December is a beautiful time at the Carmel River Beach. Every morning Kim and I take a walk there. This ritual began when I was just a child, I used to get up very early in the morning with my mother and walk Carmel Beach. When our son Zach first starting taking the bus to school we decided that we would start walking since we were up and ready to go. The amazing thing about the beach is that it is always different. Always new and always changing. It's so magical.
