My idea of fun

meditatingatLimekilnMy idea of fun is pretty much practicing yoga and meditation…and sometimes it’s really fun to do these things outside in a beautiful setting.

limekilntentsOk, those are not my only interests and fun outlets in life, but when I get to combine nature + yoga + meditation, I am a happy camper!  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun.)

These are some shots of our camping trip last weekend to Limekiln State Park in Big Sur, CA. I really did roll out my mat and practice, and I found that the vestibule of our tent made a perfectly secluded little spot for my zafu, so I could meditate. It’s very peaceful there, with all the campsites nestled near a babbling brook that drowns out most of the extraneous noise and soothes you to sleep at night. If you walk one direction, it leads to trails among the redwoods. If you go the other way, you walk out onto the beach with its spectacular rocks and cliffs.

There you have it – that’s my idea of fun.
