A response from a thank you sent to a donor. Printed with her approval.
You are very welcome. I have been enjoying “The Breeze” for years.
You always list the Audubon Field trips and other community events. Actually, you are the reason that I became a birder. Newly married, I moved up here from Culver City to be with my husband, saw the listing of the lectures and field trips welcoming beginners and said to John, “This sounds like an interesting lecture. Let’s go!” John, “I’ve been a VAS member for 17 years.” Estelle, “great! You can teach me all of the birds!!!” So, we both started from scratch knowing only mallards and blue jays which are really scrub jays and years later now are “Beginning Intermediate” birders. John Connor is my husband and he also sent money.
I also love the Harbor Police section.
Thank you again.
Mystery of Ventura’s Tide
The pull of our tide will invite you in,
In hopes of experiencing a Ventura memory.
View the Dawn in search of Pacific treasure,
Hinting to her, you are a swell of mystery.
She’s a secret pier that prolongs your stay,
Inviting your attention to liquid sunsets.
We are ocean waters of scenic moments,
A delightful way to discover California.

It is important to keep an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out.
