In My Perfect World...

In a perfect world, I would have a log cabin in the woods in the mountains and a cottage like home near the ocean to live in. They are my two favorite places....the ocean and the mountains.

This weekend I had the opportunity to get away for the weekend at my friends trailer at a campsite in Cape May. It wasn't exactly camping nor roughing it in the woods. Unlike some, we had all the amenities of home...running water, a bathroom/shower, wide screen TV, electric, stove etc..

But, we still had the feeling of being in the woods...connecting with nature. With the other campers, we lit our fire at night in the fire pit, we sat around just bonding and talking. It was a great feeling. The air was clean and the smell of the fires lingered in the air. It was just so peaceful and quiet.

The best part was that we were only 10 minutes away from the ocean. In the morning, we packed up and went to the beach. Spent the day absorbing the sun, listening to the sound of the waves and then the most wonderful, peaceful thing happened. We were able to watch dolphins frolic in the water. They came in pairs... jumping out of the water for us to watch. More came, then a mother and her babies. The dolphins stayed in front of us for like 15 minutes. I just wanted to swim out to them and play along...

The dolphins weren't that far off from the beach. It was the most beautiful thing to watch and a calm feeling came over me.

When we were ready to leave, we packed up and headed back to the campsite. Barbecued dinner and then relaxed...and we knew we could do it all over again the next day.

It was a really great weekend. I felt I was able to get a piece of my perfect world, even if it was only for the weekend. A getaway that was much needed...

In a perfect world, where would you live?

I would be at the beach. I lived at the beach for four and a half years and I loved it! I cried when I left. I love the ocean. Sounds like you had the best weekend, I am so happy for you.

Love and Blessings,

AC,

My perfect world, like you, includes two places....

One: My past house in Maine, on the Crooked River just north of Sebago Lake. Twenty six acres of fields and woods located on the cleanest river in Maine. The huge rocks in the river made for great relaxing sounds for us at the fire pit with blankets, or to fall asleep with on the porch. The wood deck truss bridge to our property was our 'door bell'. The winters were awesome and picturesque. AC, I know you have a trend toward the warm and sunny sand and ocean. But I have to tell you, waking up to three feet of fluffy snow when you don't have to go to work, and there are several new snow mobiles in the shed, is just alright for me! hehe

Two: Southern Israel. My cuz lives there, and their culture is about as old as the dirt it is built on. Great to learn about. The architecture in the area is incredible, as most of the country was built many hundreds of years ago. The landscape is so undeveloped and untainted. And floating atop of the water in the Dead Sea would be a treat.

Hey anonymous....but you really aren't anonymous to me...haha

Anyway, thanks for sharing your favorite places. I haven't been to Maine yet, but hope to get there one day. I hear it's beautiful. Of course I'll be visiting when there isn't the white fluffy stuff on the ground :0)

How is your cousin doing in Israel? Did she cut her new CD yet?
