Bringing home closer

I am a Peace Corps volunteer serving in Poland. I only have praise and respect for your paper, which I find insightful, accurate, and intriguing.The article "On Sabbatical in a Kelp Forest," Sept. 25, prompts me to write. I have been in Poland more than 17 months now and had begun to miss my home (Pacific Grove, near Monterey, Calif.). This piece brings me a little closer to home. It brings back some wonderful memories of trips to Moss Landing with my family and of tide-pooling out in beautiful Monterey Bay. Paddy Laurance, Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, Poland
