Rock Day | Bodega Bay, California

    Often times God places people in our lives at the exact perfect moment. That’s how I felt when Isaac and Nate came to visit for a day. Not having seen them in a couple years, it was a great day of catching up and creating new memories. We meandered around Sonoma County to see and sights and sounds, so naturally we ended up at the beach. I’d never actually been to Goat Rock (crazy, I know) so I decided to drive towards it. On our way there, the guys were taken aback by a gorgeous view and rush of adventure to hike down to the giant boulders they spotted. We walked down in the warm sun and came up to the boulders, which provided gorgeous light as the sun was setting behind them. What we didn’t know is that this is a huge spot for rock climbers. There was only one guy left, and he was eager to share tips with the guys. I must admit, I did have a “mom moment” watching Nate climb rock faces in his socks & Birkenstocks (you would too, trust me!). The whole day was just a great time of exploring, but at the same time relaxing. It was so nice and life-giving. Not to mention, these turned out to be some of the favorite photos, capturing natural life as it happens...
