I've decided that 2010 will be the year of travel, photography and writing for me. While I can't afford to travel abroad at this time in my life, I can certainly afford to experience my own state of California. So I've scheduled some time to see the places of my own home state that I've longed to visit, places such as Ojai, The Lost coast, Napa Valley and the interior of Yosimite. I also hope to enjoy a "stay vacation" of my own home town of Monterey and all of the wonderful little must see areas of the central coast including Carmel, Pebble Beach, Moss landing, and quaint San Juan Bautista. If anyone out there has any suggestions of hotels, restaurants, hiking, parks and the must see and do's of the Golden State please share them. I'm on the look out for unique, spiritual and inspiring.
