carpinteria creek

Carpinteria Creek starts 4,690 feet above

Carpinteria in the Santa Ynez Mountains

and travels through town and Carpinteria State Beach

where it empties into the ocean. Carpinteria Creek

is one of the few non-channelized creeks in the area,

meaning that it has not been paved over for flood control.

This makes Carpinteria Creek the natural choice

for the effort to bring Steelhead Trout back from near

extinction. Spend an afternoon on the Eighth Street

footbridge, and you may spy one of the rainbow fish.

The variety of trees shading and sheltering the waterway

makes it a haven for bird watchers.

4

salt marsh nature park

Situated on the west side of town, the

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park is one of

the few remaining wetlands in California. This critically

important habitat encompasses 230 acres and includes

eight acres of a developed area with paths and

interpretative signs. Peaceful, serene and gorgeous,

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park teems with native

plant and animal life. (Keep an eye out for the Pigmy

Blue Butterfly.) Here’s a hint: Early mornings are the

best time for bird watching. Located on Ash Avenue

near Sandyland Road, there are docent-led tours on

Saturday mornings.

seal sanctuary

There’s a stretch of beach along the

Carpinteria coast that is closed from

December to May. It is where Harbor Seals come to

give birth and prepare pups for their own life at sea.

Situated east of Casitas Pier, between Carpinteria

Bluffs Nature Park and Carpinteria State Park, this

marvel of nature can be observed from the above

cliffs. Humans are welcome, canines are not. Seal

portola sycamore

One Carpinteria tree towers above all the

rest, and we don’t just mean in height. Documented

at over 250 years old, the Portola Sycamore

(western sycamore, Platannus racemosa) is located

on the lower extension of Sixth Street, east of Palm

Avenue. The trunk diameter is close to six feet and

its height is 78 feet. It is believed that this tree is the

only remaining one of a grove where Chumash Indians

constructed canoes when the Spanish explorer Gaspar

de Portola arrived.

A trail made of compacted decomposed granite

BELOW AND OPPOSITE PAGE, part of the fun in collecting sea

for apothecary bottles, the bases and necks of bottles, and a few

glass objects whose function or shape can only be imagined now.

love story delivered by the tide.

McGrath’s powerful collection helped arouse

the beach comber in Werts. The women first met

when their children attended school together in the

1990s, and McGrath later started a marketing business

with Werts’ husband. Five or six years ago,

when they were more acquaintances than friends,

Werts was given a glimpse of McGrath’s collection.

Her casual tendency to pick up the occasional piece

of sea glass while running on the beach quickly

spiraled into what she laughingly refers to as a

healthy neurosis.

“It’s a total win-win. There’s not a negative thing

about it,” Werts says. By collecting something that

started as someone’s trash and was slowly transformed

into her treasure, she considers the act a

beach clean up of the best kind.

McGrath concurs. “It’s the perfect combination

of man and nature. It’s a man made object; then it

becomes a jewel through nature.”

Through the years, Werts and McGrath have

roamed the beaches together, alone, and with other

friends and family members. They walk quickly

through the sandy patches, and slow down to scour

each rocky patch that the waves have exposed.

Sharing a glass hunt along the shore with people

they love heightens the experience. “It’s therapeutic

and bonding and meditative,” Werts says. “People

who really get the same rhythm are really fun to be

with. It’s like a dance.”

The love of the hunt has found both women ankle

deep in sand and salt water on foreign shores.

McGrath recently tolerated the puzzled looks of

local Slovenians as she collected glass along the

Adriatic Sea, and Werts has discovered that Costa

Rica can offer many fine shells but much less sea

women have added beach combing to travel itineraries,

Oh, [laughs] let me stop and think. That was a long time ago. I always wanted to be an

actress. I was one of those people who always knew what he or she wanted to do in life.

I went to college at Stephens College in Missouri and majored in theatre. As soon as I got

out of college I came to Los Angeles. I was very lucky, within a year I started working –

steadily. I’ve never not worked. There was a period time I stopped acting for five years and

I was producing. Then, I got an offer to do the show I do now [“The Bold and the Beautiful”].

But the crowds at Cleveland Browns Stadium and Carpinteria

Valley Memorial Stadium have two things in common: a love of

football and a love of linebacker Chris Gocong—the 27-year-old

CHS grad who went from crushing high school opponents for

the Warriors to strapping on the orange helmet of the Browns

and clashing with the likes of New England Patriots quarterback

Tom Brady, who Gocong threw to the field in his first NFL

sack.

Of his newest fans in Cleveland, Gocong says he enjoys

their zeal, and as a professional player, he performs for the

hometown crowd. He did the same for Philadelphia fans when

he played four seasons as a Philadelphia Eagle (2006-2010).

Cleveland has been a tortured but faithful football town, and

Gocong says he and teammates plan to make the city proud.

