He was adorable, and the perfect addition to our celebrations today. I was kicking myself over leaving the camera back in the hotel, but ultimately I was just grateful to spend the afternoon with the fella.
Along with him, we had a buffet of special visits. We also stumbled across an eagle, which literally had me cheering. We spotted a whale (yay!). We spent the morning with a curious crow, and spent the late evening watching the seagulls. We stopped on the side of the road to take a picture of a horse trotting down 101....complete with a headless horseman on top. Our cell phone photo didn't capture him, but alas I'm not worried because one year ago exactly, we spotted the exact same headless horseman and his horse on the same highway and took pictures galore. It's becoming a tradition, I think.
I was thankful for all the messages the animals carried with them to us. It made our day pretty darn perfect.
it was a full day of celebrations:
We started the morning off watching the sunrise.
We took time to acknowledge our loved ones who have passed on with a burning candle, with some photos and trinkets they passed on to us.
we left an apple out.
We celebrated our anniversary over dinner on the beach.
found some pretty stones in local shop.
We picked up the best pumpkin spice chai latte you've ever had, and enjoyed it watching the sunset.
soulodge started, yay!.
And, my favorite part really: we buried our faces into an apple pie I baked the day before we left- a nod to the harvest ending.
the sunset was beautiful and memorizing; I completely spaced taking a photo until it set behind the clouds:
honestly, not my best camera day, but who cares?
I loved every second of it- I don't think I'll be forgetting it any time soon.
How did you celebrate this special day?
