Summer Bucket List!

I just saw something on Twitter than we only have about 36 months left until complete and total ecological devastation. I don't know how true that is (never underestimate the ability for the earth to heal itself and the knowledge of Indigenous people), but I am trying to distract myself with making lists. I like making lists. They make me feel infinitely more stable and there is something quite satisfying about making lists and crossing stuff off!

So, here are all of the things I want or am going to do over the course of the summer:

Spend time at the beach which is right down the street from my house!

Yes, I live down the street from the beach, and I never go. I know, I know, this is literally terrible and I am an asshole. But for the last couple of years, we weren't supposed to BE on the beaches because of Covid, and then when we were, they were completely taken over by people who were both tourists AND not wearing masks. My goal is to go to the beach at least once a week.

Go to the California Academy of Sciences at least once.

I only go every couple of years. I used to practically live there when I was younger. That's because it went from being more of a locals place to go on a rainy day to a hipster tourist trap. I want to go at least once this summer.

See the Monterey/ Pacific Grove/ Carmel coast.

I went last year for the first time since 2016. It's a very difficult place to get to if you don't drive (which I do not). Gas is also astronomical right now, so I don't know how likely this one is to happen. I really did very much enjoy my trip last year for my birthday. It was my first vacation in almost three years, and that part of the state is so, so lovely and really has some restorative healing properties. It's a place that is just good for my soul.

Just walk around my damn neighbourhood!

Seriously, it's so beautiful, I need to appreciate it more.

Go for a walk on Higgan's Way.

Maybe I can convince a friend to drive us here and to go on this walk! Sigh.

Explore the quarry and Mori Point.

Again, this is an extension of the beach. I never go here, either, even though it's part of the beach area. This whole area is so lovely. I went recently, and I was reminded of how much I missed it.

Saying goodbye to Disneyland.
