One of the 2 known rare Tidefall, a waterfall that flows directly into the ocean in California, Alamere Falls is too dreamy to be true, but it does exist.
“The Waterfall love so much the Ocean that it made a vow to love it unconditionally till the end of time. No drought will ever stop it from giving all of itself.”
It’s one of the most unforgettable Nature Hiking Adventure I’d been. Not only do I get to stand where the water cascades down, but unbelievably able to dip my feet on the refreshing cold water where it meets the sand.
One Hiker from our group gets to cross out a bucket list, “Shower under a waterfall,” and bathe in its pool. I wish I did it too, but I didn’t bring extra clothes, he did. He came prepared. I wasn’t. It’s a reason for me to go back though and cross it out on my add on must-to do list.
I woke up at 4:30 A.M. so we can drive before 6:00 A.M. towards Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin County. I though it was too early, then an OMG moment happened.
As we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge, the most amazing Sunrise appeared connecting two destined lovers, Marin and Francisco who promised to love each other forever. No odds, hardships and opposing families will break them apart. Theirs is a story that confirms love conquers and endures all when people fight for it.
It was a magical revelation of courage, perseverance, hope and new beginnings, at least for me.
I wish I can slow mo the moment, but it was over in a minute. Our driver did try to drive the slowest, so I’m thankful.
Mesmerizing ocean views on the left.
Gorgeous wildflowers, trees and rocks on the right. They were so eye candy, I found myself alone several times staring at them because the rest of my group hikers already went ahead.
My hiking pace was leisure walk-pause-run. It is very distracting to have a scenic trail. Good distraction though because I forgot all my anxiety and stress.
I was 100% lost in enjoyment to a once in a lifetime 100% magnificent Nature experience. To a restless, often worried, broken dreamer, that’s a rare gift as rare as the Sunrise I witnessed that morning.
I stood close to the edge of the fall next to the water that was flowing down.
I looked towards the ocean’s vastness so happy that my chest felt like it’s going to burst.
I stretched my arms wide and look up towards the sky, silently shouting, “I’m on top of the World!”
Exhilarating, thrilling, exciting, I can go on and on of how it all felt to describe the experience, but one stood out, blissful.
After our group hiking picture, we ate and shared our packed lunch. Place so fun, I didn’t hear my tummy growling.
I had to see the entirety of this California paradise so I walked the farthest from the group and stood on the rocks next to the ocean waves.
I felt so wonderfully alive like all my senses are heightened. It was invigorating, almost like I was 21 again. No need for Testosterone shots, not yet anyways.
“We don’t have to see the full face of a person to know they are happy or smiling. It could be the sound of their voice, their laughter, the words they write or say. There are pictures we can’t photo edit when it comes to inner happiness. I looked at this one and all the pics taken that day and I really did look very happy. So I will try and find time to make more of these moments if the reward is happiness. Life would be lifeless without it.”
Freeze the moments that awes you. Keep the ones that inspired you. Leave the ones that hurt you. Repeat the ones that made you forget the shits. Be grateful for the ones that stood out as a blessing. Share the ones that made you love life and yourself all over again.
Anything beautiful doesn’t really end because the heart will always go back and remember.
So, please wait. Don’t give up yet. The one you are longing for will find you. It’s a promise like the Sunrise made to always wake up the Day.
