Although we are Floridians, my family and I live in the middle of the state so a beach vacation is definitely my happy place. The combination of sun, salt water and sand leaves me relaxed and happy. For my kids, the highlight was taste-testing every doughnut shop within a five-mile radius. Ormond Beach is 15-minutes to the north of the its more famous neighbor, Daytona Beach.
Here, the association of my village, rents costumes for a selfy at the castle, a walk in the village, a play, a family celebration, an exhibition ... We have costumes from the Middle Ages and other centuries. We also have monks, witches, princesses, knights ... it's Ali Baba's cave!
I spent time in Belize in the early 1990's. My oldest daughter is currently there doing field study work for her marine science degree. She is loving it as much as I did. With contact limited in her remote area, she sends me photos and I paint them and it brings me back to my time there.
I live just by the South West Coast Path, which hugs around 660 miles of the English coastline, from the rocky cliffs of North Devon, through Cornwall and over to the gentle waters of Poole in East Dorset. At least once a week I walk this path. The Golden Cap is the highest point on the south coast of England and I have looked over to it as I walk the coastline near my home in Devon. I recently I climbed up and down the grass clad, golden cliffs of the Cap to the top. The sky was azure, hawks, and a helicopter circled below me and people on the beach were no bigger than grains of sand. The Golden Cap features in my illustration of Dorset, like a bright beacon, shining its light over the deep blue sea.
In March 2020, four days before my flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina closed the borders due to the COVID-19 pandemic and I had to fly from Rio to Brasília immediately. My siblings live here in a beautiful residential complex and they are almost neighbors of each other. It's only 30 minutes from the center of town, but still looks a bit wild, almost like being in the countryside. And that's where I've been stuck ever since. I thank them all heartily. Love, love, love, love.
/// I feel good here with my family, but I also want to express my immense sadness for Brazil, my country that I love so much, for having one of the largest numbers of coronavirus victims in the world. So many deaths could have been prevented.
My Happy Place is the Rhein Riviera in Basel. Here at the river banks is the place where the life happens and everybody gathers. I enjoy the Riviera all year long - to walk when it is cold or to sit there after a swim, grab a drink and some food, draw, play board games, listen to an improvised concert or just to look at the river and the hustle and bustle inside it.
I work in a farm in Sandy Oregon, the fields are overseen by the majestic Mount Hood and my favorite thing to harvest are cherry tomatoes. Sweet little tomatoes come in a variety of colors and they seem to make the trip to my mouth very often.
Some of my favorite Santa Cruz moments always seem to happen on Saturday and usually starts here, at Santa Cruz Westside Farmers' Market! Wonderful organic produce, live music and welcoming energy make this place a great start of your weekend adventures.
The NC Arboretum is a beautiful place with lots of trails and lovely gardens, but this is my favorite walk to take there with my sweet Josie.
