Come Monday, we'll be here for seven days, relaxing with some friends and lounging on the beach. In 1940, my great-grandmother built a beach house here, south of Santa Barbara, and for the last 30 years I have spent a week or two here each year. Wood for the fireplace: $35. Gas to drive there: $80. Falling asleep to the sound of the Pacific Ocean outside the bedroom window: priceless.

Here is the view, as the sun goes down, from the front deck of the beach house.

Enjoy yourself.

I like the new look for your blog. Simple and easy to read. It's nearly about time for a change at my blog as well.

Thanks, Collin. The change was actually an accident, but I've gotten used to it. I like it now, too.
