Story and photos By Bob Lindsey
California Dreamin’ for folks in the Midwest usually means visions of traveling to the major tourist mega centers such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Anaheim or San Diego.

Pacific sunsets are spectacular all along the California coast, such as this one in Cambria,CA near the Hearst Castle.
