Yesterday I drove up the California coast on the 101 freeway in search of wild flowers. We've had so much rain the past few months, I thought it'll be an excellent time for wild flowers to show up. It was still a little early for the central coast. However the hills was this emerald green that the countryside resembled more like an English countryside than a temperate Californian landscape and was so beautiful. It was almost a once in a long time happenstance, we had 6 years of drought. I explored little towns that I had only read about Online, Santa Margarita? Where was that? I knew about San Luis Obispo and Cambria. The drive was long, 4 hours each way but it was a good trip.
