How to Showcase California? Now THAT is a Contest!
The picture to the left is one I took from one of my favorite walks in Laguna Beach. This path takes you from Main Beach up about 2 miles along the water and cliffs. There is nothing better for putting things in perspective as watching the waves come over the rocks.
California is at it's heart a contradiction. It's trite to talk about it's varied beauty....but let's go ahead and do it anyway! It will be fun!
You all know that it's been said that you can drive from the beach to the mountains in a matter of hours. That you can spend the morning surfing the waves and the afternoon surfing the ski slopes. It's true! There is natural beauty everywhere you look and in every possible form.
But the natural gifts of California creates what is truly special about living here.....the lifestyle. The entire state has lovely weather, we are fortunate! The inhabitants can choose what they want to do on a daily basis...back to the idea of beach in the morning and snow in the evening. That is freedom! I love the Northern part of California every bit as much as the Southern part. We have some of the most amazing National Parks as well...Yosemite, Sequoia, Redwoods. Something for everyone!
