We're putting together our first-ever reader photo gallery, and we want to see your photos. Click here to find out how to submit. I'm posting a few photos below for inspiration.
This is me (left) with freelance photographer Shelley Metcalf in 2008 when we were working on a story about the Crystal Cove Beach Cottages. Check out our July/Aug issue for great deals on lodging in coastal state parks such as this one.
This is a photo of my niece on her first trip to the beach last summer. How cute is she?!
Finally, this is my husband and I hiking the Blue Trail through the hills of Cinque Terre, Italy (one of my favorite places). You can't see it in the background, but that white space is the Mediterranean Sea.
Ok, now you've seen some of my coastal photos. E-mail us yours!
