The rising sun is brushing away the morning fog on a quiet stretch of beach. Shore birds are searching for sand crabs. Down at Rincon Point, hardy surfers are dropping into the long, wide break points.
At Linden and Carpinteria Avenue, the cafés are alive with folks savoring their first cup of morning joe.
And right downtown, a new neighborhood has taken shape in the middle of one of California’s original beach towns.
It’s called GranVida, Carpinteria’s only senior living and memory care community.
