- “Your diamonds are not in far distant mountains or in yonder seas; they are in your own backyard, if you but dig for them.”
Well my backyard contains some pretty amazing mountains these days, but that’s besides the point 😉 today’s first was obtaining a guest pass to swim outside amongst the redwoods during lunch break at la madrona athletic club off hwy 17.
I found out about this hidden gem and it’s generous free day guest pass while researching online for local swimming pools. The best part of my experience was the staff and members I met there. There was only 1 other body swimming outside in the rain with me, saw her again in the locker room. Turned out she is about to leave for a yoga teacher training in troncones, Mexico at the same center I taught classes at 2 summers ago. What a small world this is when we open our ears and hearts to the present moment!
