Beached

Waiting for the Tide, a photo by webmink on Flickr.

Point Reyes is a beautiful, windswept peninsula on the northern California coast, just north of San Francisco. It’s actually a national park, probably because of its association with the elizabethan explorer Sir Francis Drake.

This photograph looks back to the mainland across Tomales Bay, a sharp point of water cutting off most of the peninsula. It’s actually the water-filled top of the San Andreas Fault, so each time I see this beached boat I imagine it as the life-raft for the Big One.
