I'm all too familiar with California's housing prices. I lived in
Santa Cruz for four years...and San Diego for almost a year. I love
it there, but unless I win the lottery, I just don't see it
happening. I'm a graphic designer by trade, and you CAN make good
money if you get into the right advertising agency or have a highly
marketable specialty...but I tend to like working at colleges, which
pay far less than in the more competitive markets. I just prefer the
academic atmosphere to the cut-throat business world.
Incidentally, when we were in Oregon I visited a bookstore in
Corvallis which had one of the largest collections of Hawaiiana I
have ever seen. They had about six long shelves of books about
Hawaii, fiction & non-fiction, and happened to have a good thirty
Blanding books. They even had Flowers of the Rainbow ($300).
Powell's Books in Portland also had a dozen Blandings.
