Jon and Mary Lyn Wolfert slipped in for a few days. They’re passing through from Alaska.
Tonight they’re Dallas bound. They were on-the-ground making a fuel stop at Cavern City Air Terminal in Carlsbad, NM a few minutes ago.
Their Mooney has been dodging storms, but should be good the rest of the way. The sky will be getting brighter when they land after 5:00 AM local time.
SoCal is a pretty area. Out-of-town guests get taken to see the sights.
I like Thalia Street Beach in Laguna Beach because there’s not much of it. Twisting stairs lead down from the street. The walk to the high water line can’t be more than thirty feet. I wade in to my calfs. Well, that’s my intent.
Perfect weather. Beach jammed. Lifeguard stands, not evident a few months ago, out of storage and in the sand.
Everything about this beach says Southern California!
We left and drove past homes somehow fastened to hillsides. We were heading up. Prices were going up. Views too. Up high you see a lot.
Civilization ended at the top of the hill. We walked into the Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park. One side faces the Pacific, the other the basin that holds much of Orange County and the mountains that define its border.
More people stop by now that we’re in California. People like coming here. I understand why.
