It just keeps calling us back. The sea. So raw and beautiful. Especially in Northern California. I hope it stays this way forever.

Redwoods provide a dark canopy and little glimpses of the sky.

Looks like a bear sniffed something out..
Bear bite. Ocean life can be harsh.

Surrounded by beauty
Goodnight, sweet ocean.
Coming from Utah where there is such a large chunk of public land, California took a little getting used to.
Give me lots of yellow, green and purple, please!
You mean, we can’t park wherever we want? No pulling up right onto the beach for the night? Hm. Guess it’s not the 1960’s anymore. Well, I suppose that’s the price you pay for all of the beauty this state has to offer. There’s a reason so many people live here! It’s absolutely breathtaking at every turn.
We got to San Diego on Terry’s birthday and my cousin Shelley trekked down from the Grand Canyon to spend Memorial Day Weekend with us. What a treat!
