What’s new at the harbor seal rookery?

Pup Count

No pups yet. Typically, we see seal pups beginning late January, though earlier births are not unusual.

eal atch looks di erent this year as do many things during the pandemic. Volunteers are focusing on monitoring the east and west ends of the closed beach area, advising beachgoers who are not familiar with the beach closure ordinance of its purpose, and that the best view of the seals is from the overlook above. When visiting the seal overlook, there will be fewer docents, although volunteers will be doing counts three times a day from the overlook area. Visitors can help by remembering to wear a mask, staying at least six feet apart and limiting their viewing time to allow others a comfortable space. eal atch can al ays use more volunteers and schedules are flexi le ased on what the volunteers wish to contribute—particularly as volunteers focus on low tide beach watch.

Origami Xmas

Christmas came folded /an origami bird bright bits/ folded inward songs, joy, smell of pine tucked away/ waiting another season/ wings open/ catching air I wrote the poem because Christmas, a celebration I love, passed like a will o’ the wisp, a song and dance show played out on an old black and white TV. All its good will and cheery promise slipped by like a distant parade—lights, color, carols viewed from afar. Who knows when all this will end? Sequestered like monks, fearing unmasked faces, beaten down by rising Covid-19 numbers, ICUs set up in tents, circling ambulances, lonely gravesites, neglected children, the long wait to breathe free again. The promised vaccine almost illusory, sporadic shots here and there, vials like fragile frozen irds aiting to fly. We Americans are a roving people. Our country is spacious, room to wander, in and out of doors, in woodlands, parks, on the seashore, the aisles of stores, cafes. Cooped up, we want to break free. Which accounts for the heartbreaking rise of disease in so many places. Longing for freedom, we ensnare ourselves and others. It is hard to make a freedom-loving people live in foxholes when the air outside seems fresh and clean. And so, we emerge and congregate and spread the infection. It’s unfortunate that public health priorities and economic recovery priorities got so intertwined that neither came out on top. Driving down Linden, seeing all the shuttered businesses, puts a crimp in my heart. When will they come back? Will they come back at all? I’m trying to prepare myself for the changed landscape when we finally emerge from our caves. In the new terrain, beloved businesses may be missing, as much as victims of Covid-19 as friends who have fallen ill. My friend Olivia, who lives in a northern California county, just emerged from a week in the hospital with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She survived Covid-19, ut the horrors of overflo ing hall ays full of sick people, moaning, crying, dying, workers unrecognizable in Hazmat suits, sent her into a spiral of misery.

“I’m trying to prepare myself for the changed landscape when we finally emerge from our caves. In the new terrain, beloved businesses may be missing, as much as victims of Covid-19 as friends who have fallen ill.”

And yet we congregate and spread the killing germs. We know that people can be spreaders even when they have no symptoms. What recklessness, sense of entitlement, perversity causes people to throw all caution to the wind and gather together? A preacher attracting large crowds in Los Angeles maintains mask wearing restricts his religious freedom, hich to me defies comprehension. ho me the place in the Bible that forbids mask wearing. Where’s the community caring in such gathering? Where’s the brotherly love? We are all living with a terrible feeling of suspension, normalcy on hold, as we contemplate more months of what feels a lot like imprisonment. The disease holds us hostage as it continues to ravage our towns and cities. It’s a cold dark season even here in “sunny” California, and we long for brightness, good news, longer days. Relief. It doesn’t help that the cold clamps down just as the days get longer. Shouldn’t longer hours of sunlight bring more warmth? Even the season drags its feet. It’s due to “seasonal lag.” Air and land continue to lose heat faster than the sun’s heat arrives with longer daylight. The land and ocean absorb the sun’s energy and release it slowly over time. Warmth will return, but in its own planetary time. The arrival of spring seems so distant, it’s like looking through the wrong end of binoculars. But it’s out there, the next good thing, like the vaccine. Patience is required. Along with more hunkering down.

