Saturday on Artichoke Road

Lane with View of Pacific Ocean, Pescadero, CAMy husband and I find inspiration in solitude, a meditative mood and beauty.  Solitude is the norm in the Nevada Desert but not so on the California Central Coast, especially on a day like last Saturday.  Warm temperatures and California wildflowers drew thongs to the beaches so we diverted to the agricultural center of Pescadero and Artichoke Road, a secluded lane which threads through a wood before spreading open a view of the Pacific Ocean and artichoke fields.Young artichoke plants, Pescadero, California
