Fruitvale in the Far
Do you remember the sea lion pup nicknamed Fruitvale? He somehow made his way to the busy 880 freeway in Oakland, California during morning rush hour traffic,and was discovered near the Fruitvale exit on the freeway. Taken to the Marine Mammal Rescue Center, he was mildly malnourished, but was revived at the Center. Now he's been released back to the ocean at the Farallon Islands. Farallon
means "rocks jutting from the sea," but I can't helping thinking it sounds like far and alone. It's not SO far from where I live and I'd love to visit.
Til then, we can read about this windswept and rocky islands by paddling this way: Farallones.org

That sounds kinda like a story that might be featured in Nat. Geographic magazine, don't you think??
