My wonderful friend and sister in the Lord, Dawn, is having her last birthday in her 30's this week. I was able to incorporate some of the things Dawn enjoys: photography, flowers, God's creation, adventure, the outdoors and the beach. What a nice day we had at Filoli Gardens and Half Moon Bay both in San Mateo County, CA. The gardens were incredible. The tulips were in full bloom, so incredibly beautiful and unique. The Filoli estate is named from the first two letters of the words: FIGHT - LOVE - LIVE, from a credo "To fight for a just cause; to love your fellow man; to live a good life". Once again, I was left awestruck of God's amazing creation and able to enjoy His goodness.
After the gardens we drove down to Half Moon Bay. We ate at a little seafood restaurant and had Pacific Red Snapper for a great price. Very yummy. We then found our way down to a beach and enjoyed the surf and the tide pools.
It was a nice day to celebrate a dear friends birthday and to enjoy God's amazing creation.
