Relaxing

I enjoyed a deep breath just now, remembering how relaxing our morning in Avila Beach was. Great conversation with friends and family, strolling the town and waterfront, and this scene riding the trolley back to Tripp.

Looking to the right into the sun, the peaceful bay deepened the relaxation.

Not much more than an hour later we were flying past the same spots on our way to circle familiar Morro Rock, when I snapped this view of the bay with the sun behind us.

Relaxing and fun as the trolley tour was, this Tripp Tour went far beyond relaxing into the realm of enchanting refreshment. At the point of the bay, this old lighthouse (now apparently without Fresnel lens) stands as a beacon for tourists.

The calm bay and Avila Beach Pier evoke stillness in my soul again, capturing in this pic the quiet I felt suspended in calm late afternoon air after the memorial we attended there the evening before.

When I leave this plane, maybe I can soar silently and effortlessly again over scenes such as this.
