One of my favorite places ...

Doran Beach and Bodega Bay, CA

When I lived in northern CA I would drive up for the day and just sit on the beach.

It was so relaxing to watch the waves come and go, breath the salty sea air and just completely relax and "be". 

The drive up and down the coast was just as beautiful!
