We both commented that it was grand to be out and about, hiking around, and not be overcome by the heat. Blessed, blessed FOG.
I grew up on the California coast, spent most of my adult life there. I know the flora and fauna, the smells, the weather patterns. It was heaven to experience them all again.
I'll be returning next week, to be with my grandson, meet up with old friends, and go hiking with a Facebook friend. Love those real live meetings with cyber pals...I have not been disappointed yet.
One day past our horrific national tragedy, I know I am lucky. We are lucky. I recently found out that a friend was actually supposed to be at a breakfast meeting in the towers, but had to take his daughter to her first day of school, and so missed being there. Missed. Being. There. Can you imagine?
Many stories to tell from the trip, but I'll save them for later. It was quite an experience, seeing places that I haven't seen for thirty years. I highly recommend getting 'away,' if you can. Puts a new spin on things.
For now, I wish you a lovely weekend. Gracias a la vida, mis amigos.
