Lcsmcat @Graywacke @Jaimelire Isn‘t it lovely! It‘s too windy to read outside much, unless I‘m on my Kindle, but there are windows for when we‘re stuck inside. 4mo

#QuotsyJuly19 Day 21: #Beach photo taken just this morning as family here in the US brought us for an overnight trip at South Lake Tahoe directly right after a 3 day outdoorsy camping at Coloma Resort here in California. The photo above apparently is already in the Nevada #Beach Campground area. Needless to say, it was a gorgeous day. Now back home in Antioch after a 3 hour drive from this beautiful place.

My local library, PBS station, and Rachel Carson were my inspirations to dream big and pursue my love of marine and environmental sciences.
