Our friend Norm Levin just sent me these cool night photos taken outside the Sandpiper Restaurant, after seeing my last post. Norm and his family recently visited Bodega Bay for vacation, he's the portrait photographer I mentioned in a previous post.
Here are his comments about the Sandpiper: "We stopped here to sample the Clam Chowder for a take-out snack. Mixed reviews from our crew, some thought it too salty. Anyway we empathize with their landlord plight. I cannot understand why 'developers' have so little regard to local sentiment. Preservation of local landmarks is something taken for granted in most parts of the world.... except here!
"My photos of the harbor were coincidentally taken across the parking lot from the Sandpiper. The scene takes on an otherworldly view at night. These and others are in my Fine Arts Gallery."
