What would we do when all we have is now? Do we wait for amazing to happen ? Or we make amazing happen?
Wednesday, we woke up late but the day was too beautiful to waste. So we hurriedly had coffee, took a shower, changed and grabbed left over food and drinks from our fridge.
As we drove out, I asked my wife, “Where are we going?” She replied with a question, “Where do you want to go?” I answered, “Well, I always wanted to see Bixby Bridge at Big Sur. We can have a beach picnic before that. A friend recommended we check out Garrapata State Park. It has scenic hike trails and it’s close to Bixby Bridge. Smiling she answered, “Then, that’s where we are going.”
No plans. No expectations. No traffic tailgating. No stress. Most relaxing and inexpensive road trip this year. I just paid for gas.
“Wow! So beautiful,” sums up what I was seeing.
Big Sur is rugged, untamed, dramatic. Anywhere along it’s coastline is an exciting adventure. Does not matter if it’s a landmark or just a random spot .
Nature blessed and breathtaking, Big Sur will awaken your soul.
There’s nothing a cold beer, comfort food and a day at the beach could not fix.
Time stood still. For a moment, there’s just us and the beach. We forgot the pandemic. We forgot our worries. It felt good. We felt free.
Son wanted to play beach football. I tried my best to keep up. Mom was sub. Two against one and we still lost. Still felt like a winner seeing everyone so happy.
Time to meet Bixby Bridge. The fuss is all true. It was picture perfect incredible.
Son wondered, “What makes it so special? It’s just a bridge.” I explained, “Son, it’s the view around the bridge that makes it so special. It’s like no other.”
We got home around 8:30 P.M. Did amazing happen? Beyond, from start to finish.
