    I also love California – I’ve been there twice. However, I do love Florida – not by Orlando though, rather down farther by Tampa and the Keys.

    Beautiful pic. I’ve never been to California. Hopefully I’ll be able to go one day soon. I live on the east coast where rains and snows. I’m very jealous. 🙂

    Oh I am so jealous! I LOVE California and always said that the stork accidently dropped me on his way to CA…I live and grew up in Utah (too cold for me in the winters). My favorite place ever is the beach! Beautiful picture!

    My daughter just got back from a trip to Redondo Beach, she fell in luv but thought it was rather expensive.
    She walked in the Pacific Ocean for the first time…lucky her!

    That’s a lovely picture. I have a picture that is quite similar on my vision board. It is one of my dreams to live in ca.

  19. Trina C says:

    That picture makes me remember my time living in SoCal. I attended Loyola Marymount University and lived in Playa for awhile. I do miss the wonderful May weather that we had down there. Here in Seattle it is gray and rainy.

    thanks for letting me dream…

    Gorgeous! Want to be there NOW! Well, at least Lake Michigan, which is my next best option and significantly closer.

    Thanks for the brief reprieve from inland.
