    I spent 4 hours on the beach at Pt. Reyes in December with my cousin, and your current series is making me definitely want to return (with camera) in the near future for a a longer period of time.

    1. Michael, it’s interesting that you should mention Marc Cohn. We were listening to him on NPR a couple of weeks ago playing cover songs from his Listening Booth CD. Both Connie and I liked the way he took other folks songs and added something special of his own to each of them.
