For our 3rd day in California, we headed 4 hours north to Manchester .... and along the way we saw many Vineyards that are part of Wine Country. The rolling green hills, the twisted curving roads, more Redwoods ... it was beautiful.
The scenery in the country was gorgeous ... and then our route took us along the water's edge .... through natural spaces that we did not realize existed anymore.
Much of the land in this area is zoned agriculture so codes prevent building against the coast. We saw cows, horses, sheep, goats, and llamas grazing in front of million dollar views. It was incredible.
We headed to Manchester for a dream .... my mother's dream since childhood to ride (for the first time ever) a horse on the beach.

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you." (Philippians 4:8-9)
