Big Sur Blues

V had business down in Big Sur this morning and I was happy to go along.  This is the Point Sur Lighthouse with the receding fog bank behind. The wind was coming up pushing the waves onto the beach. Fog, sea, and air. The Big Sur blues.



V's business took us to Nepenthe, a Big Sur landmark since 1949.  It was built by Bill and Lolly Fassett and is still run by the family.  Their son, Kaffe Fassett is well known by knitters and quilters for the vibrant and colorful designs he creates for the Rowan company and Westminster Fibers.  Although he makes his home in England, he comes to the area nearly every year and puts on terrific workshops for quilters.  I've been lucky enough to have attended a couple myself.

Big Sur is wild and legendary and romantic.  It is where people living somewhat under the radar sit side by side with painters, poets, writers, and tourists. 

In the future we will take you to see Deetjen's Big Sur Inn.  Pure romance.

In bocca al lupo. m & v

  1. Those blues are magnificent! Have you ever tried to capture their essence in one of your textile projects? Can't wait to see the next post about the Inn.

  2. As a description, "V's business" is intriguing. Hmmm, one wonders...a business in Big Sur, huh? Well, what IS it? Blues, blues, and more blues, how rich it all is.
