A Similar View to Home's

To close out these series of posts, I want to show you a picture of the Pacific Ocean. I've never seen it from the American side until that moment. Although not technically true, it felt like I was standing at the edge of my country. Despite an expanse of water, I felt a little more confined. Freedom of movement--only within four time zones. It was a humbling experience.

I walked in just far enough to say that I've been in the ocean. I'm not a big fan of the ocean. I much prefer the Great Lakes--less sea weed and nasty critters. So now that I can say that I've lived in the Gulf, swam in the Atlantic, sailed the Great Lakes, and stood in the Pacific. I'm not done with this world just yet...

It sounds like you had an awesome time. I am really wishing I had the extra cash, and time off, to head to CA for a week or so.
