For the Love of the Elements: Water

attachment-52548cb0e4b05048ea3c2ac8

I'm fairly certain I could sit and stare at just about any body of water for hours on end and be completely happy. Anyone out there feel the same way?

Last weekend we had the opportunity to camp along the north coast and I was thrilled to have ample time to take in the grand Pacific Ocean, with its calm horizons and wave-formed coastlines. I've mentioned before that I have a certain level of respect for the ocean, yet I still find myself mesmerized every time I end up at the edge of a continent.

Even as my husband and his friends donned wetsuits and snorkels for abalone diving and I watched the tides change from low to high and back again, the water never failed to hold my attention.

Oceans, rivers, lakes, streams... I often feel completely at peace (and in awe) when I'm in the presence of water and that has me wondering:

Do any of you feel particularly drawn to water? Is it just me?

The Pescadero Weekend: Part 3

At first glance, Pescadero seemed like the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend. We were completely content with our lovely choice in accommodations, Mom's chicken cacciatore, a nice stash of wine and a good book. However, we had heard about a spot along the coast where we could potentially see elephant seal pups in March and April.

The Pescadero Weekend: Part 1

Let me just start out by saying that the minute we left the coast to head back home from this trip, I missed it. I missed the salty air, the wind, the sand, the fog, the glorious sunsets, the food, the wine (oh MAN, was the wine good) the quality time, the restfulness - all of it.

Day Tripping: Gone Coastal

My friends and I had big plans for a day trip to Muir Woods to hike part of the Dipsea Trail last weekend. Well, that didn't happen. April, Jenna and I had a nice leisurely breakfast at Parkside Cafe in Stinson Beach (which was great, by the way) and ended up getting a pretty late start. The parking lots at Muir Woods were completely packed.
