This week I visited Monterey and Carmel proceeding to Big Sur and beyond with a friend of many years who now lives in California. Elbert Benjamine’s description of Norman Astley includes Norman taking Elbert to Point Lobos at a place overlooking where T.H. Burgoyne wrote The Light of Egypt. So we went there and were welcomed by docents explaining where an author might have written a book at a place that could be viewed from above. They suggested that this overlook includes the likeliest possibilities.
