No matter how many times I travel to California, I always marvel at the sheer beauty of it. From LA to Monterey the scenery is just awesome. The smell of the sea air, the friendliness of its people California is just stunning. The weather is just awesome as well; the ruggedness of the ocean. I love traveling down on Highway 1. Some of the locals would tell me it is faster on 101. Why would I want to do that I want to enjoy the air, the smell and the absolutely gorgeous coastline with water colors ranging from Sea Foam Green to Emerald Green to Turquoise to the deep Azure blue. If I ever win the lottery I would buy a little place in Pacific Grove which is a small coastal town in between Monterey and Carmel. I just love this place. Please enjoy these photos.
