Hi Gene, Wow, that's quite a post, beautifully done. I had to click on over when I saw that it was La Cresta, it's such a special area. One of my clients from OC moved there a few years ago. I was out to see them and was really impressed with the entire area. BTW, that infinity pool, great shot with the light view in the background. Very effective!
