Finding Treasure

Come on in and find out what I know and love so much about California. L.A. and San Francisco have much to offer, yes...but there are 28 million more people in the state and they live and play in some of the planet's most amazing places.

Like a random spot along Hwy 1, there are so many cool things to see and do. The locals take it all for granted so why not you, and that's what will make Californialand and Sea your favorite place to come and find them.

I was born here a long time ago. I was fortunate to live in many of the nooks and crannies of this great place and I have lots to share. From my life and the enriched lives of those around me. Visit often and see what there is to offer.
