I Love Where I Live! - Love and Spectator at the Beach?

The only thing missing in this shot is our bottle of wine! Yes, I have to admit (the bottle of wine) was there...

I had intentions of being immersed in my surroundings (i.e. inspiration), while penning this blog. And, yes, my hopes did realize.

Can you imagine a Perfect Day at the Beach? What would it look like to you? Well, this is it!

I don't really know where to start. The sun was blazing: this side of perfect. Not too hot, nor eclipsed by those pesky coastal clouds. And the Beach... well, our beaches on the Central Coast are some of the best in the World. I've been to the Amalfi Coast, Sicily's beaches, those of France, Spain, Italy and, of course, those up along our Eastern Seaboard. They all have their beauty and uniqueness.

But... our Central Coast Beaches rank (in my opinion) among the top in the world. They are so pure and pristine. Get back to nature? You're there. Pure, clean, white sand - un cluttered by thoughtless littering? You're there. Waves upon waves of most anything you need...Beauty...Hope...Serenity? You're there.

Maybe it's the wine (yeah, we drank a bottle of our local Paso Robles' Red), but what I came away with was the realization that everything I yearn for, and the vacations I plan are actually - RIGHT HERE! Yep, the World's Best is right here in my own back yard.

I'm rethinking my annual trip abroad...
