Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend.
Most human beings spend all our time as human doings. Just being somewhere without the compelling need to do something is not easy. Every so often a place or a special insight triggers a refreshing notion of “stop and just enjoy!”
One of my special places is the Lafayette Bakery in Carmel. As you enter you are greeted by a message that makes me smile and turn off my phone….
Another “place apart from others” is Big Sur. Only miles south of Carmel, yet light years from the normal day to day doings. Nature has a way of saying, “no wifi here, enjoy!”
Runners in the Big Sur International Marathon are ready to run this Sunday! Start time begins 6:45 AM at the Big Sur Station and finishes at Rio Road at Highway One. There will be 13 aid stations along the course stocked with Gatorade and water, and fruit will be offered at all stations starting at mile 10.4. In addition to the Marathon, there will be five other races during the day- perfect for all athletic types.
A tradition for 29 years, the first Big Sur Marathon had 1,800 runners. Popularity and numbers running have exploded, with this year’s Marathon now sold out.
The Heinrich Team wishes all runners the best of luck!
Here’s a video Carole & I took of the Marathon course:
The Community Park is the heart of the Carmel Valley Village. This is where we live and play, from walks with our dog Puddin, to the fun and celebrations at Fiesta Time. When you visit the Village, stop and enjoy the open spaces and wonderful views.
Located in the beautiful Carmel Valley, Earth Bound Farm is a world leader in the organic farming movement. On Saturday they held their annual Bug Walk introducing to kids how the good bugs help organic farmers grow their produce. It is a family outing that is fun for all, especially for the kids and the “good bugs”.
