I could try to describe this view for you, but the iPhone says it so much better.  I'll take this view from any window any time! Josh and I were out previewing new listings in Palos Verdes, as we do every Tuesday morning, and I could not let this view slip past my eyes without capturing a small snippet of its beauty.
