I was so amazed when I woke up this morning, I couldn't get back to sleep knowing what beautiful pictures might be slipping through my fingers at this time of morning. It was about 6:45 a.m. (maybe even 7) and the sun was hitting the van so perfect that I could not resist the temptation to get up and get some awesome pics! I got out of the van and headed down...down the slippery rocks. I am not too much for preparation when pictures are at risk! I had on my 'jammers and a pair of shoes I call my California's...I wasn't planning on a full-on hike through scratchy prickly bushes. I headed down the rocks thinking they were going to be easy to get down, then I remembered I'm a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to heights and falling.

I was afraid to sit down anywhere because there are little nooks and crannies everywhere and I just knew as soon as I sat down there was going to be something waiting down there for me, to bite me on the tooshie!

I sat down for a short second and jumped down into the bushes.... I'm so brave! haha It was so neat though once I got down to the bottom to look up at Joon Van in all of her morning glory.

The sun was in the most perfect spot and all I could do was snap away. I kept moving back further and further to get better views and vantage points, our new spot rocks... a little bit of a pun there. As I started thinking about how I was going to get back to the top it dawned on me I really had nowhere to go. There are just these crazy spiky tree bushes everywhere, I did not wear the right thing for this at all, and I have nowhere to go but up...oops! I trekked my way around and around, always trying to keep sight of the van...

I am sooooo crazy scared about getting lost out here it's ridiculous. I finally found a little path and found my way out, woo hoo. I just had to walk back about 5 minutes to the van but I came out at a place that I actually recognized...weird! So here are some pics from my glorious shoot or so I think.

After I found my way back to camp, I cleaned the outside of the windows, hopped in the van, cleaned the inside of the windows from snot face (Savannah) and took a few pics of what it looks like from where I lay and what I get to wake up to. Here are some of those...

The rest of the day I messed around and fancied up The Lulu Lounge a little bit, I had to move it all together because it was in a spot where we needed space to be able to maneuver Joon Van in and out of the new spot. I tried tuning Claramae a bit, got really frustrated so what better thing to do....I took some pictures. At least if I can't play it right now I'll have plenty of pictures of what she looks like! haha

I also found my Angel cards so I did a couple of readings. I don't care what anybody says when I need a little bit of guidance or just some reassurance I lay out my cards and they always seem to be spot on. I've done them for many people and they always have the same response as I do, they love them and want to do them again and again.

It was a pretty good day, I have to say. One of these days I'll get this guitar tuned so I can actually learn to do something...other than (try to) tune it! ha
Hope ya'll had a peaceful joyous day. Catch ya on the flip side.
