We’re home. We’re back from Cambria, CA!
We had a wonderful, peaceful, soothing, gentle and adventurous time! It was so good to get away for a couple of days with Corey and spend some time together–just us. It has been years since we have been able to do that and I am sooooo happy we did it.
WE REALLY DID IT!
My lupus and multiple sclerosis behaved for the most part. I had some weird symptoms showing up here and there but for the most part I think I felt better because I was so relaxed and distracted. My walking every day has really helped in the long run when it comes to my ability to walk around and explore new places and my ability to stand for long periods of time. I do still get store fatigue but I could stand quite a bit and what was interesting was that the sun didn’t bother me too much until the later afternoon. The temperature was definitely cooler than LA especially at night but even during the day the temperature might have gone to 60. Glad I was given a chance to be in cooler temperatures because it sounds like LA is going to get hot over this next week or so. Blech. But first things first and one day at a time I’ll make it there.
There was a jacuzzi spa jet tub in the room so that helped my body immensely. I think if I had one of these I could get into every day my MS and lupus would be very happy. I’d be getting that massage I needed daily. Oh well. One day. I can dream. We were also able to get massages before we left to drive home which were lovely. There was a boarded walkway from our hotel, through the trees and towards the beach. Wow! What an amazing walk and sunset that was. I tell ya. There’s nothing like hearing frogs and ocean waves at the same time. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced that. And the sunset was magical.
The people there seem happy and are incredibly friendly. We had a conversation with each local we met. They were so welcoming. I think perhaps it may have been partly because the economy has been way down since last November but I also really believe that this is how they are in general.
I have lots and lots of pictures to share with you soon once I get them loaded. This trip came at THE PERFECT time…as my life is hitting the next turning point…there is no mistake we took this trip when we did.
And to finish, I’ll say that years ago we headed north from LA to San Simeon to see Hearst Castle and that was neat. Hearst Castle is quite an experience. What a view from up there. That night we traveled a bit south to see what was going on in Cambria since it seemed like there was nothing happening in San Simeon. It was dark and the businesses were only open for a few more hours. Those few hours made a great impact on our lives and we knew we had to come back someday. Well that someday came this past weekend and after being there for less than 48 hours I can honestly say it has now made an imprint on my soul. May sound hokey but I believe it’s true. Actually, I know it’s true. What a beautiful, spiritual and peaceful place.
UH OH! I HAVE BEEN BITTEN BY THE CAMBRIA BUG!
I can think of worse things…can’t you?
