My husband Andrew and I were starting to become addicted to the California Coast

After our beautiful dive trip into Point Lobos State Nature Reserve while visiting relatives in California (we’re from Ottawa) my husband Andrew and I were starting to become addicted to the California Coast. Since we’re nearby anyhow, we decide to take a venture into Big Sur and take a chill night or two at the famous Esalen Institute, a natural hot springs that has been used for over 6000 years by the local indigenous peoples, the Essalen tribe, and now is the site of many massage workshops, yoga teacher trainings, and the like. But we’re just here for the evening, because tomorrow, we plan to take a day trip into Big Sur’s Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, where there are a plethora of renowned day hikes (and longer treks too!). When we first arrived this afternoon, we took a short hike down the hill to have a soak in the baths. They’re beautifully situated on the cliffs of the Pacific, some higher up, which are wheelchair accessible, and some dotting the hillside almost down to the ocean. Exquisite.

After a couple of hours though, we feel quite relaxed, a bit “cooked” even, and we pad back to our room at the lodge to take in some private time before dinner. We discuss our upcoming trip tomorrow, and Andrew has a surprise for me. He’s printed out at the front desk a few coloring for grown ups pages and maze art pages depicting the sort of beauty we’re seeing all around us here. There’s a few beautiful coloring for adults pages features ocean cliffs and coves, and a coloring maze series which features local flora including a flowering iceplant – a local succulent, as well as the local Yucca – which used to be used by indigenous people as food, for fibre, and as a sort of soap, a beautifully twisted Cypress tree,  and also Bougenvilla, a bright and beautiful vine which is another common local sight. After each doing a maze, we go for some dinner at the Institute’s Organic Cafe.

One of our favorite pastimes at home before we go to bed is to pop over to some of the top online casinos for a little action at one of the best Microgaming casinos. Tonight, we decide to cash in a few free spins that we got from a no deposit bonus at one of the Microgaming casinos, and we play some Mermaids Millions, a pokies game that just seemed fitting today, after the richness of our experience at the sea. Microgaming has such a great selection of games available at it’s top online casinos, there always seems to be something available to fit any mood…
