The North Coast

I’ve shared with you many details of the California North Coast, but not really shown you the shoreline.

Monumental task, actually, because it runs for more than a hundred miles and its contours vary from one mile to the next.

But I’ve collected several pictures that capture the spirit of its variations.

The first is just north of where we’re parked. Notice the person standing on the edge of the point…beyond the fence rails? It’s a free country….
