SAD TO LEARN OF CUBBY’S DEPARTURE
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!