Planting good business roots: Island View Nursery CVN

TRADE SECRETS M E G A N WA L D R E P On a bright Friday morning, I pulled into the parking lot of Island View Nursery, past natural rock fountains, vibrant “Sticks on Fire” succulents and lush green foliage. I asked the friendly guy behind the outside counter—a structure that resembles a small temple—if the owner Nacho Mendez was available. “Here he comes now,” he said, pointing to a man walking towards me. Nacho and I waved to each other and did the obligatory six feet apart greeting before he led me to a ta le near the tallest fiddle leaf fig tree had ever seen. In talking with Mendez, I learned that the key to his success was simple: work hard. “I moved here in 1991 from Mexico, and I started working, but not with what I wanted to do. Because when you come from another country and want a better lifestyle, you don’t focus on anything in particular. You do whatever you can to survive.” Nacho worked at a restaurant, then at a landscaping business and several other jobs before he landed at Island View ursery. t first, the nursery as like any other job, but soon Mendez realized he liked working with plants. He started with weeding, watering plants, repotting

Several years passed and then in 2013, Mendez’ boss decided to retire, and he took the opportunity to buy the nursery. “I’m very grateful to the previous owner of Island View. He helped me to be who I am these days,” said Mendez. “When I first started orking on sales ith him, my English was poor, but he did not give up on me.” Mendez also credits his co-workers over the years—many of which he considers good friends. “The people who work with me today are very important to keep this adventure going.” Working from the ground up was great training for Mendez. To his younger self he’d advise, “study what you’re getting into. o to school or find a ay to gain an education. And whatever you do, do it with all your heart.” Working at the nursery Mendez received the education he needed to

become a boss. He saw what worked and what didn’t, including the number of employees the previous owner kept on sta . f your payroll is igger than your income, you have to do something,” he said. When Mendez took over the business, the first thing he did as cut the payroll by over half. He made sure the remaining employees were well-versed in numerous duties. ach sta mem er is kno ledgeable on plants, can ring up customers, care for the plants and so on. Having employees who can pick up the slack when needed is essential to his model of running a successful business. For Mendez, working hard at Island View Nursery is his passion. When he bought the nursery, he thought: “I love what I do, so I’m going to give it a try. What could happen? I can lose whatever I have, but I’ll start over again.”

Locals create a safe space for evacuated horses BY NOE PADILLA

Over the last 30 years, the Santa Barbara Equine Assistance and Evacuation Team (SB Equine Evac) has been working to save animals from danger whenever the county faces natural disasters. The nonprofit initially started in 1990 after the Painted Cave Fire burned through the Santa Ynez Mountains and ravished local ranches. Horse owners were able to save around 350 horses from perishing in the fire. fter this experience, those same horse owners realized there was a need for an organized group that focused on evacuating large animals during natural disasters. Shortly after, the SB Equine Evac organization was born and set their base of operations at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara. The showgrounds allow the organization to use 600 barn stables when they animals need to be evacuated. Over the years, the SB Equine Evac has become an important emergency response group, helping to evacuate animals in almost every major natural disaster that has hit Santa Barbara County since the Painted Cave Fire. “We work very closely with the Santa Barbara animal services, they have a hotline they activate hen e have a fire that directly routes to us,” said Carpinteria resident Ronda Hathaway, vice president of the Santa Barbara Equine Assistance and Evacuation Team. “We’re pretty well prepared to respond to any emergency.” Their biggest moment of aid came during the Thomas Fires back in 2017, when they evacuated 1,300 animals out of the fiery mountains and housed them

When the fire as in entura County, e ere a mutual aid group. nd as the fires kept moving and kept encroaching, we got involved with the evacuation of horses o of hepard Mesa, and then e helped with the evacuation at the polo grounds. We also helped evacuate some animals

from the zoo because of the air quality,” said Hathaway. “We were out there for 28 days, 24/7.” Since the Thomas Fires, the SB Equine Evac has been actively helping the community—helping during the Woolsey Fire, Maria Fire and more. Currently, SB Equine Evac has started a new major project to renovate the Earl Warren Show-

grounds. In early 2020, SB Equine Evac raised over $500,000 in donations and began renovations at the showgrounds. So far, they’ve brought improvement to the Samuel E. Kramer Arena, Mountain ie rena and l Camino rena. hey plan to continue renovations throughout 2021. To learn more, volunteer or donate, visit sbequineevac.org.

