"Climb the mountains or walk the beaches and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
John Muir - Our National Parks, 1901.
We're in California for a few days to celebrate our (this is unbelievable) thirty-seventh wedding anniversary. Spent two afternoons at the beach - Scott is painting and I'm walking and reading. The beaches are beautiful, uncrowded, warm, and relaxing. We're happy together.
