Eat Local, Dream Local, Stay Local

Staycation is the new Travel Adventure Vacation and Destination 2020 and 2021.

We all have our Travelogue Stories to tell. Some planned, others by surprise. All, a discovery of something beautiful, amazing and delicious that we already have locally.

Local Apricots by Monterey County. Sweetest I tasted in 5 years.

This is my second Summer and Fall Staycation, and I feel absolutely blessed. Not only is it more relaxing, I also felt that I was able to enjoy more of life and precious time by experiencing more frequently things me and my Family love of doing together.

Organic Strawberries. It’s sweet too, unlike the ones I get in groceries.

So I’m yes for Eating Local. I’m yes to Dreaming Local. It is the best way to Live More.

I get it, we all have our so negativity on the restrictions, lockdowns, mandates and stupid Politics and Indifference, but I’m tossing all that toxicity to the deepest parts of the Ocean.

I grew up eating Marrachino Cherries in a bottle. Imagine my reaction when I ate the fruit for the first time. Something popped for sure! Fresh is Best.

Why should I let negativity drown me when I have a choice to just relax under the Sun and indulge on my favorite food overlooking the most wonderful view in the World?

Toss Greens overlooking more greens …and blues. The eating experience is like no other when I get to sit next to a cliff with the warm Ocean Breeze giving me free facial massage.

And if I did it, so can you, that is if you haven’t done it yet already.

Today’s Menu: Think Differently. Feel Differently. Live Differently.

“We can go there,” says the Son to his Dad. So they did, again and again and again. No limit to where our Staycation will take us. So, let’s go Buddy. Stop procrastinating.

Staycation is max 5 Stars Review on Deliciousness. It’s full of joyful, rich, Wellness giving nutrients.

“Life’s too short to waste on complaining for every little thing.”

Peace ✌️✌️✌️and Love ♥️♥️♥️.

  2. I love all the your pictures of the colourful fruits. We’ve been trying to eat and travel more locally as well. I gotta say, I’m loving it so far. I”ll be sad once our weekly farmer’s market closes in a few weeks.

    • We enjoy the Farmer’s market as much before Winter. Yes, I will miss them too. Groceries are not really fun to visit, plus kind of dangerous with covid delta droplets just all over the place. People now keep touching the produce without washing their hands. Terrifying right? Take care.

    Raspberries, the sweet tart taste always brings me back to when I was a kid. Every time, it transports me to the roadside ditch where I’d routinely feast on wild raspberries.

    • It’s the roadside ditch and childhood backyard wonderland that gave us the most delicious of flavors and memories. I grew up climbing guava and mango trees. Fruits them are mostly free. We plant our own bananas, jackfruits. We still have a wild berry tree in my childhood home. Life seems more wonderful in the past. Thanks.

  4. Great post and I totally agree with you. This summer I have to most indulged in fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms, it’s a bit more expensive but I get the real taste of apricots, cherries and all of the above.

    The photos of those colorful, bright fruit are lovely and a nice cheerful delight on this autumn evening here in Canada.

    I agree with you that one of the delightful surprises and comforts of the pandemic was being “forced” to stay local and explore amenities we never cared to before and those that we’ve taken for granted. Am I ever glad I got to explore our province more and to see the unexpected beauty of the North.

    More than ever, it’s important to support local businesses who have been ravaged by the pandemic lockdown.

    Thanks for this uplifting Wednesday post!
