I envision myself on sunny day driving up the California coast in this beautiful classic Thunderbird, top down, wind flying in my hair. In my fantasy I stop at several fresh fruit stands along way, picking up luscious ripe avocados, juicy nectarines and succulent jars of honey. I can almost feel the breeze on my skin as I daydream of rolling through the hills and wine vineyards of San Luis Obispo and ending the day with an overnight stay in a nice hotel in beautiful Carmel where brunch and mimosas await me on the patio the next day.
My magical journey continues as I head northward, winding through the the streets of San Francisco to to take pictures of the beautiful street art and graffiti. Eventually I end up along the shores Mendocino where I wistfully gaze at the multicolored sea glass, leaving it there for others instead of sneaking it away to add to my beach treasure trove - as tempting as it might be.
One of the benefits of living in Southern California is having the opportunity to see many well preserved classic cars like this white Ford Thunderbird I spotted in a grocery store parking lot. I do not know who the owner is, but if I did, I'd thank them for prompting my imagination to daydream about driving it one day.
