Hi!Thank you so much for our stay at the Bodie House, in the very interesting Monterey Bay area. We have enjoyed learning a little about the exploits of the Weston’s through your collection of books and other “stuff”. All the best for the future, From Kathleen and Neale Melbourne, Australia Gina/Kim,Thank you for a wonderful stay – 3 nights @ “Wildcat Hill” The Bodie House was a high point on a California trip, full of beauty and delights. Seeing Edward Weston’s home and darkroom was something I will always hold onto and be inspired by. Our best to your family…
Gina and Kim, Loved our stay at Bodie House. Ideal location for going to some of the area parks. The tile and artwork is beautiful and I love how you’ve incorporated nature into the decor (shells, rocks). Thanks for the tip on the Sea Harvest Restaurant super! Bernie and BillHolly, NY
Last month while I was doing my morning walk in the rain at Carmel River beach, I ran into Tania, she was wet and carrying a large back pack. She was “couch surfing” down to Los Angeles with her next stop down the coast past Big Sur. I offered her a place to dry off and keep her stuff safe and then drove her back to Point Lobos to spend the day.
this is Tania, the girl you brought home on that rainy day at the beginning of November, remember?:)
On a whim Jennifer Crane called to see if she could stay overnight in Bodie House, her flight back to NY had been canceled due to a snow storm. She stayed for 2 nights and spent the days roaming the coast of Carmel.
“Thank you again for your (and Kim’s) hospitality–my time there was definitely one of the highlights
(if not the highlight) of my time in California”.
I just wanted to write and let you know what a privilege it was meeting you last week. It is an honor to include Kim in my Developer Tray project. It was also such a personal thrill for me to be able to visit such a house so important in the history of photography. I think that it is wonderful how you both have kept it so true to how it was originally set up, the darkroom included.
