Beauty is Everywhere!

One fun thing about all the trips I took this summer was seeing artistic, inspirational messages in the various airport shops I passed through, whether in Seattle, San Francisco, or Mexico.

Many of us get tired from all the processes involved in traveling, from taking Ubers to passing through security to searching for a decent meal at the airport while lugging around our suitcases.

Seems better to focus on the positive and seize the day!

Picture Perfect Pacific Northwest

I forgot how absolutely beautiful the Pacific Northwest is, especially on warm summer days.

It’s been a great time visiting loved ones and some old haunts where I went to college in Bellingham, WA.

Thinking of Kauai, Hawaii

Kauai has been one of my family’s homes for decades and is such a special place to many. I am hoping we all send great, positive thoughts to the gorgeous island as the locals recover from the flood.

Life Flying By

veg Lately I am feeling nostalgic as the years fly by, and I wanted to share a few pics from years past. To the left, you’ll find me showing off rather curly hair and wearing adorable veggie overalls — so fitting for a lifelong vegetarian. In the photo to the right, my older sister and I are wearing motorcycle helmets from when our dad was doing advertising for a motorcycle company. Life flies by, so seize the day!2012_01_23_11_13_40.pdf000

Coastal Healing

I just returned from a Central California jaunt to spend time with family, honor my father who passed away last year, and enjoy the coast. Taking a train was a refreshing way to avoid traffic and read with a frequent stellar ocean view, though it does add a few hours onto the journey.

If you venture to Cayucos, check out nearby Harmony, a town claiming a population of 18! The town which seemed a block long features some lovely pottery and jewelry and other pieces by local artisans, and a room with free coffee and water for any passersby!

Breathtaking Kauai

kauai tunnelsThere aren’t words, really, to describe the outstanding scenery in Kauai, Hawaii! Even with having been there numerous times because my family made the island home a few decades ago, it is always amazing to see a rainbow and the lush green mountains pouring down into the sea.

One of my favorite places to eat on the island remains my parents’ Postcards Cafe in Hanalei (bottom two photos). They are very veggie-friendly; just ask the server for options.

Revolutionary Granola

Untitled-30_largeWe devoured three bags of GrandyOats Coconola so fast I barely had time to reflect on the products’ attributes. Made of coconuts, this original product is appealing to the hordes of people steering clear of grains and gluten. On top of that, Coconola is organic, non-GMO, oil-free, salt-free, Kosher and low sugar! Something that really stands out is that the bakery is the nation’s first 100% solar powered food production facility, using 288 solar panels.

Coconut is highly popular as a great source of energy, fiber and healthy fats. The products also contain nuts and seeds which add nutritional value. Being a total chocaholic, I especially loved the Chocolate Chunk flavor.

GrandyOats, a lovely business with more than 35 years experience, provides a variety of Coconola flavors for your tasting pleasures, as well as roasted nuts and seeds and trail mixes, all organic. Check out their website and Facebook page to find out more and start shopping!

The Different Sides of Travel

On a recent trip to the Tijuana area, I experienced a variety of senses and emotions, seeing sights that ranged from lovely beaches to neighborhoods in need of some beauty enhancements.  That diversity is what makes travel so fulfilling.
