|From a park above Balboa Beach, California|
I've received this delighful postcard of the view from a park above Balboa Beach in California from Pat. It's on heavyish watercolour paper. I couldn't quite decide whether it was NOT or rough. It certainly stood up to its travels very well.
Pat tells me that she climbs up the hill in the park so she can see the ocean, the rooftops and the sunset in the evening. She then sketches at the top before taking herself off a pastry and a coffee!
The view and her story took me back instantly to 2006. I whiled away some time during my drive down Highway 1 from San Francisco to San Diego having my Sunday morning breakfast in a cafe above Zuma Beach on Highway 1 in Malibu.
Pat's postcard reminded me so much of being up high looking down at the California coastline and the Pacific Ocean. It's great to have a reminder of what it feels like to look down at the ocean.
