Happy Friday y’all…throw ya hands up! Well, January was sort of a blur. Fastest month on record, I’m guessing. Though an exciting thing did happen here since I posted last week…RAIN!! Yes, we felt raindrops on our foreheads here in Southern California for the first time in what seems like a decade. “Hollywood showers” may be resumed soon. 🙂 So, drought and earthquakes aside, 2014 is moving right along. Another place that is not unfamiliar with drought and perennial sunshine is Australia…and this week’s Foto Friday is from a little place called Port Fairy in the state of Victoria. When you live in a dry climate like California’s, you really appreciate the sight of a rainbow when you see it. The ocean is always mesmerizing to me, but combine it with a heavenly arc of primary colors pouring into the horizon and you’re gonna catch a giddy excitement on the faces of most who witness it. I’d love to see rainbows more often, but it’s like those Thin Mints Girl Scout Cookies…if I had them throughout the year, I might not have the same fervor as I do when they magically appear on my doorstep every March (making space in my freezer as we speak). A heartfelt thank you to Mother Nature…and the Girl Scouts of America.
Ok, so I’m a few weeks late on kicking off this “Foto Friday” thing I committed to doing every Friday of 2014. I blame the Nyquil hangover (since I didn’t have any other shots on NYE). So, like my fellow gringo hip hoppers the Beastie Boys say…Let’s Kick It! This is an image from one my favorite places in the world…Laguna Bacalar, Mexico. I keep telling people, “wait ’til you see that water…wait ’til you see that water. It’ll make the Caribbean jealous!” This is a lagoon. White sand bottom. Warm like momma’s bathwater. An uber-chill spot on the globe that is still very much beyond the travel radar. And I’m just fine to keep it that way 🙂
Today is a great day to celebrate the beauty of our planet. As the world keeps turning and providing us with the resources we need to survive, we should all take the time to appreciate our home in this vast universe and re-focus our efforts on living a more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle. Before I head out on my hike today to soak up some oxygen, sun rays and enjoy the sounds of the birds…I’d like to share a few of my favorite nature spots from around the world. Happy Earth Day 2012 my friends!
