I live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet--Half Moon Bay. Although I'm not right on the ocean, the box canyon where I live has just as much beauty. There are mountains on all sides, some of them covered with towering redwood trees. Another big plus is the creek that runs through the property. I've spent a lot of time here with my husband and my two cats. I've seen so many interesting birds here, such as bats and the huge great blue heron. It's a wonderful place to meditate.
