Why I Love Kayaking…

If you have been following me for awhile, then you know that I am a “water baby” and one of my favorite things in the world is ocean kayaking.

Some people do yoga, some meditate, some jog to find their center ~ to obtain balance in life. I find my center floating in my kayak in the middle of the ocean. I love everything about the water and being on it.

I love gliding through the harbor and looking at all the boats ~ wondering what destinations they have been to…

I love passing by lighthouses…

I love hearing the muted jazz music playing from the catamaran passing by…

I love hearing the faint adrenalin screams from people on the rides as I pass the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk…

I love listening to the seals bark under the pier…

I love watching the surfers catch waves…

I love knowing, that although I cannot always see them, that there is an entire aquatic community thriving beneath me…and I love when the otters and seals are playful and will allow me to float along with them…

I love the sound of splashing water and seagulls, I love the smell of the ocean, but most of all I love the silence. I love the quite peacefulness as I glide through the water and the connection I feel to something greater than myself. It’s a feeling of contentment that nothing else gives me.

And those are just a few of the reasons I love kayaking. Today was a good day!

What do you love to do that helps you find your center?

Just Another Gorgeous Day in California…

Orange-A-Peel

I have a crush on orange these days ~ loud, bright, fun, screams “I will not be ignored!” ~ what’s not to love! 🙂

The Only Failure in Life is in Not Trying…

Life is a Rollercoaster, enjoy the bumpy ride!

A Bad Day At The Beach Is Better Than Any Good Day At Work.

With temperatures possibly reaching up to the 90’s this weekend, it’s definitely looking like beach season is starting. Have yourself an incredible Friday!
