Sharks, surfing instructors, a guest post on Everyday Gyaan and Muir Woods

by Vishnu on June 13, 2012

Be careful when you scream 'shark'!

Hi there virtuous people!

Just a quick post to let you know about my guest post at Everyday Gyaan.

Have you falsely yelled “shark” when taking surfing lessons and had beach police show up? NO?

Oh, never mind. Please do read the guest post anyway as it’s about how to remain calm like the ocean floor when life confronts you with killer waves and challenges.

Thank you so much to my new blogger friend, inspirational writer and life coach, Corrine, for the opportunity to guest post on her wonderful blog, Everyday Gyaan.

Attention all tree-lovers and tree-huggers – enchanting Muir Woods photos!

Although I’m in Costa Rica at the moment and soon heading to Nicaragua, I did want to share some photos with you of a spiritual paradise  in Northern California.

Although I grew up in Northern California, I didn’t spend as much time in this place as I should have until recently. Muir Woods is a sanctuary for the ancient redwood trees. These trees are majestic. Did you know they can grow up to 379 feet tall and they are 2000+ years old? The tallest tree at Muir Woods is 252 feet, 1000 years old and 14 feet wide.

These trees flourish in California’s fog belt where the summer fog supplies the necessary moisture for these redwoods to thrive in California. The next time you’re in the San Francisco area, head over 12 miles north of the Golden Gate bridge to Muir Woods and pay homage to this cathedral of redwoods.

The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness” conservationist John Muir.

Some photos from my recent Muir Woods trip:

Hey Vishnu,

Great pictures. I love trees, and have been seen hugging a few, lol. Even taught my kids to do it!

Do you mind if I pinch one of those for my blog? ;)

Keith

PS why Nicaragua? You still running? :-)

Hey Keith, you tree-hugger:) – I’m going to email them to you here in a second. Feel free to use them at your convenience. Going to brush up on my Spanish in Nicaragua and it’s close to Costa Rica. That’s at least the unofficial reason. Otherwise, I can’t comment too much further. lol

Wendy, I’m sure you’ll be there before you know it. It’s one of my favorite places to go to:) The photos do it very little justice.

Beautiful photos, very calming. Reminds me that one day I want to go for a walk in the woods on my own in the middle of the night… Have had opportunities to do so but I always chicken out at the last minute!

Hi Rita – thanks for dropping by and I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. You would be pretty brave to go into the woods in the night! Many a scary movie has started with being in the woods at night. :)
