California Dreams: a week in pictures

I feel spoiled. I spend a whole week in California. Nooooo I have not been star gazing in LA during The Oscars (but could not resist watching it live on tv of course, especially being in the same time zone for a change). I have been hanging out in small beach towns North of San Diego. My daily routine started with a run on the beach. It keeps amazing me how many surfers are already in the water early mornings. What a luxury it must be to hit some waves before going to work. Californian lifestyle in these smaller beach towns is so laid back it just forces you to go in lower gear. And that is exactly what I did. A week of relaxing, thinking, planning, dreaming whith the soothing sound of the Pacific in the background. I even managed to finish a book that I bought at my favourite bookstore in New York, The Strand. An out of print book "Sonia Delauney: The life of an Artist" by Stanley Baron. It has been a fab week, California dreaming!...... and now back to the Amsterdam circus :))

  1. I love the sound of this post! So much happy energy and life in your 'voice'. It makes me smile from ear to ear! :)

    California is wonderful and I can so relate to that lazy laid back beach culture. It's the same in Sydney and I too used to gaze at the surfers catching the dusk waves before heading off to work. From wet suit to work suit..! :)

    Darling, I am so determined to catch up with you somehow. What is your schedule like for the next few months. I would be thrilled to pop over to Amsterdam but don't want to intervene your flow. Please touch base when you have a moe.

    Lots of love and hugs

    xx Charlotta
