#MomentsOfJoy

Although I like the song I am sharing today, it is not one of my favorites. But the reason I am posting it is that it reminds me of the many wonderful times I was allowed to spend in southern California. I haven’t been there for so long and miss it a lot. Due to the current Corona problems, I have no idea when I can go there again.

#MomentsOfJoy

Happy Wednesday, everybody! Today, I simply want to share one of my favorite spots of this planet. It is a viewpoint at Crescent Bay Point Park, Laguna Beach, with a spectacular view over the Pacific Ocean with its breathtaking wideness. Usually, the rock is crowded with sea lions and pelicans. And if you are a little lucky, you can spot dolphins or even wales. It is a stunning place at any time of the day. It is always my first trip when I am back in SoCal. Enjoy the view 😎

“Imagine Love” and guitar sounds in Santa Monica

Yesterday, Colin of MeAndRay shared a song of Scott Jacobs whom he saw performing live as a street entertainer. Colin liked the voice and the song and bought a CD. In our following discussion, I mentioned that I experienced the same twice in Southern California. Colin asked me to share songs of those artists too.

Friday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Unfortunately, so far we had more floodings in our nearer and greater surroundings than summer atmosphere. But we still have our music which chases the clouds away and makes us dance and sing. One of those songs is definitely the one I am sharing for this Friday. Have a happy one! Read more ›

Balboa Peninsula

On the day of Halloween we went to Balboa Peninsula. This beautiful place lies along a wide beach and is the extension of the Newport Beach beach. At the end of the beach of Balboa Peninsula you have a view to Corona del Mar and also to the harbor of Balboa Island. I was often sitting at a view-point at Corona del Mar looking towards Balboa Peninsula and always wondered how it might be over there.

We had a beautiful morning – only few people around.

After that we drove up to Hacienda Heights. It has become a tradition to go to this Buddhist temple when I am in So Cal. I love that temple. Unfortunately it is not allowed to take pictures in the big temple house. It is beautiful. There is such a special atmosphere of peace and relaxation. Since I took pictures all the other times I did not take too much this time. Therefore I share some photos with you from former visits.

Trip to Oceanside CA

It has been a while since I posted my last impressions of my days in California after the I CAN DO IT convention and my book signing. Btw., you would not believe what is happening at the moment in my life. On Sunday I gave my last workshop for this year and it was awesome. I am very excited about scheduling my workshops for next year. Yesterday I got a call from my publisher and perhaps I get the chance to give workshops in a big business hotel in our capital beginning next year. It is still in discussion but things are in motion like the offer for another marketing campaign with Kimberly Rinaldi. I met her at the book signing in Pasadena and she just got back to me. What a year!!!

Naples CA

You all know what Venice (Italy) is about and probably most of you know that Venice Beach has its name right because of the canals which remind to Venice. But have you ever been to or heard of Naples? The village is located next to Long Beach in Alamitos Bay. It was built on three islands.

Forget Venice, forget Venice Beach! Naples is the most beautiful, enchanting, and romantic place at a canal system. It is also a lot bigger than Venice Beach. Most of the houses are more kind of mansions, with beautiful designed front yards.

When we arrived in Naples it was almost sunset and not a lot of people were outside. The romantic aspect was even raised when a gondola came by. I definitely have to come back and spend a little more time at this inspiring place. And perhaps take a gondola ride. Oh, and very important: It smelled well and is super clean wherever we walked!

Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1)

When we drove down from Ventura all the way south we decided to go over the PCH since we’ve never experienced the scenery above Malibu. It was the most beautiful ride!

Ventura CA

Last week on Tuesday we left Santa Barbara. On our way down to Costa Mesa, we stopped at Ventura beach and harbor. On one side of a long headland, you find a beautiful beach, on the other side there is the harbor with shops and restaurants. Very nice place!
