MY MOST COMFORTABLE PLACE
The place that I feel most comfortable is my hometown of Huntington Beach. Huntington Beach is in California about forty miles south of Los Angles. It is known as the surfing capital of the world and the best beach in Orange County.

The fisherman cast their line off the pier hoping to feel a tug and reel in a big fish.

Everything on Huntington Beach has its own unique feel. The salty air blowing on my face feels wet and cool as it passes by. The feeling of the grainy sand is comforting to my feet as I walk across the shore. When I plunge into the ocean's salt water, it feels refreshing to my skin like a glass of water on a hot day.
