we find ourselves driving around California on a whim or on purpose. we've been doing this since we've met and will always be wandering around aimlessly until they take our driver's licenses away from us when, you know, the time comes. john, sean and chris found this spot in PV awhile back and on our way back into l.a. from Salvang we stopped to smell the proverbial roses and enjoy the pacific before sunset. A rocky cove awaited us at the bottom of this steep pathway. The descent was easy , and gorgeous scenery takes my breath away. And then... the ascension back up the steep pathway which literally takes my breath away. My thighs burned as I grunted in utter resentment towards my children who were skipping all the way up without strenuous effort. I was the last to reach the top, breathless and so-outta shape. My sensitve son Sean, 12, jogged back down a bit as I approached the top encouraging me to keep going "almost there..." he says. My cheerleader.
