The delights of urban camping

Here is the Office, Three Star Owl‘s nest away from nest on certain roadtrips, complete with cot and a TV tray table that serves as a desk, and a battery-powered lamp or two. <<

And here is the Cooper’s hawk who nests here each time I’ve stayed in this RV Resort.  It’s eating something fairly large, with pink feet — like a pigeon — and feathers and tiny shreds of meat are dropping down onto the empty campsite below.  Attracted by the predatory event, a gang of crows is circling, cawking, but the Coop’s is plucking calmly. >>

From 11am to 5pm on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, I’ll be at the San Diego Audubon Bird Festival in the Marina Conference Center on Mission Bay in San Diego, with wazzo-ware and beastie-ware in small but delectable quantities.  Come on by!

    Hi Allison,

    I’m a friend of Kate McKinnon’s and Andrew Thornton’s–and I live in San Diego. I’m hoping to stop by to see you and your beastie- and wazzoware tomorrow and/or Sunday. I would love a wee beastie or two of my own. Each time I’ve stayed at Kate’s I’ve drooled over her Shock-ware, which always seemed to be in use by someone else but me. Now’s my chance!

    Please come by, Doriot, if you’d like — I’d love to see you. I’m there from 11am both Saturday and Sunday, and I’ll be there until 5pm on Saturday. Sunday, not so long; maybe until about 2pm, when I need to start packing up. Marina Conference Center, Mission Bay, follow the small red and white signs from the parking lot. By the way, do you pronounce your T? I’ve been reading your name in my head without it…
