Travel Theme: Peaceful

We happily chant “Never a bad day at the beach!” as often as we can, my family and I. As we round that first bend on Highway 101 eagerly seeking a first glimpse of the expansive Pacific, a collective and audible group sigh escapes from our lips and the the sense of calm we so eagerly seek begins to set in. I can hear it now: the crashing surf, the calling gulls. I can smell it too: the salty musty scent of the sea breeze. Ah, the peace. It’s lovely here.
