There is a big old cypress tree on the street side of the family beach house in Capitola. It's been there for as long as Roger can remember. I wish I had photos from 1938 when Roger's grandparents bought the house. I bet the tree could be seen then too. I would love to know what it looked like 77 years ago. This is what it looked like last week.
The tree has been trimmed over
the years, but it had been quite some time since the last trimming. So
when we were there last week, we had a tree trimmer come out and take a
look. He saw something that we had somehow overlooked. One of the very
big branches was resting heavily on the roof. Uh-oh. It absolutely had
to be cut.
Well, we hope this change will be as good for the tree as it is for the roof.
