I grew up in Annapolis and Gualala and loved it. As my parents and extended family still live in Gualala I find myself visiting often. Although I have traveled extensively to other countries, Gualala continues to be my favorite place on earth. The ocean, the tranquility, and the people make you keep wanting to come back. Another thing I love about this area is that everything is locally owned, from the coffee shops to the grocery stores. And not to mention that you won't find a stop light in town!
I also enjoy travelling to other places and I try to get out as much as I can. I love the great outdoors, especially hiking!
