I was walking along the parking area next to carmel beach… and there was a beautiful sixties vw Westfalia camper bus sitting there with the door open. So, being the VW lover I am, I went over to check it out. Nobody was anywhere near it. I suspect the owner was out surfing. Inside… happy as a clam… was this great cat. He was a bit hard to photograph in the bus. But he was obviously the king of the bus. As I took this shot he hopped down and proceeded to jump out of the bus and go sit on a rock 50 feet away on the edge of the sand like he owned the property. Dogs walking by on leashes sniffed at him… he didn’t even look at them… all sorts of random noises… not a flinch… nothing phased him. He was… one cool cat.
What a life. If I were a cat I think I would like to live in a sixties Westfalia camper on the beach in Carmel. I kinda want to even as a human…

Look carefully at this wrought iron. Move around the window view bars if you can’t see the whole image. It is a small very small fence on a building in Carmel by the Sea, CA. Awesome work. Such amazing detail at the top…each little dragon head different than the next. It is inspiring to think that somebody cared enough to build this grate … that 80 years later still really makes a huge impact.
A simple iron fence that makes you smile.
