Taking Some Time Away

Sorry for the pause in my posts.  This has been a tough semester, my final one, thank God, and I'm just finishing up on my last paper.  I had the chance to get out to California for a little vacation recently, and I got to experience both the mountains and the sea, all in one quick week.  Vacations always go by too fast, don't they?

This beautiful sunset is from Asilomar, an ocean-front retreat center near Monterrey.  Although I was there for just a few days, we got to relax a bit and enjoy comfortable lodgings and cool ocean breezes.  My sister and I took the famed 17 mile drive not once but twice.  For $10, why not?

I'll write more about my vacation once my paper is done and sent, but for now, I just wanted to say I hope you too can get away before the summer ends.  Taking some time away is so important in our fast-paced society.  We all need a recharge from time to time, and I hope your's will be a good one!
