Merry Christmas 2011 from Orange County, CA

 

 

 

Sometimes I realize how lucky I am to live where I do, and others I simply forget as this has been home for most of my life.

Today is Christmas, and I took a ride to the beach in 70+ degree weather.  Not only was the weather great; the scenery is beautiful, and I wanted to share a little of what my family and I enjoy each day.

 

I hope your Christmas was wonderful too!
