More Good Stuff on Omar Steele from John Vonderlin

Email John (benloudman@sbcglobal.net)

Hi June,

I forgot the most interesting reference to Omar Steele in the book, “Echoes from Gazos Creek Country.”

The author, Harvey Mowry, wrote that Omar Steele provided the lumber for the fog whistle building on Ano Nuevo Island. It describes how they waited until low tide, and then had to hustle the horse drawn wagons across the still wet sand so they could unload and return to the mainland before the tide came back in. I wouldn’t want to see somebody attempt that nowadays. Enjoy. John
