Retreat from it All

My weekend was spent wandering the incredibly beautiful grounds of Fort Flagler. It was SO nice to step away from everything into wide open spaces, sea air and greenery. I went with my household and what had started as a structured time for the group to be together morphed into just casual good ol fun.

We cooked and ate well. Very well.

And we clocked plenty of beach-combing time in.
And long rambling hikes where we subsisted on Salmon berries...

And what trip would be complete without campfire stories and s'mores?

It was completely apt and totally perfect for me to be able to step away from it ALL this past weekend. Despite getting ready for my first solo gallery show AND the EDGE program both just a few short weeks away. Perfectly perfectly timed.
I now feel recharged and ready to rock my to-do list. Sometimes you just gotta step away.

even just reading this was a breath of fresh air! I'm so glad you feel recharged- I can't think of a better feeling!
