This trail leads to Northwest side of Van Damme Beach in Little Rive CA.
I got a note from the gallery: It was the couple who asked where the trail was located. It held special memories for them and they were so happy to purchase it for their home.
A lot of people have nice special memories at the locations.
I painted this â€œ182. By Van Dammeâ€ in Watercolor in 2004, which is the same location, just a little going toward west from the â€œ590. Secret Trail to the Beachâ€.
Long time I didnâ€™t go to the place, but I was looking at the print of â€œ182. By Van Dammeâ€, I wondered what it looked like in 2011. So I went to there. Itâ€™s amazingly the place was not much changed.
And again I went to back there when Margaret were blooming.
The trail is winding and going down and down. Both side of the trail is wild plants including wild fuschias. Over grown plants cover the ocean view. Just keep going, and sudden it opens up and you are on the beach.
When I was climbing back from the beach, I saw this Victorian house. And when I was painting the trail part, some how my memory went to my child food in Japan. I felt nostalgia. We were running as laughing on the trail.
Have you had that kind of flush back?
