Can’t help but once again mention that this morning is very like a morning in California; cool, fresh, windy, delightful.  That may surprise some, especially Southern California with its rim of smog, but if you have been lucky enough to live near the ocean as I was, especially in San Pedro, the days near the sea roll in fresh fragrances and wonderful breezes; the scent of eucalyptus and flowers and earth, as if everything was one long botanical garden.
