Planning a Trip to California?

right back where I started from...
where bowers of flowers
bloom in the spring...
each morning at dawning
birdies sing at everything
a sun kissed miss said, "Don't be late!"
that's why I can hardly wait
open up that golden gate...
California Here I Come!!!!"
BG Desylva, Joseph Meyer, Al Jolson

If you're thinking about visiting California...
aside from Mammoth Lakes in the Eastern Sierras...
another must see is the California coast...
From the Central coast and north especially...
This is the coastline of Monterey Bay in Monterey, looking towards Lover's Point. 

I don't know about you...
but I get such a sense of peace being at the ocean...
the sheer expanse is breathtaking...

  1. Fantastic! I feel the same about the ocean. It is especially beautiful there. Enjoy your trip.

  2. hee hee...
    Even before reading your text, «Louis» guessed this as being Monterey/Carmel... :-)

  3. Oh - I so miss the ocean. I can sit for hours just looking at the waves. Enjoy every minute of your trip.

  4. Yes, it is a beautiful state and California has always been seductive!!

  5. Gorgeous!

    I have not been to California as of yet, but particularly the northern half appeals to me to see. Los Angeles? Not at all.

  6. I never thought of creating a bucket list, but if I did, a long, slow motorcycle ride down the coast with plenty of stops for photos, would probably be at the top.

  7. What a lovely shot.

  8. Fantastic view! Looking on your photo I´m planning a trip at once :)
