Jill Posener posted a great article on her blog – Albany Bulb RIP and a wonderful collection of photos dating back some 10 years where she shares her experiences about a place where she felt she and “many others, could pretend, as we ambled along an unkempt trail a mile into the Bay, that we were still living free”.

It was great to look back in time at a place I discovered just by chance some 8 years ago. But it also felt like I was saying goodbye.

In those 8 years I haven’t missed but one or two days of my morning walks with Toby and Cody. It was my place to get away – a place where I could either find solitude in the endless winding trails or hang out with friends on the beach or plateau. There was always something new and different –  from the gorgeous bay views to strange messages found carved into driftwood.  But that is the Bulb – beautifully, strange – a unique place of imagination and discovery.
