*Tips for the empty-nesting & midlife years & yummy veggie recipes
Where is it that you feel happiest? For me it is sitting on the sand and listening to the sound of the waves... For eight years I lived in one of the most beautiful areas of California. I lived a few blocks from the beach in San Diego, CA. I spent most days walking or running on the beach and finding refuge from busy days of graduate school. These days we live inland in Northern California (NorCal), but I find ways to escape to the Pacific. Here a few of my favorite areas in NorCal to visit to reconnect with the ocean and nurture my soul.
-Marin Headlands. This area is just outside San Francisco and it has majestic views of the ocean as well as views of the city. There are many rugged hiking trails as well as areas to picnic on the beach.
-Point Reyes National Seashore. Pt. Reyes National Seashore is a vast expanse of protected coastline in Northern California. There are incredible sandy beaches to picnic on and the views are endless and serene.
