The Pacific Coast Highway stretches some 1,675 miles from Olympia, Washington to San Diego, California. For many years, my wife and I were grateful that we had the resources to spend time in many of the more contemplative areas of the PCH road north of Cambria, a small coastal village where we spent our honeymoon. We lived in the SoCal area where the highway is more commonly referred to as the PCH. I still live in SoCal. But time and impermanence changes all. My wife has passed and my age now keeps me from longer journeys. Now shorter trips often offer more wisdom. I have begun to focus on a two mile stretch of the PCH in Long Beach, California.
