Things I love about CA
The beach. Disneyland. The mountains. The freeways-I know it sounds odd, but they ARE better. Hollywood. LA. Pasadena. Claremont. Corban Canyon. Santa Monica Pier. Claremont Colleges. Botanical Gardens. Venice Beach. Knott's Berry farm. Medieval Times. 3rd Street. Laying out and feeling the sun's rays on my skin. Free summer activities. The People. Bonfires at the beach. The fact that "I'm freezing" means "it's 60*F, and I have to put on a sweatshirt. Riding bikes at the beach. All the things you find hidden. Santa Barbara. The warmth of the sun. My friends who take me to a new restaurant at least once a month. Surfers. People who encourage me to read good books. Opening the sunroof and smelling the beach air. My house is an hour from just about everything, and 3 hours from Vegas and TJ. Seeing dolphins off the coast. The ability to pick a fav store, and know that there are 12 similar shops within a mile radius if I don't feel completely satisfied. Ruby's on the pier. Governor Arnold. CSU's that cost less than 1500 a semester. Catalina Island. Tornado season-we don't have them. DCA (Disney's California Adventure). The beach.
