Re: “Aldaron's Walkabout

Thank you Heidi Walters for your thoughtful and well-crafted article about "Aldaron's Walkabout." In my opinion, you very adeptly captured two precious and unique personalities in your article, that of my husband Aldaron Laird and that of our magical and ever-changing resource, Humboldt Bay. I very much appreciate the "human interest" avenue you took in your chronicle of Aldaron's Humboldt Bay sojourn and mapping as opposed to lingering upon the potential "doom and gloom" we might expect to occur due to global warming around the bay's perimeter. I am the one who sees him come in after a day in the field, after slogging through salt marsh and mud, or after paddling in his dagger kayak for 3-4 hours, sometimes against currents, wind, and tides that have come about willy nilly, as much as he tries to plan for the tidal elements and weather. He has slogged around the bay over 70 miles and kayaked countless others, with a couple of sloughs to go when the weather breaks later this week after our big storms. His bay "ground-truthing" is to complete this week and the report will be forthcoming soon to share with agencies, interested parties, and the public. This has not just been a labor or science but a labor of love regarding Humboldt Bay. I feel blessed to hear his extraordinary stories about what he has seen in the field and to view the beauty of his incredible photographs of this extraordinary journey and look forward to his future opportunity to share them with our community. Thanks Northcoast Journal for your interest in this story and to Heidi Walters for your extraordinary reporting and creative writing about Aldaron's Walkabout. Christy Laird
