Way Too Long!

Meridian, Idaho

A few months before I turned 40, I went on a vacation.


It was amazing! I spent four days and three nights on the California coast in Mendocino.

I came across the pictures I took recently and reminisced about the trip…

First stop was in Muir Woods for a short hike.


Second stop was a view of the hills off of Highway 1.


Third stop was my hotel with a (distant) view of the sea.


My hotel room was ever so lovely…

I spent the weekend hiking, reading, a browsing the quaint Mendocino shops.

Mendo-8Mendo-10The amazing thing to me is that when I took my first solo vacation, I swore that I wouldn’t wait another 40 years to take another one.

But here it is, 18 years later and I haven’t taken another.

I’ve thought about it, but I’ve never gotten around to it.

It’s time to do more than think about it. 🙂

I’m off to browse travel sites and start making plans to solo travel again.

  1. Beautiful photos Kathy. I couldn’t even imagine going solo on a vacation!

    1. It was very peaceful, Lorraine. Long walks along the coast were followed by reading “Absolute Power” by David Baldacci, his first and best book and much better than the movie…

  2. Wow! What a fantastic vacation. The location is perfect for alone time to recharge your energy.
