Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World

Christopher Columbus

Explorers curious about the world beyond. They not only followed the sun but learned to navigate the dark nights at sea using the stars.

Or, like Christopher Columbus, finding the light of the moon or the glimpse of a sunrise, becomes your guiding light to keep exploring. Explore somewhere new or simply explore a new day. Our trip to Death Valley National Park was full of exploration! Such a diverse area to explore and discover an outdoors like no other and the lowest elevation in North America.

We also use light houses to guide those at sea. A necessity to safely navigating safely dark and dangerous coasts.

Wrapping up a day sometimes comes too soon as when the sun begins to descend behind a mountain signaling that darkness is arriving.

Do you seek light or dark more? I seek light. The light of day, whether it be natural or man made sends me forward with purpose to accomplish something, anything even if it’s just to hug my family. However, when the day is done, I find respite and rest in the darkness. It’s quiet, meditative,

A favorite vacation is one where you can sit and watch the sun rise (or set). I just returned from Baja Point near Cabo San Lucas. Here’s our first and our final sunrises!
