Photography: California Vacation, Part One

CS Sherin, August 1, 2019

We had a great time in the Bay area this July. From state beaches to seeing the ancient redwoods in Muir Woods, nature was where it was at — and is at. In general, we consider a good vacation one in which we can connect with nature, relax on a beach, encounter other cultures and diversity, and walk for many, many miles each day to explore nature and local experiences.

Being near the ocean and in the woods, and out in the sunshine with the cool ocean breezes brought me a great deal of peace, strength, and even some real, lasting rejuvenation. I am thankful for the experiences and movement.

To start, here are some close-ups from some of the hand full of state beaches we visited along Highway 1:

That’s all for part one of my California vacation photos. Stay tuned next week for another installment.

In the meantime, you can see more photos from this trip (that won’t be featured here) along with an article I wrote for the Rollerbag Goddess website — The Complete Guide To More Sustainable Travel. And if you haven’t visited the Rollerbag Goddess lately, they are up to some very exciting things over there. Go check it out, and I’ll see you next week. 🙂
