FC: The Great Outdoors | Summer Trip to Carmel, Carmel Valley, Big Sur & Monterey California.
1: What a beautiful view! | Point Lobos Coastal Hike, we caught exceptional weather. | A house on Seafoam Avenue, so close to Monterey Bay, Fishing trips and wharf adventures filled your early days. Grade School in the Valley...where special rivalry did begin Four square and T-ball battles led to friendship in the end. Innocent carefree time full of sun and baseball games Volunteers and Tigers and more memories yet to name. Too soon we parted ways since as kids we had no rights, We lived our separate lives, out of mind and out of sight. Fast forward to the future and the magic of a Facebook page Quickly reconnecting, realized each had somewhat aged!Shared memories and songs took us quickly back in time Soon a plan to meet again, a new connection perhaps to find. We met on Neutral ground your nerves they might be frayed Insecure you felt; yet not a bit dismayed, for no mistake or error to meet had at all been made that day. Now heading out the Valley I felt this choice was right Memories came flooding back, each stop a marvelous sight. We both love beer and hiking and not "staying on the Trail" Clam Chowder at the Wharf & Those Seahorse curly tails. Calamari? New memories have been made, time going much too fast Junipers hold a new meaning-I smile each time I drive Past. Excited to be on your home turf, to see a world away from Carmel. New places, & new faces so problems go away. Older and Hopefully wiser-let's take each day as it comes & fill each day with adventure as we reflect on the Oceans setting sun.. and the rest of the story remains unwritten.!!!
