Find Me At Seth Apter's Altered Page Today and Yesterday's Art and Ocean Day

Yesterday we had a refreshing day at Bodega Bay!
The temperature was in the 60's
perfect ocean weather
the waves were high
fun to watch

crashing on the rocks!

Earlier in the day we drove down this street in Sebastopol and it was a living outdoor art show,
as in front of almost every house on the block was this permanently installed  huge piece of metal sculpture art!
and I got out with my camera and walked up and down the street taking photos,
this being a very few of the many.
I saw a young woman outside one of the houses and asked her about them.
She told me her father, Patrick Amiot, is the artist who created
all of these wonderful gems.
We had seen other's of his on the way into town that were even LARGER/HUGE on
the side of hillsides and roads and businesses.
