I went for a short stroll through the Downing-Nilon Family Grove before heading toward Point Arena for work today. It is located right off the 128. The ocean was gray, gray, gray today. Still, overwhelming feelings of gratitude arose within while driving along the coast. I stopped a few times and went for short walks along the bluffs. I tried out some binoculars that my brother gave me for a gift a couple of years ago. I scanned the ocean for whales but did not see any today. They are now migrating north with their newborns.
