Stateside With Rosalea: Snapshots

1. Something familiar at Linda Mar shopping centre, Pacifica CA.

2. Looking south down Highway 1, which will take you to Montara where there is an AYH hostel in a lighthouse. Denny's is a family restaurant chain currently running a promotion called "Re-ignite the Dream" to raise a million dollars for a civil rights museum. Lest we forget that as late as the 1960s US citizens had to fight their own government for the right to sit at the same lunch counter as their friends, let alone vote.

3. Faux lux. The Best Western motel at Rockaway Beach. Photo taken from beside restored wetlands in a disused quarry, looking south towards the little islands at the end of both Rockaway and Pacifica State Beach.

4. Lucky snapshot. As the bus entered the ticky-tacky boxland of the northern end of Pacifica I glanced back and got this shot of the late afternoon sun on the vast Pacific Ocean.
