Well, so far anyway. It was just one of those days that you keep enjoying until the sun sets. We had a little morning fog but not as heavy as it had been the previous couple of days. I could see the road when I drove out to the barn. After resting my sore bicep tendon and shoulder joint for the past month, I've started riding Beau again. The first day I felt like I hadn't been on a horse in six months. The second day felt more normal. With off and on rainy days this year, everyone is riding as much as possible and it's good to have a nice arena with good footing.
After that, I went over to the second barn where I have Buddy in training. I have made the decision to offer him for sale so I moved him to the right trainer to get him in top form. He's happy and doing very well. He had already been worked by the time I arrived so there wasn't a reason to hang around. The coast was calling!
If you've read my blog for a while, you've no doubt seen many many photos of the gorgeous vista from Highway 46. I was thrilled to see the hills turning green after our rains. I hope we get enough rain that it lasts into the Spring. If you have plans to visit our Central Coast, try to make the trip while the hills are green. You won't be disappointed.
I drove on to Cambria. Yes, my happy place. The tourists weren't there, the surf was crashing, and it was perfect for a stroll with my camera. I stayed up on the boardwalk rather than walk on the beach. Somedays I prefer walking on the planks instead of wet sand.
Believe me, I have many many photos of the day. I'm not going to post too many because they are variations on the theme. And no doubt I'll be back soon with more to share.
Go to Cambria. Really, I mean it.

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
