sand. toes. yeah.

There was an accident in the canyon and my road home was closed. So I stopped at the beach for an hour to see where the seagulls would lead me.
I had wanted to get back to Topanga in time to hike before dark. But there was an accident in the canyon and my road home was closed. PCH was backed up for miles.

Sink your toes into the sand. Yeah. Like that.
So I took the path of least resistance and stopped at the beach for an hour to see where the seagulls would lead me. Wandering on dry sand was equally as good as a mountain hike, in terms of a leg workout. And it felt marvellous to absorb the different smells and sounds and rhythms of the ocean and its inhabitants.

Sometimes it’s good to let go of expectations and take the opportunities offered.

Well, most times, actually. Don’t you think?

  1. Well definitely! But at the same time while intellectually we know that to be true, we still hold on to (some) expectations. I know this is so for myself a lot of times. “I want it that way! Waaaa…” but a beach, canyon, hiking, all such a treat… we only have cornfields in our neighborhood!
