WPC WordPress Photo Challenge: Wanderlust
I remember that off-kilter, somewhat alarming sensation when I lived in California that I would feel if I was walking the beach. Coming from the East Coast where I had lived all of my then 35 years, I was always confused when I tried to figure out whether I was walking north or southerly. It was almost always the opposite of what I thought. Sometimes I’d be walking for quite a long distance, thinking I would come across a certain landmark before I realized I must be heading away from it and would have to backtrack a long way to reach it. Born and raised in the north of Boston burbs, I was habituated to firmly believe that the ocean was to my right and if I walked to the left I was headed north. This picture is so true to how I viewed the West Coast, as opposed to how I think of the East Coast.
