We’ve had an extremely wet winter in Northern California this year. The drought really took hold in 2011, the year I moved here, so it’s the first time I’m experiencing what a normal winter looks like. Coming from Pennsylvania, I’m no stranger to inclement weather and over the last 5 years I’ve even complained that I missed it. Three days of rain over this long weekend though has got me feeling a little stir crazy. The solution is simple, but I really can’t seem to make myself go out in it. So instead, I sorted through my film from a recent trip to Sea Ranch, a foggy coastal community about three hours up the coast from the Bay Area.
The photos were taken yet another dreary weekend, but I was cozied up in a cabin with some of my closest girlfriends and didn’t mind. Reflecting, it’s kind of funny how I’m more than willing to venture out into nature or a new place despite some dampness, but while I’m at home I hunker down, try to be productive as possible and just wait for it to pass. Here are some 35mm photos I took from that trip back in December, when the rain was still charming.
