While moving frequently most of my childhood due to my Dad's aviation career, I had the good fortune to land on the southern coast of California on the Palos Verdes Peninsula (PVP) my 8th grade year through high school. (Picture above is an ariel view of the PVP). That being the longest period of time I had EVER lived in one place, I consider myself a California girl! I went to college in San Diego for two years and finished my degree (Music) at CSU Long Beach.

Although Georgia has a coastline, I am way too far from it. There is nothing better than an early morning walk, jog or bike ride along the water's edge or sitting in the afternoon with a good book listening to waves hearing the seagulls and children at play. Ohhh I really miss it.
I started thinking about all of the beaches I have lived near, thought you might enjoy. I arranged them in order of my living in each area.
