“A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet.” Patrick Rothfuss.
There’s something about Cambria. I’m still unpacking it all in my mind. Maybe it’s the rolling green hills so peacefully contrasted next to the rocky moody coast.
Maybe its the fog that blankets the path in front of you and slowly melts away in the sun.
I particularly enjoyed walking along Moonstone Beach. Twice a day. Up and down the wooden path. Admiring the vegetation or the coastline. It all depended what turn you were on.
Maybe it was the seals. They remind me a lot of dogs.
This was our second trip … it could have been the deserted beach we found to ourselves.
And the long drives we took without any destination in mind. It could have been that too.
There aren’t that many quiet places to go to. But this is one of them.
Can I bring the dogs?
I am in a different stage in my life. Seasons ago we were flying all over the world checking destinations off our bucket list. In between we’d socialize with our friends. There was always something going on. And if there wasn’t we’d call a last minute brunch party.
Now we’re more into activities that regenerate our soul. We are both hard working professionals. Putting in long days. Not that this makes us warriors at any level. Other than when we have time off … we want to relax. And unwind. The less crowds the better. Preferably it involves nature. But not too rustic. We’d camp if we wanted that. The perfect balance in feeling like we’re alone somewhere yet still have the comforts of society at our fingertips … or maybe in the background is more like it.
And … most importantly … can we do this and include our dogs?
Enter Cambria – Dogs Are Welcome Here
I’ve been to Cambria previously in the fall. Read about that visit via this LINK. I had a marvelous time. That time I was there for two nights and three days. It was cold (as in 50’s and 60s) but that’s because I’m used to our mild weather.
It rained a bit during that time. So exploring the town was limited to walks when the rain broke.
It didn’t bother me at all because I loved the fog. But this visit occurred mid May.
Spring time in Cambria is absolutely delightful. It’s when the hills are the brightest shade of green and all the flowers are out in in all their glory.
