As the sun sets this day, I grabbed my camera to catch, what I perceive as, the Sun setting on our time living here in Arroyo Grande.

All residences located within 17 miles of each other and contain within San Luis Obispo County.
For Candi, she will have to leave her friends from school and her home where she has spent all her life.
