What I loved most about our vacation was that it combined the best of two worlds . . . the beauty of the redwoods with my need to be by the sea. There was something curious though, the sea didn't smell of the sea. It really was the strangest thing.
I love birds so of course I had to hang out on the pier and spend some time photographing them.
One of my favorite moments from the trip though would have to be when my husband invited a homeless man to sit with us while he grilled some freshly caught salmon on the BBQ for him. He was nervous and anxious when he first approached us but left with a couple of days of food all bagged up and with a smile on his face. Random acts of kindness really make a huge difference and it's one of those memories that will stay with me for a long time.
Still playing catch up from being unplugged and away for a week but hope to be back into the swing of things by next week.
