Rem and I went to Sea Ranch the day after the election. It was just lucky timing, but I’m so glad we had time away from our computers and phones due to severely limited cell coverage and v e r y slow internet. We also didn’t turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper.
Instead of focusing on bad news, I took walks and Rem went on bike rides.
Crashing surf churned up extra foam which made it look as if someone had used the wrong kind of soap in a dishwasher.
We sat in front of the fire and watched the flames instead of watching the news.
I took a good, long walk on most days.
One afternoon we baked focaccia.
I spent lots of time crafting too, but I’ll show that in another post.
We also took a long drive one day, going north and then turning inland to follow a road we hadn’t been on before. We ended up in Boonville and visited the Anderson Valley Brewing Company.
Do what you can to keep your perspective. Treat yourself and those around you with love and kindness. Long walks, especially on a beach, were great for me.
Thanks for the visit.
