Self Portrait at Cannery Row’s Beach – Looking across Monterey Bay

“The tide goes out imperceptibly. The boulders show and seem to rise up and the ocean recedes leaving little pools, leaving wet weed and moss and sponge, iridescence and brown and blue and China red.”

~ John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Summer reading: I just finished reading Cannery Row (thoroughly enjoyed it) and have now moved on to John Steinbeck’s Travels With Charley (loving it!).  Steinbeck sure did know how to weave a captivating  tale!

What’s on your summer beach reading list? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
