Wilder Ranch State Park. Santa Cruz, California

Hello and a good Monday to you.  How was your weekend? Relaxing? Busy? Ready for the new week?  I hope you were able to take a break and rejuvenate.  Our weekend was quiet, we just relaxed around the home and spent time in the garden.  Our weather cooled down on Sunday so it really was a pleasant weekend to be outside.  Speaking of outdoors last week Thursday two of my daughters and I went to Santa Cruz for a wonderful hike. A spectacular cliffside hike by the Pacific Ocean at Wilder Ranch State Park, two miles north of Sant Cruz.  Continue reading Wilder Ranch State Park. Santa Cruz, California

Moss Beach Landing & Harbor Seals at Half Moon Bay, California

Good Friday to you all!  I trust you had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.  Around here our week started off great on a happy note in the great outdoors.  After months of being stuck at home only venturing out for groceries and errands, our family played hooky earlier in the week and took the day off from work on Monday.  We snuck out for a gorgeous hike in the seaside village of Half Moon Bay.

Walk on the Beach at Pajaro Dunes in Watsonville, California

Watsonville, California is often associated with lush farmlands off Hwy 1 on the Pacific Coast. Here one can see miles and miles of farms growing fruits and veggies off all sorts. Strawberries, raspberries, apples, lettuce, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, artichokes, tomatoes, and much more.  At its core Watsonville is an agricultural community.  But what is often overlooked is that being so close to the ocean, Watsonville also has miles of beautiful beaches. One of these beaches was our destination on a gorgeous fall October morning when my friends Padmini, Rose and I went on a road trip to Pajaro Dunes in Watsonville. Continue reading Walk on the Beach at Pajaro Dunes in Watsonville, California

A Company Sales Meeting in Half Moon Bay, California

Living here in Northern California surrounded by so much natural beauty I feel frequently we do take it all for granted. It’s always here, we can go any time, so what’s the rush? But really life takes over and making that trip to the gorgeous beaches or that beautiful fishing village or hiking on those lovely trails very often takes a back seat. Sometimes it is something as simple as my daughter Sri heading off for a company off-site at one of our local beach town venues Half Moon Bay to wake me up from my “taking all this for granted” attitude.  Continue reading A Company Sales Meeting in Half Moon Bay, California

Point Reyes Station, California

Point Reyes Station is a charming small western town an hour north of San Francisco off Hwy 1. It is a lovely little town no more than three to four streets with plenty of appeal. Think modern health conscious boutiques, farm-to table cafes, farmer’s markets, locally sourced food-items, and hand-made artisanal goods. Continue reading Point Reyes Station, California
