"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough"- Mae West

Living on the California coast away from much of the hustle and bustle of the life I once knew, I often marvel at what folks can put up with. For example, I recently had the misfortune of finding myself on California Highway 101 at about 3:30PM.  Sitting.  Stopped. For over five minutes.  Then traffic starting jerking forward and then stopping for no apparent reason except there were too many of us!  And this is "modern" civilization!!  Really? Why???

When there are sand beaches waiting for foot steps to leave their mark….

Tall redwoods whispering their century old secrets….

Deserted farm roads waiting to be explored…

ESCAPE!!!  Now, before it is too late!!! Do whatever it takes to reconnect with the natural world!
Snuggle in the bosom of Mother Nature! 

Explore her vast beauty….

"Keep close to Nature's heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean" - John Muir
