There is No Place Like Home

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with! Is that right?” 

-Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz

After a lunch of clam chowder, barbecued oysters, fish tacos and glasses of Chardonnay looking out over Bodega Bay, I felt happy to be home and not traveling for now.

I’ve been traveling away from home on and off for almost three years plus, always finding myself returning.

I do want to travel this summer. I also want to stop running.

Bodega Head was one of Scott’s favorite spots for us to relax and watch the sunset on our days off or on extremely hot days during the summer, we would pick up sandwiches or pack a picnic lunch.

Today, the flowers were popping with color, calling me home.

“In every out thrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.”
