"Pleasure is spread through the earth in stray gifts to be claimed by whoever will find."
William Wordsworth 1806
We went with God's peace and the gift I received was the overwhelming beauty that the ocean gave me with every new day, from the moment the sun slipped up over the horizon to the roar of the waves through the night.
Ann Morrow Lindbergh in her book "Gift From the Sea" says: "The beach is not a place to work; to read write or think... at least not at first." I so agree, as the sea was all I needed to entertain my mind as it rolled and splashed, roared and crashed, ebbed and flowed in never ending rhythms.

|Cabo Bello beach with our vacation rental, Misiones del Cabo on the far left.|
|49 stairs down to the beach from our unit at the top of the lawn area|
|Bougainvillea hedges lined the pathways which wound around Misiones up hill and down. No lack of exercise here!|
|Flowers are always Earths gift to me wherever they appear.|
|This place was sooo peaceful. Many mornings we had the pool to ourselves.|
|Not much reading ... just content to BE|
|A family of small iguanas skittered around the pool deck.|
|Lunch on our patio always included a game of Scrabble|
|Rule seven was the only one that I obeyed with caution as the waves in our cove were unforgiving in their rough play|
|Each wave that swept onto the beach left the potential of gifts from the sea, treasures to find as they glinted in the sunlight|
|"One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach " Anne Morrow Lindbergh|
|The dry scrub and cactus along the 1/2 mile walk from the main road to our resort. Cruise ships in Cabo San Lucas harbor.|
|Enjoyed two excursions to the city to walk around the marina filled with expensive yachts and to enjoy good Mexican food in several restaurants.|
|Pina Coladas beside the sea.|
|"The sea hath no king but God alone." Dante Gabriel Rossoti|
The sea gave me a place to relax, to be lost in the vastness of God's creation. Each day was a gift spent with my best forever friend who also got caught up in the delight of finding treasures from the sea, tiny bits of turquoise sea glass to hold and remember.
Samuel Trevor Francis 1834 - 1925
"The waves echo behind me. Patience - Faith - Openness - is what the sea has to teach. Simplicity - Solitude ..... But there are other beaches to explore.
There are more shells to find."
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