“It’s a huge football town. They need a team that’s gonna win it

all,” he says.

A six-year professional career has landed Gocong in the east,

THE

nOrM

The first time I watched photographer Dan Harding at work, he was

bobbing beneath the 40-foot-high rock arch on the east end of Anacapa Island. At

the time I didn’t know of Harding’s prowess as a lensmen. Six months later I ran into

him again on Anacapa, now fully appreciative of his nature photography.

The late ocean explorer Jacque Cousteau considered the Channel Islands as one

of his top 10 coldwater diving locales. He was an early inspiration to Harding, so it’s

not surprising the Channel Islands National Park is one of Harding’s favorite places

to shoot. A scuba diver since his teens, Harding built his own plexiglass housings

for Instamatic cameras in the 1960s, camping and diving when abalone and fish

populations were off the charts.

“I wanted to shoot underwater photos,” recalled Harding. “So I started making

my own housings.”

After college, he and his wife moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands to teach, and then

moved to Micronesia. Harding documented both tropical stops, but the Channel

Islands always tugged on his heart.

“My inspiration now is to showcase the recovery of the marine environment,”

continued Harding, “as we start to do a better job of protecting it.”

Some of Harding’s best imagery is with the subject halfway above and below

the surface of the water. Working with a 17 to 40mm wide-angle lens secured in an

Ikelite housing, Harding constantly searches out compositions with extremely clear

water. Something typically offered around the Channel Islands.

“I hope to capture fresh viewpoints that make the viewer think. I want my

audience to be challenged,” said Harding. “Sometimes I see a composition

that has likely existed for eons but has never been captured before. That is my

continuing quest.”

Story by Amy orozco

f the sound of silver

bangles is calling your

name or the eye longs to

catch a shimmer of light,

Carpinteria is an ideal

place to hunt down a

perfect piece of the

fashioned ore.

Find Gossamer-like

filigreed pieces to

celebrations of unadorned

sterling—and everything

in between. Rings with

precious stones, flirty

bracelets, pendants with

panache, and couture

accessories take up

temporary residence in

many Carpinteria shops.

Isn’t it time to give them a

permanent home in a jewelry

box to call their own?

carpinteria creek

Carpinteria Creek starts 4,690 feet above

Carpinteria in the Santa Ynez Mountains

and travels through town and Carpinteria State Beach

where it empties into the ocean. Carpinteria Creek

is one of the few non-channelized creeks in the area,

meaning that it has not been paved over for flood control.

This makes Carpinteria Creek the natural choice

for the effort to bring Steelhead Trout back from near

extinction. Spend an afternoon on the Eighth Street

footbridge, and you may spy one of the rainbow fish.

The variety of trees shading and sheltering the waterway

makes it a haven for bird watchers.

salt marsh nature park

Situated on the west side of town, the

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park is one of

the few remaining wetlands in California. This critically

important habitat encompasses 230 acres and includes

eight acres of a developed area with paths and

interpretative signs. Peaceful, serene and gorgeous,

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park teems with native

plant and animal life. (Keep an eye out for the Pigmy

Blue Butterfly.) Here’s a hint: Early mornings are the

best time for bird watching. Located on Ash Avenue

near Sandyland Road, there are docent-led tours on

Saturday mornings.

seal sanctuary

There’s a stretch of beach along the

Carpinteria coast that is closed from

December to May. It is where Harbor Seals come to

give birth and prepare pups for their own life at sea.

Situated east of Casitas Pier, between Carpinteria

Bluffs Nature Park and Carpinteria State Park, this

marvel of nature can be observed from the above

cliffs. Humans are welcome, canines are not. Seal

Watch volunteers typically are monitoring activities Carpinteria City Beach is the perfect place to do it.

during daylight in seal season.

You can kayak out to the reef for some snorkeling with

the marine life and say “hi” to some dolphins on your

portola sycamore

One Carpinteria tree towers above all the

rest, and we don’t just mean in height. Documented

at over 250 years old, the Portola Sycamore

(western sycamore, Platannus racemosa) is located

on the lower extension of Sixth Street, east of Palm

Avenue. The trunk diameter is close to six feet and

its height is 78 feet. It is believed that this tree is the

only remaining one of a grove where Chumash Indians

constructed canoes when the Spanish explorer Gaspar

de Portola arrived.

way there. A leisurely swim out to the summer floats

or sitting in the sand and watching it all, the choices

are endless and yours to make.

coastal vista trail

A trail made of compacted decomposed granite

that winds with the curves of land and sea

is perfect for a casual bike ride or walk. Though the

trail is short, eventually the trail will extend along the

entire Carpinteria coast. Enjoy the mountain and ocean

views; count White Tail Kites; or witness a seal pup

birth. Access the trail from the Bluffs parking lot at the

foot of Bailard Avenue.
