Sometimes, life can be frustrating. I, personally, tend to work very hard and can become disappointed when the things I work towards are not readily tangible - when I am not accepting of the natural order of things. It's hard to remind ourselves that all good things come in good time. Today, I was bummed - so bummed I didn't really want to hike (Now THAT's bad!). But I mustered up my will and went on an adventure to discover what wild flowers were coming up ... THE MOMENT I SAW THEM - I was cured of all blues. It was as though my worries & disappointments were all washed away with the waves and I was kissed kindly by the utter beauty of nature. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! You are my saving grace!
This is one of our Wild Flower Tour Options - a two boot difficulty rating due to a relatively steep climb at the end of the hike. BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT!
Every situation, every moment is of infinite worth for it is representative of a whole eternity - Goethe
Happy birthday to one of our most favorite of pug friends, PHOEBE. Phoebe is, obviously, a character. Her tongue, smile and matriarchal character gives you a sense of pride & happiness - and makes you laugh every time you see her cute, resilient face! What a character! Happy 12th Birthday Phoebe!!!
The only Zen you find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there - Robert M. Pirsig
It's April, folks, and we are beginning to see many new blossoms along the coast and up into the Redwoods. Everywhere you step foot there is something new and exciting to see blossoming or coming back to life. Come join us! And for some extra fun: Add on a picnic at the winery for some post hike R&R!
