2010 California Coastal Views Film Festival

Greetings!

Once again, California Coastal Views is hosting a video festival made up of scenes of the California coast which appear on YouTube. For the next month, I'll be looking on Google Earth, and querying entrants from the previous festival, to assemble here the nominees.

Eligible videos must show the California coast, must not have competed in previous CCV festivals, and be loaded on YouTube no later than July 15th, 2010. No real estate sale promotions or chamber of commerce ads. The divisions and categories will be developed to account for the length (shorts, up to five minutes, feature length) and amount of features (music, transitions, advanced editing). I'm currently scanning Google Earth starting at Wright's Beach and heading north to the Oregon border. Then, I'll start again south to Mexico. Nominees are invited to submit links directly to me at gfearon@sonic.net. Deadline for submission is October 31, 2010. Finalists will be announced on December 31st, and winners on January 31st, 2011.

This post will be updated with nominees, in divisions and categories as they are developed.

Saturday, June 26th, Doran Beach Park, HandsAcrossThe Sand



































Greetings!

Today, Coastwalk California organized a rally at Doran Beach Park, in cooperation with HandsAcrossTheSand, to protest oil exploration off the coasts of the nation, and to support Congressperson Lynn Woolsey'd bill (HR223) to expand the National Marine Sanctuary from Bodega Bay to Point Arena.

Here is a link to some photos of the event: Hands Across The Sand

Noel Robinson's Memorial Service, Jenner, California



Greetings!

I attended a memorial service out at Jenner last Saturday for a local surfer who died recently while surfing in Mexico. His friends and family were there, and I took some photos and audio. It was a touching event, and I know you'll appreciate it.

Another Blogger Helping Us Enjoy Walking

Greetings!

Lynn Millar has alerted us to a post on her blog about the Sonoma Coast (Walking in Sonoma County, Mostly and Her Blog), and I wanted to pass them on to our readers. It's a useful place to find links to many other walking-related blogs and websites, and I recommend it highly. Here's hoping she will continue to provide us with such high-quality insights and connections within the walking and hiking community.
