Since shortly after his death in a plane crash off Coral Street beach there has been an anual get together the second Sunday of October. That would be this weekend coming up. Info found here.

John Denver died flying an experimental plane called a Long EZ which is a Burt Rutan design. While reaching for the fuel valve he inadvertantly slammed into the water about 150 yards off the Coral Street Beach here in Pacific Grove. It’s also one of my favorite dive spots.

Anyhoo. It looks like this weekend coming up will be the get together. Maybe I’ll grab the girls and walk on down there for grins.

Here is more information on the plane crash.

Here’s a Long-EZ, it’s a nice plane.
