Meade Fischer presents photos and his newest book, "With the Sea Beside Me"

Meade Fischer will present his newest book, "With the Sea Beside Me: An Intimate Guide to California’s Central and North Coast".

Meade will cover the many wonderful outdoor experiences available camping, kayaking, hiking and exploring the California coast from Santa Barbara to the Oregon border.

This mile-by-mile guide contains recommendations for brewpubs, kayak launches, back roads and parks, as well as his personal perspective on the places he describes. The book focuses on spots not many people know about, protected areas and scenic locations.

He will share stories and adventures from his numerous years of recreational travel. There will be a running slide show with his beautiful photos from places along the coast.

Meade Fischer is a freelance writer, photographer and the author of several travel and outdoor adventure books. He is a longtime environmental activist and volunteer and lives in Watsonville.

6:30 PM: Social mingling time with healthy refreshments provided

7:00 PM: Meade will start his presentation

    I was impressed out how well Meade knows the coast, the best camping sites and places to eat-even down to the mile marker number where the trail begins!
