Some old friends and I belong to a book club called BMC

blacks morning crew book club

these days, aside from Overstory and The Flowering World of Chinese Wilson

we are reading and discussing John Steinbeck

I like that his stories take place near the coves harbors breakwaters that I know well

and that the towns are meaningful to me with names like Salinas, San Ardo, King City, Castroville, Monterey and Moss Landing

this entry here was inspired by the log of the Sea of Cortez, his collecting trip down to the Golfo de California with Doc

This is a basic introduction to this fantastic group of animals:
