Well, kinda, From our neighborhood anyway. Thanks to my great Photoshopping skills, I have pointed out where the ocean can been seen while looking down our street from the top of the hill. Our house is about where that star is (no, that's really not a starfish). Click on the image for a bigger view.
I rode down to the beach after dinner tonight. We're about .9 as the crow flies, 1.5 from the home to the beach via bike. Not too shabby. Now I gotta get a surfboard. And lessons.
