This one has an interesting story behind it. I was going to drive to an optometry conference from Los Angeles to Monterey with a colleague; we were planning on leaving Friday evening after work. She was unable to make it and decided to drive up separately on Saturday morning, so I left on Friday early afternoon. On the way there I saw some amazing clouds as sunset was nearing, so I headed to the ocean. I just happened to come to this charming gazebo at Margo Dodd park in Pismo Beach as the sky completely lit on fire. If my colleague and I had driven up after work together as initially planned, I would have missed one of my wife's favorite pictures. Funny how life works out.
