Del Mar Avenue

I dropped Willem off at soccer practice this afternoon at Moulton Meadows park and on the way back, driving on Del Mar Avenue, I got to take in one of my favorite views of Laguna. I love driving down Del Mar on a clear day because it gets so steep so quickly that, for a split second, it looks as if the road ahead drops directly off into the ocean. (I’m also partial to this particular avenue because my friends the Herricks’ house is on it; they’re living in Italy right now and I miss them.)

The road is so steep

and the ocean so blue I

may stop and dive in
