Big Sur

The fire in Big Sur up in back of me here on the Central Coast is 65% contained this morning. The smoke and ash has lessened a great deal. We are so relieved. Highway 1 is opened and the news has brought a lot of people to town here in Cambria. I understand too that businesses are opening back up in Big Sur.

The condors have survived,we have a very large area that is a sanctuary for them and the young were air lifted out. The older followed their instincts and prevailed.The firemen , heroes all, beat back the fire and saved our historic structures there. So much loss in homes, wildlife and majestic pines. Thankfully no lives lost!

The Big Sur is spiritual, nature at its most pristine. It will most certainly return to it's magnificent grandeur.

A heartfelt thank you to all of the brave heroic firemen and so too the many courageous workers and volunteers.

God Bless, XO Susan
