I haven't lived in CA for 10 years, but now making plans to move back in January, it seems like a lot of people are unhappy there.

There's a lot of unhappy people everywhere.

Sure, the crowds are kind of a downer, and it takes planning to avoid having a day trip made less pleasant by traffic....

...but yesterday was as gorgeous as it gets at the beach. Tropically warm and glassy.... I saw a humpback breach and manta ray flying like in Mexico....

..and if you go to the mountains midweek when school is in session, you'll be alone most of the time.

...and if you don't insist on paddling out at a name spot like Rincon or Malibu, there is plenty of unridden beach break.
