walking sans socks


We went back to Northern California for a quick trip. We arrived Friday afternoon and left Tuesday morning.

Going to California in February is mostly selfish: the weather here in New Jersey is hard and wears on me and the weather in California is not the warmest, but neither is it the coldest. California is the middle path.

I took a photo walk around my MIL's neighborhood the first day and I didn't have to wear socks.


There was vibrant  green and pink and blue.

There was space to breathe. Open space.

There were blossoms and buds waiting to blossom.


Start at the beginning: the first day of our trip.

I went photo walking while my guys went swimming.

And then home to dinner and wine and an early-ish bedtime.


Beginnings are very good.
