The Mist Descended

Note: OOPS--For some reason, the number of photos contained within these pages has been grossly exaggerated...

It was about 5:30 pm and as we traveled the road which snaked along the heights of Bodega Bay, a heavy mist appeared. It gradually began to fall upon the immense boulders and rugged shoreline.

We pulled off the road and carefully descended the narrow trail to Schoolhouse Beach. As I snapped pictures, the fog slowly covered the jutting rocks,dropping a gauzy curtain over the shoreline. It grew chilly.

The waves crashed and churned. Although a few people remained in small pockets along the beach...it seemed isolated, yet beautiful!

(Please take a peek at my Travelogue--for more photos of the beach)

    Evocative photos and texts about Bodega Bay and its old school. And those kids trying to keep warm by their fire on Schoolhouse Beach.

    What a cool place! The whole page reminds us of a Hitchcock film. Any bird attacks while you were there?

    A nice page on this coastal town and the setting of “The Birds.”

    Hi Veronica. Your writing style really helped me to virtually experience this area. I remember the Birds well but in the movie the sun was out so it was intersting seeing the area cloudy & grey, yet still beautiful.

    I loved "The Birds" being a Hitchock fan. Your pictures remind me of some of the film locations. That sea must get quite ferocious in bad weather. Tim

    Such an eerie atmosphere in some of the travelogues photos...spectacular pictures. Yes, the places look familiar from "The Birds". I love the ones of you atop the rock. Your usual stellar page, which I always appreciate.
