Any kind of travel allows for the landscape you know to slowly fade into the distance, while something else comes into view. The residue of your daily life slowly melts away as you walk or sail or glide towards whatever is waiting for you.
When we got married, my husband and I decided we would go to the Maldives for our 10-year anniversary. Surely, in 10 years we could afford such adventure and extravagance. Fast forward 11 years and we have three kids, another on the way, and the many financial and social burdens of modern life. The Maldives still sit there on the horizon and that’s ok. It’s always nice to have a proverbial carrot to chase.
Also, this: proximity still offers adventure.
We pack the kids and the boards, the many hotdog buns and stuffed animals, onto my parents’ boat and follow swells in the summer.
A few fantastic sips of cold beer, sliding across the water on melted wax, the pale and shiny fish below'; sometimes that’s all it takes to feel far away.

This winter was hard. Was it for you? Did you get good waves? Did you have big, life-shifting moments? Even if you were in Southern California it was really wintery. The weight of the cold months weighed on me like the snow itself. The deep, heavy puddles didn’t empty until just recently.
