I love California. I love the fact that I could be in the high Sierras on Monday and at the Pacific Ocean on Friday. What a great place to live. 2 hours to the mountains and 2 hours to the coast. Perfection. I had posted on Facebook a few weeks ago that I needed to touch the ocean again. It is so healing... body and soul. Just breathing the clean air feels good. In appreciation for some photography work that I did for the agency, the owners of Rico, Pfitzer, Pires and Associates Insurance Agency loaned us the use of their home in Capitola for the weekend. The house is located very near the beach... half way between New Brighton Beach and downtown Capitola. It is magnificent. This view is from the top of the cliff, just down the street. I can't wait to explore.
