Not much to say about the town I live in -- Santa Maria. Its big (unfortunate) claim to fame is that it's where the Michael Jackson trial was held. You can see a bit of it, below:
Here and Here.

Many of the buildings have the terra cotta roofs, and there is a pretty good diversity of trees and plants here, but the town itself is boring. What I like is what is *near* my town.

Oceano Beach on an overcast day. What's cool about it is that you can drive on a large stretch of it, so it makes it nice for those who have trouble walking on the soft sand. You can park near the water and walk a bit and find shells and such -- get your feet in the water. It's also a great place to park at night and neck to the sound of the surf and the glow of the moon.
Here.

On a sunny day:
Here.

Shell Beach right after xmas last year, just after the tsunami (which is why the seas are a bit tempestuous). There are cliffs with homes overlooking it -- they call the area Dinosaur Caves, because of all of the caves that one can explore below -- during low tide, of course. Biggie took this one.
Here.

The same general area, on a nicer day
Here.

My car right across the street from that cliff, to give an idea of the area.
Here.

Further down the coast, on a bay,
Here.

Anyway, you get the idea. There is gorgeous coast, with each beach having a different feel -- from wild and untamed to more touristy. I love this area and never tire of the ocean.
