The View From Here
So this is a picture of what I can see when I stand at the sliding glass door of my bedroom.
This view is one of the reasons we bought this place. This is the first place I have ever lived where I didn't have other houses or buildings looming in my vision, rather than a sweeping vista.
Most people here in SoCal consider this a "poor man's view" as it does not contain even the slightest sliver of ocean. It is in fact facing the opposite direction of the ocean, thus giving us only city lights and mountains. But if you can see even a speck of ocean in your view, you can charge an extra twenty grand, easy. The more ocean, the more your house is worth.
Until we hit the lottery, this will have to do.
