But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of the ocean.
It wouldn’t be right, would it, to go to the California coast and not spend time looking at the Pacific? While we didn’t spend any time on the beach sunbathing and frolicking in the waves, we did try to drive along as much as we could with the ocean at our side. And we did stop now and then just to look and admire.
The weather was nice and clear on the first half of our trip, but around the middle time, the fog rolled in and it wasn’t possible to really see out to sea...at least not very far. Still, that didn’t keep me from taking a few pictures of the Pacific in all its moods.
