Days of June

In California, the weather patterns we're having are known as June Gloom because we start the days with coastal clouds/fog.   The beauty of the "gloom" is that it brings cooler temperatures.   When it rolls back out, we have sunshine.   In the evening it rolls back in, cooling things back down.   I love these days and look for things to do outside.   

My horse is still in recovery for some number of months.   It's hard when you are used to riding 3-4 times a week and finding yourself grounded for such a long time.   Others are at the barn, enjoying their rides on these cooler days.   Honestly, I am so happy that Beau is on the road to health again, but I get a little down when I can't ride.   The horses I had hoped to lease didn't work out.  

A short drive to Cambria on a beautiful day can be just what my soul needs.   Even the drive over on Highway 46, where I find such gorgeous vistas in the Spring, offers its own Summer beauty with the golden grasses that California is known for.   Do you see the big hawk on top of the tree?   I didn't know it was there until I downloaded the photos.  



And the final reward for driving 35 miles....


Take lots of deep cleansing breaths before driving back home again.   And then plan to do it again....maybe today.

I love Florida, but miss the hills and mountains of my Southwest.

These are amazing shots. I wish Beau a speedy recovery and hope you find something in the interim, remembering "this too, shall pass".

so beautiful! love the blue of the ocean. Glad your horse is healing well. no... I didn't see the hawk. glad you pointed him out. I have to keep my eye out for hawks when I'm out with my 5 lb pup. She is hawk bait.
