Love your enthusiasm for life! It's contagious and makes me feel all happy this morning. Plus, I get to really MOVE to the coast (ocean, trails, mountains, pine forests) and your pics are reminding me that I'm so lucky too! We take our first load of the move over tomorrow!

No bears where we are... Well, maybe there are. Sure are bobcats and coyotes.

Lions, tigers and bears. Oh my!
