Monday, Monday

I am in California, along the Pacific coast in Aptos. I’ve been dreaming about this trip for over a month; now, I am here. It’s Day 7 of summer break and I am busy Making the Days Count.

I arrived Friday morning and have been to two baseball games, hiked in the coastal hills in Orange County, driven along the Pacific Coast highway, through a mountain pass, and up the Central Coast Valley before watching the sunset at Seacliff State Beach last night.

Both baseball games were fun to watch, and I even ran into a couple of Astros fans I met last summer in Denver. It is a small world.

Monday Monday, can’t trust that day,
Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday morning, you gave me no warning of what was to be
Oh Monday Monday, how you could leave and not take me. Chorus from Monday, Monday performed by the Mamas and Papas lyrics by John Edmund and Andrew Phillips

I am off to San Francisco after pressing publish and a shower. Yesterday, I made the mistake of relying on navigating without a paper map, not today. I picked one up at a stop in Los Alamos in the Central Valley yesterday. I am going to finish my trip along the Pacific Coast Highway and arrive at my hotel with plenty of time before tonight’s game. The maps app tells me it will take two hours, I am planning for three with a couple of stops to dip my toes in the surf. Below is last night’s sunset with some pounding surf.

Today is going to be a great day, if I can only trust it. So, I’d better jump up, jump in, and seize the day. Making the Days Count, one day at a time making time to be present and patient.

What’s on your plate for the day?

    1. Thank you for taking a peak and stopping by. I am a flatlander and mountains fill me with awe and while I grew up an hour from the gulf coast, the Pacific Ocean is… well brethtaking. Going to make the day count.

    1. Thanks, I finished the drive yesterday and was able to get out and enjoy hearing the surf and seeing the sand and hills. I am flatlander and have been most of my life. I am in awe of mountains. Cool, almost chilly on the coast inland it’s pleasant and comfortable. More to post later. Peace.

Thanks for visiting MtDC. How are YOU Making YOUR Days Count?
