Today was a sweet awesome day. Thank you January 6, 2009. And thank you God.
Today we went to Montana de Oro and it was splendid.
Mom and Pops enjoying the view:
And then I joined them!
So, Mary's birthday is tomorrow, and her dear mother was able to fly in to celebrate. You can tell this is Mary and her mother by the matching amount of hair.
Hey wait a minute! Check out those awesome boots!
For Christmas I got some new hiking boots and this was their first adventure. I hadn't even really worn them around the house since I got them, so I thought a trip along the bluffs would be a good first outing. I was right. It was a great outing, and my feet love my boots, and my boots love my feet. Not a blister in sight! I even did a little jogging in them! Wicka wicka!
Okay, so the whole experience was wonderful. I love the calming effect the ocean has on me. I love the sea breeze as it brings the ocean spray up to my face. You walk out on some of the bluffs and it feels like you are all alone, in the middle of the sea, experiencing the glory and majesty of this earth. When I'm out there, I feel calmer. I feel safe. I feel my soul searching and reaching out to God. It's automatic. This always happens when I'm in nature. I love that.
I need more nature.
So, while we were out there, we saw a few surfers. I thought they were crazy, as I view all the rocks at Montana de Oro a deathtrap, but whatev.
So the first video was his longest ride, although I was busy watching him in real life that my camera was a little ahead of him.
We moved along the bluff a little and had better lighting for his second, shorter ride. You'll notice his buddy joining him in the end.
