AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BAY Eric Bassham
Do you really need an introduction to our bahia, the site of numerous historical events, past and present?
The blend of inpouring runnels and vintage pools makes the current speed swift and deep through the Golden Gate and past the shallows and inlets where the tidal life washes on the shores of man and nature.
The delightful island parks are unpolluted by the urban auto rush but are within easy reach of the tired, harrassed, anxiety-plagued city-dweller. There exist bay shore shops with honest handicrafts for the mass-produced buyer.
The tidal life, whether human or animal, can be seen co-existing with highway nets. The tiny crabs surviving the power equipment of the humans find more homes in their marinas, and a driftwood art work by the side of the freeway symbolizes man's invasion of the bay and its conquest of him.
Portola is shaped by and reflects the bay's moods and hidden deeps. The bay shall always be broadcasting its message of calmed activity to the denizens of Portola. The bay will be a focus of common interest as long as it continues to exist; science and social studies classes delve into its mysteries, and poets and philosophers ponder its secrets.
And foggy memories of the bay and its Portola shall ever percolate into life.
