The visibility was so fantastic on Monday, January 6 that I saw a "new" island. New for me at least! It was clearly visible from 38 miles off the coast of Palos Verdes.
At first I thought it was a ship but it did not move. Then I thought it might be a Google barge but I had not heard anything about that in the news. Plus it was fairly large-ish for a ship.
Turns out, it is the smallest island of the eight Channel Islands and it's called Santa Barbara. It is the southernmost island in the Channel Islands National Park.
Needless to say I took a bunch of photos as the sun went down.

My Rooney thoughts for November 23, 2014What a week this has been for America.  Of course, there is the weather in which Buffalo took a beating.  Ferguson, Missouri is braced for an announcement by a grand jury, but the biggest news is the President finally took action on immigration.  Frankly, I think he waited too long but then he had good reason to wait.How many times did he ask congress to move on immigration?  How much pleading did he do to get that body to govern, to move the country…See More
