pacocnI like the ocean almost as much as I like the mountains. All of my senses are on alert as we come driving over the canyon road. First I spot the water and then I can smell it. As we pull up and roll down the window I can hear it and feel it and, if the wind is right, I can taste the salt. All that before we get out of the car! A couple of hours at the ocean and my body and spirit are totally at peace.

I have lots of experience with the Pacific Ocean, not so much with the others. Here is a shot taken at the end of December. This is along the Pacific Coast Highway just north of Malibu. It was about 65 degrees on this day, no clouds, with just a light breeze. Beautiful.
