We lived in the Los Angeles area (Pacific Palisades)from 2003 to 2005. Pacific Palisades is located next to the ocean between Santa Monica and Malibu. We lived in our rented townhouse for several months before we realized we had an ocean view. On a really clear day (there weren't very many!) we could see Catalina Island. This was the view from the back of our townhouse at sunset. (click on the photo for a larger view and you'll see the island)

While living there, an on-line friend challenged me to make a quilt based on the word "Vista" so I used the photo from our house as inspiration. This piece is only a little bigger than a piece of paper so it was quick to make.

Here's a detail shot.
