As the sun set, so did our love for all things Laguna.

Our adventure was worth it . We watched sunsets, saw high tide and played in the waves. The tide was so high, the waves unexpectedly swept our things out to the ocean, including my shoes. However, we quickly sprung into action and saved things. My shoes were brought back to me later, when two boys saw them come in with the waves and they ran out and got them. 🙂 We slept in the van, ate Tacos and gelato, and I bought toe rings. We saw old friends and made new ones. It’s a small world. We participated in a sunset candle light vigil for the people of the Las Vegas shooting. We each took a flower and walked out to the ocean and threw it in. It brought more emotions to the service than I had anticipated. My highlight was painting in front of the art gallery where Ashley has her art. There in Laguna beach, on the sidewalk of pacific coast hwy 101. The sunsets were amazing and I painted a picture of my representation of one 🙂 As the sun set, so did our love for all things Laguna.

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. 

Lavender Fields, small towns and going home.

I was heading up north on I15 to see my Mom and family with my oldest daughter and we saw that the Young Living Lavender farm was in bloom. We are always up for an adventure when roadtripping, especially because we get so bored in the car!  We pulled off the highway to go check it out.  We found a good area and got right down in the dirt. We took in the smell of lavender and of course took pictures 🙂 Where did you adventure to this summer ?

We were visiting Laguna beach area for the first time and fell In love with it. As we were walking down to the art studio where my daughter just recently got to put her art we passed this house. It makes my heart sing to see Porches pots, and succulents, oh my ! I love quaint cozy spaces and color !  I see why artist love it there, my creative juices ran wild. I love my #Cannon but I wanted to travel light this time so I used my #Iphone7+  as we walked some of the paths I paused to take pictures of the succulent and flowers. I picked 3 flowers shown in this bottom pic and smashed them in a book turning them into the art project in my previous post. Other than that I promise I left the other flowers to grow and bloom for everyone else to enjoy ! My daughter in heaven by her art at the studio #mysticarts 🙏❤️The big beautiful ocean shots I got that look like a postcard . No editing required . I want to go back to my salty adventure
