Dana Adobe /Dave Stamey Concert

Restoring and re-plastering the old adobe

What Captain Dana would have seen while standing in his living room.

What Captain Dana would have seen from his back (front?) porch.

What Captain Dana would have seen standing in his back (front?) yard looking back towards the house. 

What Captain Dana would have driven to town in.

The ghost in the air above the pepper tree is that of the Old Vaquero who once rode for Captain Dana.  And in the foreground,  new adobe bricks for the ongoing restoration. 

Stamey fans at the fund-raising concert.

Dave Stamey

 If you're not familiar with Dave's music, go to You Tube and watch a few of his videos: "The Old Vaquero," "Wheels," and "Come Ride With Me."  Lovely. And next year, if Dave's performing at the annual fund raiser for the adobe, come on out and see how much has been done to save this amazing bit of Old California.

Landlubbers! Boatzart in baywood
Concert at 12:00 baywood pier

instructions below are for the "paddle in" which starts from Morro bay maritime museum in five minutes (-5 minutes?).

A second concert is scheduled for August 28, 2011.

There will be many paddlers this day, but we will launch before many of them, so parking should be ok early.
