Personal highlights

  1. Wilder Ranch: former dairy farm now transformed into a park and museum
  2. Harbor seals: sometimes they come ashore to sunbathe or whatever they do
  3. Beach: take off your shoes and walk along the sandy beach of the west coast
  4. Railway: walking along the endless straight lines of abandoned iron and wood
  5. West coast: driving along the shore from San Francisco to Carmel-by-the-Sea
