Perhaps the best part of this trip has been that I’ve stopped on several occasions to take in how beautiful it is here.  Sitting on the beach and watching the sun set, or laying in a hammock while birds twirl around over my head, smelling the roses as the saying goes.  Of course, I come from a pretty scenic area, but I tend to take the Pacific Northwest for granted.

So my advice to you, my loyal readers, is to enjoy a sunset this weekend, or go find some scenic spot near home you’ve never taken the time to find, relax and enjoy.  Maybe a drink or a smoke to help with the relaxation, but if so keep it moderate, so you can really take it all in (that means put the bong down).
