sunny was adopted in montana when she was a year old. i assumed she had not seen the beach. when i first took her, it was to the carpinteria bluffs nature preserve. there is a trail that runs under a line of eucalyptus trees, on the cliff overlooking the ocean. her first glimpse of it was one of the most beautiful i can imagine.
we later went to seaside, oregon, and today, a year and a half later, we came to lincoln beach to work off our oats before heading to town.
suffice to say it was a happy reunion.
