I love creative pursuits and recently I picked up my paint brush again. It has been great therapy and I have felt the need to use vibrant colors and paint cactus. I live in the desert and love cacti . They all have their own unique personality to me. A red mountain stands tall right in front of my house. One of the paintings represents that mountain. ❤️

Today I’m cruising down I15 on an Adventure with my daughter Ashley to Laguna beach while she participates with her art in the art walk there . We are taking her big old van and sleeping in it . Pray for me I’m scared to death 🙏 and as always don’t tell Mom till it’s over lol. I feel it’s fitting to blog our grand adventure. Life can be hard, so adventure on when you can, even when it scares you.
We walked down the path to the beach again and rather than take my #cannon I took my Iphone along for the convenience of my #Iphone7+ camera. Which I love! I was focusing in on a picture and my phone died. I about threw myself in the sand and had a tantrum. I guess the universe decided I wasn’t being present enough. It was a tough time. I missed a large rock with green algae sitting on the beige sand with the big blue sea in the back ground. A sail boat, just a neutral colored sail boat in the distance slowly moving along against the pale blue sky. I missed shots of a wonderful bird, the biggest waves I’ve ever seen at high tide and bunnies, live bunnies, munching on grass on the trail. There was a man singing and playing his guitar to a small group. Telling this story will help me remember. I took a zillion pictures overall. I captured the sun going down over the ocean our first night along with Mike’s first time ever to play in ocean 💦 water. Over the next few days I captured many flowers 🌺 and succulents with my camera on the trail. I picked a few flowers and pressed them into a book. I captured the waves breaking on the 🌊 beach. I got pictures of the sun setting and pathways, stairs, architecture, birds, sand and sea. A seal named freckles sat on a rock he visits everyday and posed for us. It was a buffet of colors and smells. I ran around on that beach gathering treasures, playing in the waves and climbing stairs till my calves screamed at me in pain. I got pictures of me and my love and pictures of my daughter and her art featured in a #Laguna art studio for the first time. #Proud mom. I savored every minute of it and can’t wait to go back.
