Recently on the day when we featured eclipse photos, one of the 'review' pictures was passed over that day, but I've included them here with one of my all-time favorite Pasty Cam shots. The Gull Rock sunrise by Alex Protzel (featured on this day in 2000) was among our first 'guest photos' on the Pasty Cam. Most of them to that point had been taken by my son Jonathan, including the double-view pair with Andy Ewert at the helm of the motor boat. The video from Tiger Holm is from the shore looking toward the lighthouse.

To put in perspective how long ago all of these pictures appeared on the Pasty Cam, it was before either Jonathan or Andy were married (and maybe even Alex and Tiger). In fact, I'm sure there are kids who were toddlers in the summer of 2000 who got married this summer. I have four granddaughters who weren't around back then. And who would have guessed, 17 years later, we'd be taking photos (and movies) with our phones??

Hope your having a good holiday. Have a good week :O)

Nice pictures and video. We tried to drive out to
the point one year before my dad passed away. Was
taking them for a drive and it was just too far.
My dad was getting edgy so we turned around. Some
day I hope to make it out there.

Fantastic video...thanks for the ride-along! Like Deb, I would like to make it there someday...there's always hope :-)))))))

Very beautiful sunrise photo.


I just traded in my Grand Marquis for an F150 4x4. Long bed to hold an ATV and trailer tow package. I bought it specifically for retirement coming up in a year or two so I can get back out my favorite spots. If we're both in the area at the same time I'd be glad to give you a lift out to the Point when I go.

Fantastic Photos and Video!! Lots of great memories all around the point!

Great video!

Thanks for the offer D.A., but I'm afraid my traveling days are limited to work and back. Enjoy the new wheels...that should get you there.

Just look at those beautiful blueberry photos. My father could never
get enough of picking those berries. Guess that's the reason behind
his "Blueberry Man" hat.
