…and Goodbyes

While I know friends from the States (and other places in the world) will come visit me, there are some things I’m having to say Goodbye to. Hiking in the redwoods last week reminded me there are no redwoods in Costa Rica.

Here are a few other things I’ll miss…

  • The annual trip to Luna and all of the good people who attend every year
  • Bright yellow wild mustard dotting the hillsides, meadows and vineyards each winter
  • The wintering monarchs in Pacific Grove
  • The Lost Coast
  • Vegan scones at Wild Flour Bakery
  • The vineyard seasons…bud break, harvest, autumn leaves and dormancy
  • Mavericks
  • 9 p.m. sunsets
