I grew up twelve miles from the southern terminus of what can be construed as the Big Sur Coast. My grandmother used to paint seascapes here, and I’m reasonably sure my mother emptied Lime Kiln Creek of landscape rock.

Louise, my mother, went into assisted living kicking and screaming then after getting there, she loved it. The weight of responsibility was lifted from her shoulders, and she made the journey from paranoia from random dementia, to joy.

I have lived in many resort towns since, and I have noticed a trend, I am attracted to them when they are still small, quaint, and undiscovered, but it usually isn’t long before word spreads about this next great place. The newcomers arrive, and they marvel at the scenery but yearn for a classier looking town.
