The Trip Back
The trip back is an adventure as well, with a short detour around the Anacapa arches at the far eastern tip of the island to visit a sea lion rookery and huge swells on the way back. I wonder at what difference this trip has made for the students who came on it. Most of them live in San Bernardino, and as a result, have very little access to the ocean. I look forward to hearing from them in the future, to see what their journal entrees will have in them, and what, if any, difference it makes for the teachers.
What I leave with are the memories of a very special and beautiful place, one that we must take care of to make sure it stays this way. Also I remember the images, a few of which I have shared with you here.
