This is a place that I'm not sure I will be able to visit again in the future but I'm so glad I had the opportunity to go at least once. I had always wanted to go glamping and I can say that I can't imagine any other way to do it for the first time! I have literally talked about it so much that other people have gone immediately after me telling them about it and guess what? They also absolutely loved it as well!
This place has a special spot in my heart because it was during a time when I needed a hard reset. I was burned out and having a hard time finding "ME" time let alone social time for others. I felt like I was burning the candle at both ends and it was wearing me down. So I did what I normally do when I need to balance things out, I heading to the woods. I think what I remember most was how absolutely AMAZING it felt to sleep in the woods to the sound of nature, in the most comfortable heated bed you could think of. The combination of heat from the bed, the crispness of the cool early spring air, and the sound of absolute silence literally shifted me to a place I needed to be, in order to handle what was coming in the months ahead.
At times I feel like I can channel that moment by opening my window at night and getting deep under my weighted blanket. There is a familiarity of that moment that centers me all over again. It is the moment that I no longer thought of dreary, cold days as something negative, but now could see comfort in it because I found that in the forests of Mendocino. I am forever grateful for this moment. Until next time beautiful people. FLL
