I spent the days following the election in a remote and beautiful home on the coast with a good friend, good food, and the beauty of nature. I have to give her credit for this plan, which she made months ago; it was the perfect time to get away.
The view of the ocean from the balcony and the fog rolling over the Pacific created a perfect relaxing backdrop. There is no sound more peaceful to me than the sound of the ocean crashing on the beach.
We went hiking at Van Damme state park which was green and lush after the exceptionally rainy October we had in northern California.
We passed some people who asked us if we were mushroom hunting. No, but I did take pictures of some mushrooms.
Before heading home, we visited Glass Beach, which is exactly what it sounds like.
