This is not some far off tropical paradise but rather, in our own backyard, at Summerland Beach Lookout Park. I was on my way south on 101and the sunset sky and magnificent clearing winds begged me to exit and enjoy the show from this cliff-top view. The low slung clouds sailed like giant galleons through the sky. The sea was flat and rippled all at once. The leaves, trees and bushes sashayed madly all about as the celestial colors merged from blue to lavender to pink, coral, gold and indigo. What a California winter delight.