Laurel Thomas brings slow fashion to her Boho-chic brand

CVN

MADE IN CARPINTERIA B R E N D A TA N Since the 1960s, the Bohemian style has phased in and out of fashion trends. However, for Laurel Thomas, the artist behind Sapphire Gypsy Chic, the look has always been her signature style. “When people stop me on the street to ask where I get my embellished coats from, I tell them I made and designed them myself,” she said. After years of being cajoled by her friends, Thomas began making and selling her unique and artistic coats for other people. Thomas’ coats are unique, one-ofa-kind statement pieces that are easy to wear. “I wear mine with jeans or leggings,” she said. “I throw on one of my gypsy coats and I’m instantly dressed up!” For the last four years, Thomas has upcycled and refashioned coats for her Sapphire Gypsy Chic line. Thomas’ upbringing in a creative and ecologically mindful family fomented her love for upcycled goods. Growing up, her grandfather ould find random decor at garage sales and make them into lamps, giving utility to decorative pieces. “Years ago, skateboarding had just become popular and e couldn t a ord one, she recalled. “My grandfather found an old metal skate, took it apart, found a board and put wheels on both ends. That thing was faster than anybody else’s skateboard. All the kids wanted to ride it instead of their fancy boards!” From her mother, Thomas learned to refurbish and recycle clothing. “My mother would reupholster furniture and take uttons and zippers o discarded clothing for future sewing projects,” she said. “I always thought that it was fascinating to be able to breathe new life

Sapphire Gypsy Chic is the slow fashion, upcycle brand of Laurel Thomas. into something old and tired and make it wonderful and usable again.” The idea of repurposing, refashioning and recycling has always permeated Thomas’ life. When she danced Flamenco, one of her dance teachers showed her to take used dresses, cut them up and add fringe and ru es. hen she as the artistic director of a drum and dance troupe, Sirens of the Sapphire Moon, she learned to take recycled materials apart, add beads and baubles and create new costumes. When she made jewelry, she liked to find vintage e elry parts and rework them into new necklaces and earrings. Thomas also has an inculcated love for vintage, well-made and well-loved clothing and fabrics. “I love picking up items that some would see as junk,” she said. “The word ‘upcycling’ is relatively new, but people have been doing it before it became a thing. It is something that I have always done and grew up with, the concept of fixing hat you have and revising it. For Thomas, upcycling materials just makes sense. “It doesn’t make sense to

go to a mall where I see racks and racks of the same cheap quality clothes that fall apart and then end up in a landfill, she noted. “What do you do with cheap polyester that doesn’t last and falls apart easily? I like good quality fabrics that have lived before and are worth making a second comeback. At thrift stores, I can

find ell made items that ere meant to last. Slow fashion for me, all the way!” lo fashion is a term that definitely applies to Thomas’ meticulously and organically crafted pieces. To make a coat, she has to take things apart before piecing them together into a new design. “It’s like an artistic puzzle,” she said. “People think that I own a fancy sewing machine, but I actually use an old Brother that I bought for $25 on a swap site. I also do a lot of the sewing by hand. A lot of work goes into each one of these refashioned coats.” Thomas starts the creation process y figuring out the ack design. rom there, she works her way around. “The pieces just seem to design themselves,” she said. don t kno ho to explain it, it just happens that way. I don’t follow any rules. I’m compulsive and selftaught. I don’t really consider myself a seamstress, I just know how to put things together creatively and cohesively. When you are an artist, you can envision what something can become rather than what it actually is and then create something special, fun and unique.” To purchase one of Thomas’s custom coats, visit sapphiregypsychic.etsy.com or follow her on Instagram at @sapphire_gypsy_chic.

Rethink your resolution

CVN

WELLNESS WARRIOR LEAH HARDING New Year’s Resolutions are overrated. Statistics show that 92% of New Year’s resolutions are destined for failure. Why? Most New Year’s resolutions involve drastic changes in your day-to-day life. rastic changes are difficult to stick to and simply ait for you to have one eak moment... then boom. Resolution failure number 707,313,100,042. For the majority of resolutioners, their goals will revolve around diet and/or exercise. Unfortunately, when not spelled out clearly and in doa le chunks, the resolution is destined to fail. or example, if you are not orking out, ut decide your resolution is to ork out five days a eek, you re not setting yourself up well to meet this goal. It’s too much too soon. Start with small, attainable mini goals that lead to the resolution. The more often you succeed, the more you will want to keep succeeding and push yourself. Another way to approach this would be to try to start a new habit in tandem with something you’re already doing or could easily do. An example of this would be to turn the five minutes you currently spend taking your dog out to pee, into a minute alk ith the dog in the morning and evening. Or maybe you want to eat better. How do you picture yourself eating better? What does “eating better” even mean? You need to clearly define what your resolution is and what it means to you. o keep yourself on the side of success, don t choose unattaina le or unlikely resolutions. or example, if you hate kale, don’t try to incorporate it into all of your meals for the next year. Need help getting started? Try writing five to di erent mini goals and then rank each of them on a scale of one to in ho confident you are that you ll complete the task a one ould e that kale above, a 10 is something you’re already close to achieving . nce you ve ranked all of your ideas,

