I've only once had the pleasure of being down Highway 1...unfortunately that
was the weekend my Nikon FM was lifted from the taxi cab after I forgot to
bring it into the hotel! (Pre Leica days....)

When I was there I witnessed parasurfers along the beach...first time I'd
ever seen that. Serves me right for not keeping my camera on my shoulder or
neck instead of beside me on the seat.

Your photo is wonderful to look at. However, I'm not sure the web format
allows full appreciation of the image. I looked at the photo quickly before
reading your entire description. The small blip on the left distracted me
from the magnificence of the vista. After I re-read your email I realized
this must be the couple with the dog, which I can now see towards the bottom
middle of the image. I'm not sure that that aspect of your intented
impression works as well, but the image brings back memories of my one visit
and is very well done.

Do you have any others from same session without the couple?
