After nearly two weeks spent in California, I’m finally home and it feels strange to no longer be two blocks from the ocean. I already miss the crashing waves and smell of eucalyptus.
I worked via laptop most of the time I was away, so it wasn’t really a vacation. Still, it was amazing to walk down to the bay when I was done for the day and work with the windows thrown wide open because the weather was so lovely. I’ll likely be back again in early December and I’m already making lists of things I didn’t have time to do this time. Longer bike rides and boating, the aquarium and the markets.
California was golden days and the perfect blend of warm and cool. Now I’m home and the heat seems to have burned off for the year. It really feels like the start of autumn and I’m looking up and waiting for the leaves to change. Its been more than five years since I was last in school and summer blends into the other seasons with no clear delineation. This year feels different.