“If you really want to succeed with a New Year’s Resolution, clearly define what your goal looks like and write out several easy to complete steps to get there or use a current habit as a taga-long addition.”

Edward Coyle’s Cerca Del Mar dream PART 1 OF 2

Editor’s note: This nugget of Carpinteria history was written by Lea Boyd and originally published in the Summer 2010 edition of Carpinteria Magazine. To the east of the yawning mouth of Carpinteria Creek, a cluster of campsites hosts visitors from up and down the coast, people who pitch tents, roast marshmallows and relish the gritty sand between their toes. Little do these campers know that their temporary slice of beachside property once held an exclusive beach club called Cerca del Mar, the pride of a little beach town with cosmopolitan dreams. Hundreds of locals fixed their hopes on the Cerca del Mar in the late 1920s, but its brief blaze of glory turned to a flicker and eventually fizzled altogether. In 1927, Carpinteria was modernizing and expanding while impressive crops of walnuts, lima beans and lemons drove its growing economy. The safe and welcoming beach had been discovered, and visitors parked along the dunes to camp for weeks or months of the summer. Edward B. Coyle had arrived in town the year before, convincing locals that the seaside town needed an exclusive social club, a pleasure pier and cottages to house sea-seeking visitors from the stifling interior of the state. Construction of the great clubhouse began in 1927, and residents eagerly anticipated the opening of Cerca del Mar, a venue that the Carpinteria Herald reported “seems to be destined to become the live spot of this section of the two counties, Santa Barbara and Ventura.” As if foreshadowing future complications, the first of many snags caught the project before construction was complete. Financial backing for the club fell through, and Coyle was left with building costs far beyond his means. Local residents, however, stepped in and invested in the project—one that seemed destined to succeed. When the doors of Cerca del Mar Clubhouse swung open on Aug. 25, 1928, orchestra music poured out and hundreds of dinner guests poured in. Santa Barbara’s newspaper The Morning Press gushed over the opening. “In a colorful Spanish atmosphere and amid a festive carnival spirit, approximately 1,400 revelers attended the formal opening of Santa Barbara County’s newest beach club, the beautiful Cerca del Mar at Carpinteria, last night.” “The new club, designed throughout in Spanish style, was the mecca for guests from all parts of the county, Ventura, Hol-

80- by 100-foot ballroom, a dining room that comfortably seated 150 guests, a kitchen and a large lounge. The second story housed offices and social rooms as well as the spacious veranda. Memberships were sold for $100 a family, and only paid members and their invited guests were eligible to enjoy the facilities at the exclusive club. A short pier was built in front of the clubhouse, but longterm plans for the seven-acre Cerca del Mar property included an extension of the pier as well as construction of tennis courts, a swimming pool, a bathhouse and locker-rooms, 60 beach cottages, and a 100-room hotel. Fueled by the dazzling opening of the clubhouse, Carpinteria’s future as a beachside resort seemed certain. The summer of 1928 became fall, and reports of Cerca del Mar continued to glow. Labor Day drew 2,000 visitors to the new clubhouse, where a bathing girl revue and an orchestra performance delighted the massive crowd. In the following months, The Morning Press

regularly reported on Cerca del Mar luncheons, dinner parties, teas and bridge club meetings attended by the who’s who of Carpinteria families, such as the Catlins, Thurmonds, Bailards, Shepards and Treloars. Then, on the morning of Dec. 26, Coyle, president of Cerca del Mar Club, was found dead in his bed, the victim of what was believed to be heart failure. With Coyle’s ambitions in the morgue, the certain success of Cerca del Mar began to fade.
