Him, Me and the Sequoia's...

I feel quiet today. A bit speechless. Marinating. I couldn't possibly capture in mere words the awe-inspiring time spent in the beauty of Mother Nature this past week but I will try.

In these first few pictures I am sharing, hopefully you will experience the essence of it all. The closeness between lovers, the silent reflection among streams of water, the riveting sounds of large waves crashing upon rocks, the kiss of a waterfall on my skin... and more. So much more.

Nature let us rest, play, dance, tickle, splash and take risks with Her. So much pure fun filled with many little perfect moments.

This place is always so healing for us.

Enjoy. More coming soon...

One of our favorite rest stops on Highway 1...The Ragged Point
Inn. Boho Boy took this picture at one of the lookout points
in the middle of their Japanese garden

A gorgeous sunset we watched at a stop on our way to
Big Sur, California

We arrived! Here is our lovely campsite in Big Sur.
Bussy is in her glories surrounded by Sequoia Redwoods.

Boho chillin' by the creek at our campsite.
Check out my nifty rainbow toe socks.

Hiking through the Sequoia Redwoods

We climbed some rocks so we could watch
the water flow from Mother Earth more closely

A tiny Boho sitting amongst the enormous Redwoods

A rest between trails

This is the waterfall at the end of one of
the trails. We climbed up passed the end
to get up close, directly underneath it

Wearing our Crocs, we were able to walk/climb through the rushing
waters. Sometimes hanging on for dear life to rocks or branches in
order to get from one spot to the next. Crazy but fun.

Throughout our hikes, there were a plethora of what we
called "swimming holes" that we would wade through or just simply

stare in awe at.

We often sat on the rocks down at the creek
a few feet from our campsite. This particular
morning, Boho Boy caught me meditating...
watching my thoughts drift down with the water.

Laying down on the ground, I tried to capture
the tallness of the Sequoia Redwoods

This was the beach steps away from our campsite. Boho Boy
and I climbed up those rocks and watched the huge waves crash
below us. Each day we spent time here napping, reading, sea gem
searching, climbing and dodging the most unpredictable waves (large, small,
tiny, huge).

On our last night, we ran out of food...so we drove up the coast
and found this gem of a restaurant. We sat here at the spot
on the right up high on a cliff overlooking the ocean, trees and
the sunset.

On the opposite side of the restaurant was a firepit outside
surrounded by cemented seats covered in pillows. I fell in
love with the vibe here.

Nearing the end of our trip...feeling rested and rejuvinated!

(Please note: All photos were taken with a Canon Digital Rebel XT by Boho Girl or Boho Boy with the exception of the last one. That one was taken by a sweet stranger.)

hi there!! SO happy that you are home - those pictures were amazing! I've always heard of the forests of redwoods but I have never really seen them before. You have shown me what I have been missing. I'd love to see them someday. (I'd love to hug one someday!) I'm glad you are back - you were missed!

Beautiful you, I'm back again to take a look at your photos because they make me feel so good. It's so lovely to see that relaxed look on your face. I can't wait to see more photos. Oh yeah, I want you to set up a FLICKR account. I can't believe that you don't have one already with all your photo talent!

Hello my lovely...

I missed my daily dose of you! I have to tell you that last night as I pulled up your blog I gasped because your photos look exactly like ours when we went to big sur last year. We stayed at the Ventana camp grounds. The only difference is that Bussy is white, and our Poly is gold!!!! I have to send you a picture when I can get onto my desk top which is acting a bit cranky this week. Its so sweet to have you back. I am glad your trip went so well, but then again, any trip to Big Sur is magical isn't it?

What is that feeling you get when your loved ones are away???

Empty...but now I feel full of you,Cars and Mother nature.

Yeah!!! you're home :)

That picture of the swimming hole looks completely m-a-g-i-c-a-l... I expected to see fairies, hobits and wood sprites peeking out from behind the trees. Instead there was a little boho girl *Mmmmm*

I could SMELL the redwoods and HEAR the rushing water. Did you just love the early break of morning with the sounds of birds singing? My favorite part.

Can't wait to HEAR your voice!!!

love you a bushel and a peck xxxooo

p.s.~ did the boho kitties attack you both with kitty love when you entered your boho home??? ^..^

I am printing the last picture-what gorgeousness! The two of you-and that expression on your face-beautiful, sexy and adorable all at the same time.

As I looked through the pictures-I wished I could share a camping trip with you - I felt like I was sitting with you on the rock meditating-I could hear the trickle of water rushing by.

Loving you and thinking of you my darling.
