Today we did one of our favorite things. We hiked around Point Lobos, a protected area of seashore near Carmel, California. The day was perfect. Temps were in the high 60s and the sky was a perfect blue. We even saw one father and his daughter with bathing suits being chased by the surf on a protected beach.

The sky was bright blue, and sea lions provided background music. Tide pools were filled with animal life, including cowardly crabs that dove for the water when they saw the slightest movement.

I think I would grieve if I knew that I would never see the ocean again or smell the distinct seaweed odor that spreads on the breeze. The ocean is the best elixer I know for a cluttered or tired mind.
