Weekend Wandering

August 5, 2018

All our posts this week from Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook, right here for you.  Our week’s worth of our recently posted photos on our social media, for your weekend inspiration to seek out travel, nature, and adventure.  How are you going to make memories that you will talk about on Monday?  There’s More to Life.

California Dreaming (Zanne)

It started off as a joke on Twitter, trying to convince #TravelTribe blogger/social influencer @RoarLoudTravel
with the help of @Always5Star who run the amazing #SundaySunsets feature to come to California as part of their next trip. Ironically, at the same time, I had my high school best friend/maid of honor/”soul sister” Linda in from Chicago and was trying to show her how amazing Southern California was. The result was a morning shopping in Ojai, then off to Carpenteria State Beach.  Then as we drove down the Pacific Coast Highway, with a little Van Morrison on the radio,  we could see the sunset in the rearview mirror, so we had to stop in Ventura to watch it sink into the ocean, and then stayed to watch the Blood Moon rise over the water.  My iPhone photos don’t really capture how red the moon was that night, but we were’;t expecting it either.  It just goes to show-trust your gut and travel by the compass and not clocks.

 Exploring Carpinteria Beach. We arrived too late to see the tide pools because the tide was already coming in. I love this photo of “the golden hour” because it really just takes me back to walking barefoot on the beach, warm, wet hard sand, surf slapping at the hem of my sundress and feeling so alive at this moment. That’s what Golden Hours are all about.

The next day we woke up early and drove to Mt. Pinos, and hiked for a few hours, taking in the views from the summit overlooking 800 feet elevation.

“Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go. This is my station’”. Lisa St. Auburn de Teran.
When’s the last time you had a little flirting?

Walk strong and silent in the waves and let them crash around you.

Morning Coffee with Half Dome. Read about waking up at sunrise to drive to Washburn Point and hike Glacier Point to see the magnificent views of Yosemite.
My Saturday is going through hundreds of photos, because every minute the sun rose higher, the light captured a whole new mood on the mountains. New Blog is up now at Morning Coffee with Half Dome.

Don’t be the person who is too busy when you’re young, and too tired when you’re old.
