At a friend’s recommendation…
A historical saltbox looking to the small town of Westport, CA
Perched on the cliffs of the Northern California coast
The previous owner was born in the kitchen of this house
The present owner restored the house and raised a family in it
It’s luxurious in a different way
Hard to describe really
The 2 bedrooms are literally wall-to-wall, there is no shower just a clawfoot tub,and sometimes the power is knocked out
But it’s how the house makes you feel, and how the host makes you feel welcomed
The artist’s touch
First “vacation dinner” table setting — get to work!
After two hours of darkness the electricity came on and we let out a yelp of happiness! By this time, the table had been set and the dinner prepared. Corn soup, rice, salad, bread, spinach, chick peas, brownies, ginger tea for dessert, thanks to a very industrious and capable couple. We have the pioneering spirit!
First view in the morning (the 1st day) 6:30AM out of my bedroom window. So quiet
First view in the morning (the 2nd day) 6:30AM out of the same window
But two fishermen had already beaten me to the beach. They were using chopped up frozen octopus as bait
There is no TV or internet connection — but there is a lot to see and to hear
What is this?
So blue, so pretty, so open
I can hear myself think and feel
And to allow something called intuition to be my part of my guiding light
A black sand beach, right below the house
The water is gray when the sky is cloudy, and blue when the sky is sunny
Mornings are the best. Not a single car on the road this way (Route 1 south bound).
No one on Route 1 north bound either.
The sky is mine, the ocean is mine, the air is mine, the fog is mine, the entire place is mine, mine, mine, mine, all mine!!!! (um excuse me, how old are you?)
Hey, watercolor Westport — are you always this pretty, this foggy, this lush, this modest?
