Playing Tourist

Many times living in a beautiful place we take it for granted and don't really enjoy what we have. That happens in our spiritual lives as well. We often forget the gift we have been given and don't utilize and appreciate it. Coming back from Humboldt County Lenore and I decided to take the Avenue of the Giants. It parallels Highway 101 so you still get to where you are going just as in life. The major difference is that it goes at a much slower, quieter pace and you really get to enjoy the most amazing sights up close and personal along the way. There are massive Redwood Groves, giant ferns and the meandering Eel River close by to keep you company. Plus there are plenty of pull outs for you to pull over and enjoy it which we did. Slow down and experience the beautiful gifts that God has given you and have a wonderful day. God's blessings, chris

    1. I'm not much of a fashionista Sophia but I will stop by and check out your blog posts once in awhile if you leave a comment. I am more of a T shirt and blue jeans kind of guy with a plaid, wool, long sleeve shirt when it gets colder in winter. I like the photgraphic style of the images on your blog it is easy going and comfortable and real.
