The Tribune (SLO) - - The Cambrian -

It is with sad­ness that I learned re­cently of Cubby Cashen’s de­par­ture from San Simeon Cove. Cubby not only ran his “The Sea For Your­self Kayak Ad­ven­tures” busi­ness at the cove, but he was an ex­traor­di­nary pro­tec­tor of ma­rine life.

I vol­un­teered last year as an Ele­phant Seal Am­bas­sador at the cove, which pre­sented chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tions with the com­bi­na­tion of ele­phant seals on the beach and many vis­i­tors, some of whom took risks that were un­safe. Cubby, in my opin­ion, while not an em­ployee of State Parks, served as a “care­taker” of the cove, in help­ing to pre­vent harm to ma­rine life and hu­mans alike.

I wish to thank Kathe Tan­ner, for her article in The Cam­brian (April 18) re­lated to Cubby and his ex­o­dus from the cove. I, for one, and I’m sure I speak for many, will miss Cubby, a pas­sion­ate pro­tec­tor of ma­rine life and animal life in gen­eral.

I’m so glad I was able to venture out on a kayak ex­cur­sion with Cubby last year; it was a fab­u­lous ex­pe­ri­ence, with a very knowl­edge­able and ex­pert kayaker. He will be missed!
