A rare treat yesterday that I was out and about without Leo in tow..the perks of visiting my parents, always willing and eager babysitters! So after a luxurious couple of hours of running errands by myself, I decided to visit my favorite spot where the view of the mountains and lake are breathtaking.
It's a local secret that as beautiful as this city is during the bustling summer months, as the tourists leave and summer businesses pack up for yet another year
there is another kind beauty that emerges.
The beaches that played host to sunburnt families, tired moms and screaming kids during the long, balmy days now have a chance to
slow down and breathe the crisp, mountain air once more.
The water turns dark and unfriendly, a stark contrast against the brilliant white snow caps along the mountain tops
where the occasional breaks of sunlight through the low lying clouds
casts a streak of light
that it would make even a non-believer
On days like these, I wonder why I ever left here.
Where do you go to find yourself when you're feeling a little lost?
Where do you go to listen to yourself when the world seems to drown your voice?
