Beverly Hardy of Morro Bay, CA turned 80 last April 2006,
and is darn proud of it! She confessed to me that it’s now okay for the
grocery clerk to carry her bags to the car. A California State Park docent
who has worked with the Morro Bay Museum of Natural History for 25 years, Bev
has volunteered and served on many committees over the years. She is
passionate and tireless when it comes to serving her causes. On September
9, 2006, at her request, I took Bev kayaking on the bay. We paddled over
to Morro Rock to see the Otter family, then on to the sand spit where we beached
across from Morro Rock. We strolled along the ocean side viewing dozens of
Pelicans in the surf, in the air, and on the beach. With camera ready, I
watched Bev stealthily close the distance between her and the Pelicans.
Once back on shore, she exclaimed, “I had a ball!” Here are a few moments with
my adventuring friend.
