What a wonderful adventure! Our Second Annual Girlz Road Trip to Ocean Beach, California was such FUN!!!
Marnie and I had a blast and are still sort of on “vacation time” in our heads…there’s still beach sand between my toes! Here’s the view from our patio…the beach was literally right across the street!We got up early every morning (what’s up with that?–we were on vacation!) because we loved walking along the foggy shoreline searching for treasures…the air was so cool and damp and sweet and healing for us Tucson desert babes…the colors and textures of seaweed were amazing…
and we brought lots of sea detritus (isn’t that a groovy word?) back to our hotel room courtyard patio…to dry on our wrought iron table…hoping to use it for lots of cool art projects! We even saw beach crop circles…And the colorful hippie throwback street art that we so love about Ocean Beach…I had a chance to visit with my dear friends Sandi & Ski at their beautiful WindSong Gardens in Santee…Sandi is my soul sister and Ski was instrumental in giving me the wings I needed to find the life of joy I have in Tucson!
What a wonderful, relaxing, quenching time I had on our Girlz Beach Trip!…I had such fun refilling my nearly empty tanks and drinking in the sight and smell and feel of the beautiful Pacific Ocean from the beautiful courtyard of the Ocean Beach Hotel (we LOVE this place!) with it’s window onto the beach where every night we’d watch glorious of sunsets…(while commenting on all the colorful “characters” that make this old hippie beach community so charming!)
It’s going to be very hard to get back into the swing of things!…I still hear the waves in my head and crave the long, cool mornings sipping coffee at Java Jungle, shopping at all the funky beach shops, eating delicious cheeseburgers with icy chocolate milkshakes at Hodads, and just sitting for hours on the beach with Marnie sharing our secrets & stories and giggling like schoolgirls together!
What a beautiful time we had!…we’re already planning out Third Annual Ocean Beach Girlz Road Trip! Meanwhile, this is what we remember most…beautiful sunsets…and very happy times together!I’ll try to get the October schedule done for fabulous Cottage classes in the next couple of days–please note there are some schedule changes on the September schedule as my Sweetheart is surprising me by whisking me away for a few days on an autumnal camping adventure to celebrate my birthday on the 17th! Yiiiippppiiiiieeee–the “vacation mode” continues!
Love to you and yours from the Happy Hippie Beach Bunny!
