Frolicking in Flowers and Meditating in Gardens

This past Saturday, my girlfriend and I traveled up to Carlsbad and Encinatas to spend one of my last Saturdays in Southern California, visiting some of the most beautiful hidden gems along the SoCal coastline.  It was one of those much-needed peaceful days that remind you of how lucky you are to be on this Earth, as well as fortunate enough to live in a place that offers so much beauty.

Flower Fields

Our first stop was the Flower Fields in Carlsbad.  If you’re in the area, I highly suggest you go.  The acres of beautiful flowers in vibrant colors, overlooking the Pacific Ocean were just amazing.  The pictures truly speak for themselves.

Meditation Garden

Our second stop was to meditate in a place that is designed to provide a zen experience in an outdoor setting.  Overlooking Swami’s, the Self Realization Meditation Gardens offer a variety of areas to meditate in.  Meditating there was a much more amazing experience than being in my own home, especially with this uninterrupted view. 🙂
