Merry Christmas! 

Many thanks to Lisa Woodruff of Huntington Beach, California for sending this photo of the classic "Woody" car that she spotted while driving down the Pacific Coast Highway on her way to work in Seal Beach. With a vanity license plate that reads "53 BUICK", a surfboard on the roof and a Christmas wreath on the back, this is the ultimate "Merry Christmas" from Southern California.

The magnificent colors of the sun setting over the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island provide a beautiful backdrop for the Christmas decorations and surfers in the photo that Lisa took from the pier in Seal Beach a couple of years ago. Thanks for showing us what Southern California looks like in December, Lisa. I'll think of you enjoying the sunshine as I brave the cold wind and rain in Paris.

If you have some pictures that you would like to share, please send an email to

  1. Feliz Navidad and Hang Ten.

  2. Nice to see the sun is shining somewhere! Merry Christmas to you and your family MK!

  3. Glad you liked the photos! Just to rub it in, it's suppose to be 75 degrees today! (Christmas day). Even warm for our standards. Crispy clear & cold this morning though! (High 30's!) 45 degree difference!
    Have a Merry Cali Christmas all! Lisa

  4. Joseph, Sara (our daughter) asked about the meaning of "Hang Ten". She's obviously not a surfer like you.

    kbh, What happened to the sunshine in Paris? When the church bells woke me up this morning, it looked as if it was going to be a beautiful day until the clouds moved in.

    Lisa, Your photo of a West coast car prompted an email from Penny at Boston Zest with the link for a picture of a '59 Plymouth with Holiday Sparkle that she spotted driving around Boston.

    Enjoy your Cali Christmas and thanks again for sharing the lovely photos!

  5. Merry Christmas to you and the family, MK. It's a typical Christmas Day here in So Florida....80 and hot with folks jogging along the beach. LOL
    Loved Lisa's photos.
