That smell of the salt water flowing over the hillside, throughout the harbor to your doorstep. The light dripping of fog that will only stay until the sun burns it away. Driving to town you watch as an airplane takes off and flies over the Pillar Point Harbor where a massive old-time ship has come for a visit. Surfers sit on the water at the beach, just hoping that some wave might come take them for a ride.
