Big Sur Status update. December 9, 2013

Greetings from South County Big Sur (Jade Country). It has been as cold here the last week as the rest of the central coast. Cold and windy. 12/11/13 Just got notification from Parks Management that fire restrictions have been lifted for camp fires at the developed campgrounds. No mention about other fire restrictions outside developed camping. I checked the forest service website and nothing new there at all. I have been noticing Gray Whales making their southern journey in the last week. The upper vista parking lot at Willow Creek is an awesome spot for whale watching. The Grays seem to move in close to shore here, possibly to feed. Look for them at the northernmost "stack" (rock). They seem to come in right around this point and then work their way around Cape San Martin and along the coastline past Gorda, and the Whale Watcher Cafe. Treebones resort will open again on Saturday 12/14 after their annual closure for general maintenance. I haven't heard of any great scores of Jade. We need the storm window to fully open and give us some good seas to stir things up. A friend did find a nice chunk of clear blue. I got to see it before he lost it out of his pocket! Big time Bummer. All for now. Time to head back off the grid and into Jade Country. Peace, Love and karma to all. Hank
