on our way to the hospital in SF, jake and i took the coast and couldn't have made a more amazing decision.
pomponio state beach (some of the best pictures i've taken all year!)
the rains poured down around us while our route remained mostly dry, despite a freak snow/ice storm that derailed 5 or so cars just north of davenport. the skies parted a number of times, revealing the most stunning displays of light as golden shafts pierced through the moody banner of storm clouds hugging the coast. it was a perfect way to cleanse the soul before checking into the hospital.
