During the late 60’s, I used to work on San Clemente Island, on the U.S. Navy radar and fire control range.
I sat in a small hut on a bluff above the channel, with little to do but radio in the occasionally requested coordinates, read from my theodolite scope, look out at the beautiful Catalina Channel, watch the Gray Whales migrate and read Camus. It’s that view of the channel, looking eastward toward a storm forming over the southern California mainland, that I recall in this work. Camus might be in there too, although I’m not sure where.
