If anything new, wacky, crazy, unusual, or just downright wierd happens, it usually happens in California first! But, even though they call it the land of fruits and nuts, it is a beautiful place! I’ve not been anywhere that compares to it, although I do find my new home of North Carolina quite appealing, it’s no California.

Californians spend a great deal of money to protect their natural resources. Everywhere that we went in California, especially around the LA area, there were signs indicating what each of the stores were doing to conserve energy. Perhaps this was in reponse to the rolling blackouts last summer, but at least they are doing something.

We went to Big Sur and then up towards Carmel. The sights along The Pacific Coast Highway were nothing short of amazing.

We had only about 2 days in that area, but plan to return. I don’t feel that I was able to do justice, with my camera, to the area. It was just too much to take in at once, but next time I’ll be prepared.
