happiness is...

* a day off from my secretarial job. * heading to the beach; a short 30-minute drive from my house.

* wandering the streets of Laguna Beach, camera in hand.

* the kindness of strangers... (I met a person who happened to be the window designer of a few local shops who pointed out a few great areas for photos that I might otherwise have missed.)

* cruising down PCH in the middle of December with the windows rolled down, blaring music from the New Moon soundtrack. (No laughing... it's good music!)

*finding new beautiful places I'd never stopped to enjoy before.
