Vintage postcard type illustration of one of the most famous beaches of Cadiz, Andalusia.
The beach is a small cove of the Atlantic Ocean, located in the south of Spain. It is characterized by beautiful sunsets, surrounded by fishing atmosphere and feeling of navigator. Its waves are accompanied by small ships and a historic castle of the city, the castle of Santa Catalina (XVI century).
Long walks on the beach may be a hackneyed activity but there's a reason it's a favorite for so many. This long sandy beach is just a few steps from my current hideaway and I love walking there on a foggy or sunny day. It's always exciting to watch the waves crashing and the shorebirds having a feast. You can keep on strolling down to Morro Rock and see the adorable sea otters too!

I love to bike ride through Crissy Field. It is definitely one of my happy places. I love the plentiful, free parking. I love rolling down the bright green grassy hills with my kids. I love visiting The Warming Hut Bookstore & Cafe, waving to the seabirds at Torpedo Wharf, and then hitting the San Francisco Bay Trail on a bicycle.
My Happy Place is the UC Davis Arboretum which is about 100 acres of horticultural paradise.
It brings me such peace and happiness to meander through it, taking in all the sounds, smells and glorious sights.
Each season presents new floral delights and even some migrating birds!
I treasure this natural space and continue to be grateful for all the gifts I receive from it!
A day spent hiking by a lake in Maine is where I am happiest. The sighting of wildlife and the Jordan Pond House popovers with blueberry tea on the lawn at the end of the day is the icing on my happy place cake.
My happy place is outdoors, and there are amazing places to hike all over the Lake Michigan/Indiana Dunes area where I live. Just blocks from my house I'm lucky to have a bike path that winds through a small wetland area alive with migratory birds, butterflies, other insects, and native plants. It's a calming, centering part of my day to walk this path and observe the changes throughout the year. On my daily walks I've added new species to my bird life list, run into friends, and improved my fitness level. All of which make me, well... HAPPY!
