Sunday Blessings - Cambria

I love the beach. I don't think there's any other place I'd rather be. Other than a lake. Or a stream. Or a river. Okay - the point is - I love the water! Cambria reminds me of Big Sur, on a lesser scale. It's south of Monterey, where we spent some of our honeymoon, back in '78. This is the kind of place I'd love to pitch my tent - take that, Gadaffy!

Seriously, I'd love to have a quaint little shop, with lots of greenery, art, handmade jewelry and artifacts from the sea. And of course, art. Big pieces, little pieces, on canvas, on tin, on wood; in oils or acrylics; art glass, twinkling lights, stained glass - a whole cacophony of art! And music....soft dulcimers, pounding pianos, smooth guitar riffs, and jazz. Candles... lots and lots of candles. Silks and satins, soft cottons and velvets, in which to walk along the sandy beach; warm cups of tea and coffee served in bone china cups....delectable.

Have a blessed Sunday.

Philippians 4:8 "...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable --- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy --- think about such things...And the God of peace will be with you."

I'm with you on the gift shop my the sea. I'd love to do that very thing in New England. Except for the lots and lots of candles. I'd be sneezing constantly. Achoo!

We love Cambria! We stay at the St. Simeon Pines. It's just super.
I'm not sure if I'd like to own a gift shop --maybe a bookstore with a coffee bar inside as well!

Sometime ago I heard of a guy who owned a laundrymat. Then the bar came up for sale, so he just bought it and cut a doorway between the two!

Nice photos. I remember visiting Cambria in 2000, and I have driven by several times since along the coast highway.

I never got to Cambria when I lived out that way but always wanted to; thanks for sharing it with us so at least I could visit electronically!
