Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 304: Thankful to Live in Sacramento

Today in Sacramento, we had slightly cloudy skies and temperatures that ranged from the low 50s to about 60.

On the other side of the country, in my hometown of Marshfield, my Mom was dealing with blizzard conditions, no electricity or heat, and excessive high tides.

Here are some pictures of Brant Rock, the beach neighborhood just to the south of where my Mom lives in Ocean Bluff:
