52 Weeks in Nature : Week 28

We love the weather here in June and July. The mornings are cool from the misty marine layer that comes in during the night. By 11am, the mist has burnt off and the days are the best kind of hot… in the 80’s and perfect for the beach. We’ve been walking around the lagoon before […]

Five glorious days camping at Big Sur, CA, amongst the majestic redwoods. We were utterly amazed to learn that some of the trees we were walking next to were around 2000 years old!
