California Dreaming - The Magic Onions

California Dreaming

We had a glorious morning surfing.

We got to the beach early when our shadows were long and the gulls were warming their cold night feathers in the early morning glow from the sun.

The new sky was impossibly blue and the water was warm and inviting.

Kitty is a cautious surfer and prefers not to stand up unless the wave feels ‘totally right’. Teddy, on the other hand, thinks he’s in line for Wold Cup Surfer of the year. It’s like he was born to surf.

We all agreed… there’s nothing more invigorating than the beach in the early morning.

And we also realized how much we will miss this beautiful part of our lives if we do follow or plans to move away next year. How could we not miss this with all of our hearts?

Blessings and magic,
