Return To Paradise

I’ve said it before: After flying every State in the U.S. (except HI) and all the Canadian Provinces, Santa Barbara is still our favorite.

Put differently: There’s No Place Like Home. 🙂

So as we coasted over the Oceano Dunes near Pismo Beach just over half an hour from SBA, our hearts were swelling.

Glancing up we saw the coastal Santa Ynez Range in the distance, and after a few blinks at familiar and always some new scenes we were looking back from our coast at the Gaviota Pass through those mountains.

A few more scenic blinks and we cruised offshore of Refugio Beach, our dancing hearts pulling with increasing magnetic force toward all that sings Home.

Now skimming to the last of our pix from the PNW Adventure, a serene calm softens my memories. If the world ended right now, my last moment would overflow with appreciation for the good fortune of a full and amazing life. Living to the limit, hard times in the past are healed and expectations for the future more easily released.
