The sheep and the sea, and a dog

This evening I've been reading about The Sea Ranch, an area in Sonoma County, California where people try 'to live lightly on the land'.

It was developed in the 1960s by a group of architects, and apparently their environmentally-sensitive approach is still drawn on today. The houses are nestled into rather than carved out of the landscape - no manicured lawns or picket fences here, just grasslands, which are kept under control by sheep. Which brings me to their motif...

which reminded me of the sheep's head peninsula logo...

which reminded me of this photo that my brother took on the Sheep's Head...


Awww...

This sign suggests all kinds of things. But it's solid advice nevertheless - never bring the dog anywhere if you don't plan on coming back. Or your iPod.

I wonder - you know the way people intending to commit suicide remove their glasses? Do they leave their iPod safely at home, or do they take it with them, have it play their favourite music to help in their last seconds?

Hmm. Unless the glasses thing is a myth...
