My California

Just got back from a blissful few days with Greg along the Central California coast. The Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur area is a special place for me. It's where my father would take us if he really wanted to splurge to make my mother happy (she loves the ocean), and Greg and I have had some amazing trips there. It's also the region that most represents California for me. I'm a California native, and whereas some people think of Hollywood and traffic as best describing my home state, the following images are of regions that evoke it best for me. Hope you enjoy.

Now you've got me wishing again that I could make New York money in San Luis Obispo.

Cool!

Glad you had fun, great pics, and if you astronomers decide to call Planet X "Yuggoth", I'm leaving.

The blasphemies which appeared on earth, it was hinted, came from the dark planet Yuggoth, at the rim of the solar system; but this was itself merely the populous outpost of a frightful interstellar race whose ultimate source must lie far outside even the Einsteinian space-time continuum or greatest known cosmos.

Actually, that reminds me of something...HPL was an amateur astronomer, and had a number of articles published on his observations. If you ever come across one, you know...think of me.

Now they’re going to regret cutting the funding for the Large Fungus Observatory.
