No pictures this post, but I'll make it short and sweet.
For a brief time (3 months), I lived in Pacifica, CA? It's just 10 minutes outside of San Francisco. Anyway, the place has never left my heart. There is a certainn poetic grace, an artist's muse to it all, if you will. It is perpetually foggy, which adds to its unique charm. It rests directly on the beautiful coast of the powerful Pacific Ocean. It is characterized by a famous long, "L"- shaped boardwalk/pier where, on a good day, one might receive a visit from a San Fracisco seal, who swam a little to escape the tourists visiting Alcatraz and the Wharf.
My small literary soliloquoy here does not do Pacifica justice. It really is an amazing, inspiring ocean-side town well worth getting to know.
