California ends at the Pacific. California Avenue in Santa Monica ends at the cliffs above the Pacific, at Palisades Park with its old wooden gazebo, high above the beach below. A steep ramp, the cantilevered California Incline, hugs the cliff and leads down and down and down to Pacific Coast Highway, and then it’s off to Malibu just up the coast. But this is where California really ends. At the old wooden gazebo. ~ Wednesday, November 17, 2021
