Carnivores With Incomplete Guts @ McClure's Beach

Anemones have a lot going for them, pun-wise. Beyond the obvious "friend or" line, they have adhesive feet and a combination mouth/anus. We'll leave it to you to take that concept and run with it on your own.

For The Birds

Unfortunately we missed Miss Hedren's annual Labor Day visit to Bodega and the infamous nearby bay. The locals have nothing but good things to say about her, but it's clear the real draw is the legend of a portly bald dude who made a movie or two.

Roll Out The Barrel

During our visit to Battery Townsley today, we thought, "What this place really needs is a 16" gun!"

Well, as it turns out, that canon pad won't be empty too much longer.  A 16 inch gun that originally graced the USS Missouri was saved from the scrapheap and it will be making the trip from Hawthone NV to the left coast later this month.

The 120 ton barrel will be making the trip on a rig smaller (?!) than the one that hauled Michael Heizer's 340 ton rock to the LA MOA earlier this year.  But the gun's road trip will be three times as long. (311 vs 105 miles). Any way you look at it, that's one helluva road trip.
