Photo of the Day: Sharon's By The Sea

Can a large bridge looming over an inlet be a picturesque place to have dinner? It turns out it can. Sharon's By The Sea is a pleasant place to dine in Noyo, California. (The food could have been better prepared when I last visited in 2007, though.) The bridge for Highway 1 crosses over the Noyo river as it enters the Pacific Ocean right over Noyo Harbor where Sharon's is located. At first I thought it was rather odd for such a nice view to be dominated by such a massive concrete structure. Then after settling in, I got over the initial feelings of oppressiveness and began to find the bridge added character to the view. Sometimes what I want in a view is to be completely isolated in nature, but there are other times when I find it interesting, even comforting, to be surrounded by reminders that I'm grounded in civilization.
