Frank and I ventured clear over to the other side of the point of Salinas one morning. From our terrace you can see far off in the distance and you can even see the ocean, but when we walked over there all you could see was desert, no ocean. There was a road that went to the beach but it looked like about two more miles to the ocean and we we're tired of walking under the sun so we headed back. This other side of the point is called "Mar Bravo" and there is nothing out there but a few homes and sand with sage brush. We did see a house for sale, listed a few weeks ago, on OLX.com in the Mar Bravo area for $25k.
