I choose YOU sunrise! I choose YOU. There were many mindful and meaningful moments along the way on our road trip but this is the image I decided to share. There were the gigantic breathtaking redwoods, the lush green forest that made me feel like I was traveling through a fairytale, the unique moody coastal travels and the long stretches of highway, all worthy but this one is special because it was the very first image I shot out of the 167 I took. I love that the sun was on my right rising up and the full moon was to my left fading out. I loved the headlights of the car driving towards me and the dust that was kicked off it's tires, the wires, the high wires I've loved since I was a girl in the backseat of the car, daydreaming. I tried to click the shutter at the right exact moment when the sun was lined up with the tall wire structure. To watch the sunrise was a gift our first day. Mornings are peaceful and hold a sacred quality that no other time of the day can compare with. I'm not even a morning person but I can really appreciate what it has to offer.
We of course had people moments too. Those moments are priceless but they will be featured in our road trip video that I will be working on soon. I really loved the Northern part of our state and into Oregon coast. I can see why there are so many coffee huts up that way. I wanted to have coffee in my hands many of the days moments. I got to wear my handmade beanies and warmer layers in the middle of summer. I felt like I could fit right in with the Northern folk. If I could just get motorcycle man to agree to the mild gray weather they seem to have more of and the fact that the big big stores are not so near by. I feel like I could do it but vacations maybe always have one feeling that way.
I wonder what Christina was up to this past week while I was on the road. I'm so very curious to see. I hope you will go see too:) Just click HERE AT 22 LIMES and you will see what her mindful eye captured.
