“sunsets”
Sometimes I feel bit sad at the sunset because it means another day is over, and right now, I wish every day was endless (and I can’t believe how lucky it is to feel that)
.
But on this day, after the sunset over Lake Tahoe, mother nature treated me to a little encore #thankyou

“paddle paddle paddle”
Paddle boarding on Lake Tahoe was one of the most beautiful and serene experiences I have had. With its whitewashed rocky shoreline framed by pine trees and perfectly clear and calm blue waters paddling was a breeze (but Deb still managed to fall off while taking this picture) 🤷🏼‍♀️

“bear proof”
Bears are not uncommon in the surrounds of Lake Tahoe. To prevent them raiding the rubbish and being less than friendly to humans (esp small and tasty-looking ones), they have a complex bin system involving a hook-push-pull-lid-lift-handle
.
As I sat by the lake and ate my all-american grilled cheese sandwich I saw several people attempt and fail to work out this system (despite instructions). Conclusion: some bears are smarter than humans 🐻

“hilly city”
San Francisco, in Northern California, sits on the tip of an peninsular surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Bay
.
The whole city is like a scene from a movie; with its hilly streets that police cars fly over grand-theft-auto-style, its expansive pier occupied with hundreds of seals just chilling in the sun, and its cute little cable cars standing small and proud against the all-american car giants 🌈

“golden gate”
Not many things get me out of bed this early in the morning, but sunset overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge was worth it (especially the nap I had afterwards)

“city sky”
If you’ve followed my instagram for a while you’ll know I’m a sucker for a sunset. I’ve always thought the best sunset destination would be on the beach, watching the sun go down over the sea....
But I think San Francisco had something to say about that 🌅

“photos and sunsets”
If you’ve ever tried to sit on the bonnet of a car (especially when it’s not yours) without denting or damaging it in anyway you’ll know it’s pretty tough. It requires a foot on the tyre and a hand on a willing shoulder as well as careful bum placement on the join of the windscreen-bonnet-side-panel and breath-holding-balance

“big sur”
The epitome of the Pacific Coast Highway must be Big Sur; the road cuts into the cliff edge and juts out over the sea with waves crashing against the rocks and boulders towering from above. It’s a beautiful drive (if you don’t look down) 👀

“beach bum”
I love the beach; even when it’s windy so your hair gets in your face, even when you try so hard to not get sand in your snacks but they still taste gritty anyway, even when the sand is rough on your feet and the water is freezing your toes and the sand still gets in your shoes
But as the sun sets over the sea, all is forgiven 💛

“surf life”
The first time I took out a surfboard was on my 24th birthday. I had not long finished university and was in the deep depths of my first year as a doctor in crazy-stressful-scary acute medicine job. In my much needed annual leave I went to Costa Rica and surfed my first wave on the beach in Manuel Antonio... and I’ve never looked back
.
Now, two years on, I’m surfing breaks I’ve only ever dreamed of and working out there are things more important in life than work and how to live it my way 🌊

Exploring the sand dunes and heathland of Pismo Beach (aka. the hills everyone pees behind) ☀️

“beach roadie”
One of my favourite days so far in the USA. Driving onto the sand of Pismo Beach State Park, I was so excited to be driving on the beach with the ocean to one side and mountainous sand dunes to the left
.
I don’t know quite why, but I really loved it 💕 and only got stuck once 👌🏼 (note: don’t turn wheels sharply in soft sand)
.
Did I mention I love the truck?

“jailhouse rock”
Completed in 1929 the County Courthouse is one of the rarer historic buildings in America. Still a working court, the Spanish colonial revival style is a beautiful mix of white wash walls and colorful tiling

I guess if you’re gonna go down, you should go down in style 💁🏼‍♀️
