After a week of temperatures hitting six to ten degrees above the century mark, we headed to the coast to unwind and cool off in one of the central coast’s charming and beautiful little towns. Cambria has been a favorite of ours for decades and is just a a few short hours north of home, a mere hop-skip and jump from Morro Bay–where we enjoy our yearly family reunion.
Some people prefer to unplug for the weekend. I have had so little available time during the week I thought this weekend would also serve as an opportunity to plug-IN. I was looking forward to some time tonight for on-line visiting. However, the Internet is so slow that I’m fairly sure the Universe is giving me the distinct and unmistakeable message that it’s time to sit back and listen to the sound of the ocean and tune out all other distractions. I can do that!
I took many photos today at Moonstone Beach, but since I can’t seem to upload any more, these will do as a tease for future posts. To my friends at home who have sweltered along with me all week, I was going to show you photos of the fog that rolled in around 6 PM. I didn’t even complain that the fog obscured the sunset. It was beautiful and damp–I was actually cold!
Tomorrow we’re headed up the coast just a couple of miles to San Simeon and taking a history tour of Hearst Castle. I will have lots to talk about when I get home.
Tonight I’m breathing lighter enjoying fresh air–a wonderful break from non-stop air-conditioning. If we could only bottle this air! The sound of the waves is a pretty good lullaby as well. Can I just stay here?
Enjoy your weekend, too, my friends. Remember to exhale…
