I recently returned home from my first-ever visit to Juneau, Alaska. Though it wasn’t an optimal time of year to visit, it was the time I had available, so I decided to go for it. I was eager to see my friend Katy (whose bravery in totally rebooting her life in a new place I admire so much) and to see some glaciers and Northern lights. Lucky for me, I got everything I wanted – close-up views of Mendenhall Glacier, a beautiful night sky light show, some refreshing hiking in the rain, and I even caught a glimpse of a moose. I’ll return one of these years in August, when the bears and salmon do.

The beach at Lovers Point State Marine Reserve in Monterey, CA, was covered in harbor seals during my recent visit. The sight and sound of piles of seals always amazes me.
I’m finding that in California, it’s a fairly frequent discovery, too. This time, I happened upon this view on my way to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, just down the street.
I was so taken with this beautiful, green Spring scene yesterday, walking down Noe Street. Sometimes San Francisco sneaks these little fairy tale moments in where you aren’t expecting them, and I’m so grateful for them.
