The best Summer is discovering something no one else has. The best adventure is finding something beautiful that is just ours.
Celebrating our First Days of Summer with the familiar and the favorites.
First adventure destination is just off Carmel towards Big Sur.
It’s off the map. No cell signal. No name. Just an electric post and the coastal mountains as landmarks. It’s the perfect off the grid Summer getaway without being too scary. No 911 access, which adds up to the danger excitement.
I named our family spot Summer because regardless of season, we feel the joys and warmth of Summer with every visit.
This is where we often stop to bring out our folding chairs and eat the juicy flavorful 5-Guys Burger from Sand City.
It has lots of tide pools that contains tiny corals, crabs, fish, sea plants, shells and urchins. When the tides are low, it’s a fun place to to discover sea creatures and sea life.
One time, I saw a couple dug out several old giant Abalone shells. How they figure out where to find the treasures is still a mystery to me. Shell Tracker maybe?
Anywhere you turn, grandeur! It’s 360 degrees of beautiful Nature landscape and ocean views.
Wild local succulent plants and flowers grows in abundance. How they thrive and flourish is a marvel considering California is in a severe drought.
The rock formations and it’s surrounding background are works of Art. Unique and priceless. Hand made by God himself. Like you and me.
Final topping to complete the incredible spectacle, a glowing Golden Sunset guides people on their way home. It’s just Nature’s way of saying, “Thank you and come back soon.”
We find time for what matters. We find time for what makes our heart go, grow and glow. Waiting is not an option, not after everything. Besides, it’s Summer and Summer is all about discovery and rekindling to all that’s happy, fun and relaxing.
So, claim our adventures. It is ours for the taking. Don’t let this Summer pass without finding the best Summer possible.
Really, we don’t have to travel far to experience Summer. No need to ride planes and hold our breathe. Just be open. Be creative. Experiment. Listen to what your heart tells you. Surprise yourself and just go where the wind blows. Just don’t get blown over the Cliff. Off the grid means self survival and no rescue.
Happy Summer all from California. Second Summer destination coming soon. For now we enjoy the day and be sunny merry.
