CARMEL BEACH, AT SUNSET
Just returned from a 10 day vacation, driving along the beautiful California Coast, where we saw the magnificent Redwoods in Northern CA; stopped in Sausalito for breakfast; drove over the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco; had dinner along Cannery Row in Monterrey, then stayed in Carmel. We drove through Big Sur and stopped at Nepenthe for brunch. Then on to San Simeon, land of Hearst's Castle, to collect moonstones on Moonstone Beach at Cambria Pines. We took our dog Boomer with us, and we had a grand time. Each time Corbett and I return to the Northern California Coast are spirits are renewed by the beauty and tranquility. Visiting the redwoods is a spiritual journey in itself. These magnificent trees can tower to a height of 350 feet, and they can be thousands of years old. Walking among these giants, smelling the dampness of the fog, and experiencing the absolute stillness of the forest is for me, an experience of transcendence and the divine.
