Follow-up: What is the best part about living close to the ocean?
KAYT GREEN | Author | Pacific Grove
A: The otters and wildlife. People make choices that threaten the natural habitat. This area is beautiful, but it’s fragile, too.
Classic Call: Spending sunny days with my family on the beach.
JOSHUA PONKE | Retail I Salinas
A: Highway 1 along the ocean. I am certain that most people just drive by and don’t look at the water.
Left is Right: I come from Redding, so seeing the ocean is a privilege. I can go there and relax completely.
GUADALUPE AVILA-LOPEZ | Retired | Pacific Grove
A: Our impact. People don’t keep it clean. I see people throw trash, and then I see animals consume it, and unfortunately they die.
Home Again: I love the climate. It feels like it is summer in the wintertime.
