Imagine your eyes are closed. You feel a fresh breeze and inhale salty air. Your bare feet are touching wet, cool sand. Everything is in different shades of grey.The sand, the sea, the air. It´s August at the Pacific in California. Along the shore are long streaks of seaweed, seashells, while the waves are crushing in. Isn´t this reason enough to say: „Yes“. It´s worth to see it.“? Altough it´s chilly I feel happy. Being at the sea lifts my mood immediately. Seagulls are passing by. Screaming in a language I don´t understand. I am standing at the beach along the 17-Mile-Drive, a scenic route close to Monterey. Between the shades of grey I spot a light green patch. The famous Pebble Beach golf course. Golf carts are placed close to the shore. Must be fun playing here. A couple of miles later I watch the Lone Cypress – the famous symbol of the 17 Mile Drive. 13 years ago I already said „Hello!“ to her. She still looks the same. The sea lions are not the same but they are as lazy as they used to be in the past. I could watch them forever. What a beautiful place. Being at the sea doesn´t always mean lying under palm trees looking into blue sky and jumping into warm water. A grey sky and sea too cold to jump in can be as beautiful. Now I ask you: Is it worth to see it? What do you think?
