7 week Road Trip – 3rd week

Nov. 1st, 2013

…and now we entered the traffic and the businesses. We arrived in San Francisco, CA and we immediately we feel it… It is stimulating, exciting, scary to drive here … and… what a beautiful city this is.

Maureen was taking a workshop in Esalen but she opened her home to us anyways. Bless her heart! For a few days, we decompressed in our own space, did laundry and did a LOT of shopping… Clothes, furniture for our home, home stuff… We had a “shopping experience” here.
We didn’t take much pictures as “shopping” is not as inspiring… but we had a really good time, ate lots of pizza, did super good yoga, walk through Castro neighborhood, which by the way, is an “experience” on its own… and man! What a great time we are having!

Maureen came back two days later and we went to “Samovar”, one of my favorites restaurants in Castro. We had a lovely dinner and heart to heart conversations. Great to connect with this, one of my favorite women!

FAIRFAX, CA – WITH CLARA, BENTE, MARTE & TUKKIE

One of my favorites parts of this trip was staying with these amazing women! It’s been 3 years since I moved out of their house and for me, this was a reminder of how things keep evolving, morphing and changing. Late night meaningful conversations, good vibes and so much love and care. These women are full of abundance and generosity in their hearts. I LOVE these girls!

LETTING GO OF MY ART PIECE – GIFTING

This piece has been at Maureen’s house for 3 years now. She’s been storing it for me. I made it maybe 7 years ago in Hawaii and I’m not sure how it made its way to Cali but here it is…! and It is so heavy! that shipping it back to Hawaii would be too expensive ….so I decided to give it away.  I took it to  the “Garage” – a store in Fairfax – They’ll sell it and get the money I guess, it’s ok. Someone will love it. I’m sure it will find the best home.

A NEW JOURNEY BEGIN ~

We rented “Wings”, a campervan. Our plan: to take Scenic Hwy 1 for the next 5 days to Los Angeles.

Our first stop was Santa Cruz. This first day was a little bumpy. Finding a place to park the van and camp was not easy… so not easy that we had to rent a hotel!! We were so upset, we thought we would drive back to San Francisco and return the van the next day. It was way too expensive to rent a camper and pay for hotel as well! There were signs everywhere “No camping/No parking – Violators will be arrested” – and Police were everywhere – and soon we realized this weekend was a long Holiday weekend. Every hotel we would called was booked!! After several tries, we found a room…! and we were so tired and so confused… This was a long day!

A good shower and a warm bed fixed it though. Next day we felt much more optimistic and creative. We watched Agape first thing in the morning and then headed out to Natural Bridges, one of my favorite places in Santa Cruz. A lovely 4 mile walk on the walkboard from head to toe.

The birds must have been migrating…there were so many! Some riding the waves, some flying high, some flying low, some flying in big flocks, some mixed, some not… it was amazing to witness. I could sit there and witness that beauty for a long time.
