caring and Earth Centered. I have learned so much from him in our time together. Thank you so much for giving to us.
Here is the Hot Spot list:
two octopus, sea stars, sandpipers, two juvenile black crowned night herons, egrets, great blue herons, pygmy nuthatches, grey whales migrating!!
Iris’ blooming, many deer, wilsons and orange crowned warblers, pacific slope flycatcher, chipping sparrow
The wind was the dominant character in this weeks hot spot. The swell was out of the north and was pretty steady throughout the week. All is well as the Wind Cries Lafayette.
