Christmas 2011 is here on Mare Island. Last night, inspired by my talented neighbor and lead Nocturne Tim Baskerville, I made the mile-long hike along the lighted trees and pathways of the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve. I must say it was quite a wonderful experience. Kudos to Myrna Hayes and the numerous volunteers that make this natural and historic island one of my favorite places to get away on the bay.
As the sun set on the horizon, I quietly photographed “The Spirit Ship” adorned in LED lights and thought of the numerous Yardbirds that once made this tiny Navy outpost one of the most important places in our country. Mare-y Christmas!
