I just returned from a short trip to California to visit friends who recently moved back there.   Believe it or not this was my first time to southern California!  I love looking at landscapes, especially the different vegetation found in new places I visit.  My favorite were the cypress trees, so magestic against the blue sky – and the sage growning wild!   Along the drive to the coast of San Diego I enjoyed looking at the mountains and though the weather was overcast and misty, the ocean was breathtaking! 

I am so happy my friends found their way back to the place they truly feel is there home.  As for me, though California was beautiful, I am happy to be living in the place I truly feel is home, North Carolina!

Here are some of my best photos from my trip…
