  • Pacific coast is heaven on earth. Totally and absolutely in love with it. Don’t wanna leave it ever! Last 3 pics are from Ragged Point, it’s a must stop to feel the high speed to wind and enchanting sound of waves.
  • The bridge was a nice stop to stretch our legs. It is a very gorgeous spot to see. Try to go under the bridge on the left hand side and there’s more beauty to see.
