On the Waterfront

Most years we hold the annual Waterside publishing conference in San Diego’s Mission Bay, but this year we are holding it near East Shore State Park in Berkeley. Author, consultant, entrepreneur (and author of ‘elm’) Dave Taylor, attending the conference, took a walk along the waterfront this morning and posted some observations about this “lovely spit of land”:

There’s something delightfully relaxing about a harbor in early morning, and Berkeley’s harbor was peaceful, with a light mist over the glass-like still water, and a few early morning fishermen on the pier, trying their luck. I chatted with one of them and found that the prime catch is halibut, if they’re swimming in the harbor, or striped bass.
