Do you dream of living somewhere else?

I do.

While I love my sweet house and our neighborhood and friends, I’d much rather drink my morning coffee looking at this.

During my childhood and into the early years of my marriage I had the privilege to spend an inordinate amount of time on land that had not much changed from the days of the Chumash Indians and Spanish land grants.

25,00 acres of land to be precise, near  Gaviota Coast just north of Santa Barbara.

It had eight miles of pristine coast. And quite a few surfers who’d have liked to put feet on the those beaches. My brief moment of popularity in High School was due to those beaches.

Those days are gone leaving behind a deep and abiding appreciation of California coastal topography and land love.

A lovely thing about where I live in So Cal is the ability to have the  suburbs in your rear window within 5 minutes of leaving your driveway.

Lucky for me once a week Beauty takes riding lessons on a beautiful property in the hills behind our home
