Yesterday we spent the day in Monterey.
After the powerful dream I had the night before last, meeting the God of the Sea, Neptune, the day felt like a freeing gift for my courage.
Full rainbow that lasted a half an hour, sea lions, sea otters, dolphins, Whale Fest, history, and of course vegan yums.
Some days you just feel like you’ve made leaps and yesterday was one of them.
Each time I wanted to manifest seeing something, it happened, right after the giant arching rainbow bridge appeared. All things being framed right below it.
I wanted to see sea lions. There they were.
Both at the end of Coast Guard Pier and all along the edge of the beach and rocks feeding. I’d never seen the colonies of sea lions in groups of like 20 or 30 that swim together as they feed. There were several groups all feeding as such with pelicans and cormorants all around.
Once we saw them I said now I just want to see sea otters, and literally 2 seconds after that one popped up from having gathered lunch.
We sat watching him for quite a while…so much fun and such flow. And more continued showing up after that along the sea weed beds.
Dolphins would be nice too I thought.
Then two dolphins appeared right near the beach in an area of sea otters and sea lions.
Monterey is so richly abundant with sea life.
It was all such a gift.
We spent a little time exploring the piers and streets lining the waterside.
Saw some artwork and even came upon a sculpture monument dedicated on my birthday two years ago. Another symbol of rebirth and renewal for me?
Checked out a couple of shops. Picked up some interesting spicy mustards, hot sauces, bbq sauce, and salsas.
And enjoyed brunch at Julia’s Vegetarian Restaurant, which is all vegan and vegetarian and very quaint and sweet. Their menu says, “We feed the creative minority”. 😉
There we had a vegan potato and veggie scramble and a vegan pastry lorraine with their two soups of the day – a veggie and lentil soup and a spicy corn chili. I loved their hot cider with fresh pressed apples, cinnamon, ginger, and clove.
My tummy and whole body and soul were feeling warm and fired up.
On the way back to Moss Landing we stopped at the large fruit and veggie stand in front of the RV park and picked up some things…beautiful oranges, avocados, leeks, potatoes, portabello mushrooms, veggies for the bunnies, and even another thing I’d been wanting to manifest since Malibu when I got the idea – blueberry fig bars. Yum!
And finished off the day with dinner at Haute again enjoying vegan mexican specialties and a walk back under the Full Moon.
This is a lovely little area I know many love and is another great area to check out if you’re looking for places to explore.
Being oceanside for quite some time now….since we moved into the RV actually in October…has been very supportive for cleansing and renewal.
But we are very ready to head to the mountains now and some higher elevation.
Today we say goodbye to the ocean and make our way inland to the forests, mountains, and snow. I’m looking forward to that very much and how the energy will shift.
A beautiful send off from Avila Beach….
From sunrise to bedtime, sea lions were barking all day yesterday. They carry such beautiful medicine: Sea Lion Wisdom
All the ocean creatures were out in playful splendor to say goodbye.
And sunrise right now, before we pack up to leave, is like the colors of the erupting volcano in the book cover I completed while here.
From starfish and oceanside birds, to sea otters and sea lions….Here’s some ocean magick to help you connect with the powerful messages they reflect for you.
