Fiery Friends & Fine Sunsets (Plus A Special Announcement!)
I can’t believe it’s been 5 days since I last posted. There’s a truth to the saying that time flies when you’re having fun, especially when you’re in magical spots such as Cape Blanco. Between our multi-daily hikes, spectacular views & lighthouse hosting we really haven’t felt the need to go or do anything else. This place is all-encompassing & all-providing for both the spirit and the soul. Feel the need to renew and regenerate? Just spend a month in this wild and wonderful place and I guarantee you’ll be filled to the brim.
Besides, people have been coming our way so our social circle is right on-site! Just this past week Chris & Cherie had several buddies in camp which led to a relaxed evening of chatting following by a total treat -> fire dancing! I’ve only ever seen fire dancing a few times (mostly in Hawaii), but never in such an intimate and close setting…and I can tell you it is something else. Sweeping curves and swerves of light, moving & spiraling to music with the rumbling rush of fire in the background. It is beautiful and it is MES-mer-ising! My photos don’t do it justice, being more of an artistic interpretation (dances with fire lens?), but I like to think I caught a small sense of the fiery atmosphere that night. WOW!
Nature has also provided some fire of its own. This month we’ve had some of the most spectacular weather I’ve ever seen on the Cape. Between days of mist & wind we’ve been given perfectly gorgeous sunshine and fine sunsets. We took advantage of just such an evening a few days ago, once again with Chris & Cherie, hiking out to an isolated viewpoint for some wine, snacks and free sunset theatre. It was yet another amazing evening with nothing but nature’s light, the wild cliffs and the lonely beam of Cape Blanco lighthouse in the mist. Paul & Polly relaxed by the picnic table while I got to take a bunch of cool pics with my new “models”. Ah yes, talk about food for the camera and the soul!
Oh and did I mention the Nealy’s are back in town? And finally, this time I did get a pic of them…at least with one of their 3 dogs. We’re planning a few more days together and possibly even a big smoke cook-out. What can I say, we’re just social butterflies…
But with all this gorgeousness perhaps you’d like to join us? Virtually that is. Chris & Cherie just did a great write-up of their lighthouse hosting experience and have decided to top it off with a real-time **live** chat & video tour of Cape Blanco Lighthouse at 4pm this Saturday…and we’ll be there too! The foursome of Technomadia/WheelingIt will be together on video for the first time ever and who knows what craziness we might get up to? If you tune in, you might just find out
