This Season of Life: 9/52 “day trips”

24 Mar

This Season of Life is a 52-week photography project through which my friend Mary and I will share photos that depict various moments from the current season in which we find ourselves. Having remained friends for the past 12 years, we have experienced a lot of seasons together (and some apart), as we now live in very different places. Having stayed in touch, we continue to share our life experiences and challenges with one another. This has been an incredible gift that continues to shape our friendship. We hope you will follow our Project 52 and enjoy the images that we share.

Living in Southern California, we always talk about how much we have at our fingertips in terms of what there is to see and do. However, we seem to get so caught up in work projects, things to do around the house and other commitments like most people do. This past weekend, we took a day and drove an hour and a half to hang out in San Diego. Our first stop was La Jolla, where we had brunch at a place I’d enjoyed before.

While waiting for our table, we made our way down to the cove, and to our surprise, we found out that it is pupping season! I knew that seals could be a possibility at the cove, but I didn’t realize just how many would be there! It was so much fun to watch them sunbathe, play in the water and wash up on the shore with their pups in tow. This short day trip reminded me of how often we say how there is so much nearby for us to do, and yet, we don’t take advantage of it. Here’s to making more time to disconnect and explore. I think one day trip a month is quite doable! What do you do to explore when life gets busy?

I am sure you will fall in love with her photos and see what a special person she is, just as I have.
