Her dog and cat We live in Occidental, a stone's throw from the beach and close enough to Sebastopol to have access to Whole Foods. I like to think I live in the place most like Waimea, Hawaii, on the Big Island, but better since we are about an hour and 15 min. from the Golden Gate Bridge. This helps me get my City Fix when I need it. We have a garden, a hot tub, and tons of redwood trees and ferns.
