“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
Laguna Ojo de Liebre lies along the Pacific Ocean, about half way between the U.S.-Mexico border and the southern tip of Baja. The lagoon was formerly known as Scammon’s Lagoon, named after Charles Melville Scammon, a whaling captain who discovered this breeding ground back in 1857.

It has been a somber year for all of us. Being self-contained here at our tiny mountain cabin has given me MUCH time to relax, reflect and grow sprouts while sitting on my couch. Both of us now have longer hair that has remained uncolored. I think I kind of like the new look with both of us sporting silver pony tails, lol.
Our day started out quite spectacularly with the guys fixing a gourmet breakfast for all of us that included bacon, sausage, hash browns, fried eggs, pancakes, and orange juice. Such a treat! Continue reading →
As with so many of you, we have been isolated for the past six months. We are now (cautiously) headed out the door for the next 12 days with plans to smell some fresh air, walk on the beach, hug some redwoods, kick up our heals, and spend time with dear friends. Continue reading →
Baskets to rest string hoppers on before cooking them
I’m almost done unpacking and suitcases have been put back into the cupboards until our next journey. After resting a couple of days, we are caught up on sleep and feel like our bodies are back on California time.
