The Dirty Hippies Get Hitched By the Sea

'There's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline no matter how many times it's sent away. " ~Sarah Kay

On Sept.20, 2014 I married my best friend by the sea. What a perfect way to celebrate our love with friends and family.
Dirty Hippies forever!

My bestie flew in from the other coast just to be at our wedding!
The venue, a friend's beachfront home, was perfect!

And then a mini honeymoon by the sea....

In Nature: A Martin Luther King Tribute

"For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

 As I trekked across the trail yesterday, I thought about what freedom means to me and how MLK's  legacy gave fruit to the environmental justice movement, ensuring that all people have the right to a clean and healthy environment. He often spoke about nature and its importance to humankind. 

To me, freedom is being able to enjoy nature in all of its raw beauty.  I think the best way to preserve nature is to protect it (from pollution and buildings) but to also leave it alone (i.e. no trail improvement projects). Nature was meant to be enjoyed in the raw, sans man's "messings."

Enjoy these photos I took on my Sunday hike.
