Even Paradise Needs An Adventure Vacation!

In my dreams.....
I was in Cape Town! I had a wonderful hike, to the top of Table Mountain
and overlooking the city of Cape Town, one of the world's most beautiful natural cities. Mesmerized by the beautiful rugged contours of exposed Earth, revealing to me its majestic curves, I closed my eyes and savor each priceless moment of being one with the beauty of nature. I relaxed, smiled happily, beside me was my hiking partner for life, holding my hands, pressing it gently from time to time, softly whispering sweet words to my ears, "happy to be living in such a beautiful world with you...."

With his soft whisper, I heard the soothing crashing of the waves, I felt the gentle caress of the sea breeze on my skin, I smelled the heavenly scent of wildflowers gracefully swaying in daylight. I was in a place with such a sight to behold and a scent to die for.
I was joyfully agreeing with my hubby's words, my heart singing in glee for being blessed to be in such a wonderful world. I was enjoying every moment of that dream on top of Table Mountain in Cape Town, when all of a sudden I was awakened. The hand that were gently holding mine went loose, the soft whispering became joyful shouting, "Dolphins! Dolphins in parade!"
My hiking partner for life left my side and was already busy with capturing dolphins.
It was then when I realized, that my hike in Cape town was just a dream. I was still in our piece of paradise, in our home sweet home San Diego. Sorry to disappoint you all, but I was dreaming. All of the pictures in this post are from our home sweet home San Diego, not from Cape Town.
I have met a lot of people asking me, you live in paradise, why do you still plan for vacation? My simple reply, " because even paradise needs an adventure vacation!"
Now, do I start looking for flights to cape town to make the dream a reality? Ahhhh! I will let time tell!!
