We’ve started a new adventure game! Make a list of 50 adventures you want to do this year…and then get off your arse and go do them!
The idea came from talking about wanting to explore more of San Luis Obispo County than just the wineries and restaurants…we aren’t going to stop doing those things but we were starting to get a bit of a reputation!
What is an Adventure?
The definition of adventure to us is: something we have either never done before or at least never done TOGETHER before. Our goal was to have a pretty detailed list, as in each adventure was pretty descriptive; rather than just write down “let’s go hiking”, we wrote “let’s take some cheese and crackers and go hike the Harmony Headlands Trail over off of HWY 1”. So, that’s what we did for our first adventure.
This trail is amazing…park in the lot on the West side of HWY 1, just South of Harmony and walk in about 45 minutes to these amazing cliffs above the ocean and just soak it all in. We found a cool little spot to sit and watch the waves crash while we ate some cheese and crackers and simply breathed in the scene (literally).
After hanging out for about an hour and a half we walked a little bit more before heading out. The trail is easy to navigate and not very strenuous at all but it was a great hour and a half walk round trip. We were extremely fortunate to have a beautiful central coast day, 70 degrees and sunny! Annie saw lots of seals and otters, oops, turns out those were seaweed, and Hoot made it a few hours without needing a beer…good times were had by all two of us!
What is the Goal of Adventuring?
The goal here people is to get up and go. There’s plenty of time to sit or lay down when we die, now IS the time for adventure. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to go do new things with the one you love (or like or tolerate…whatever) which is great for conversation and tightening the bond. Adventure brings people together!
There are 52 weeks in the year, so 50 adventures should be quite doable. We will talk about each adventure we go on so you have ideas of other things to go do in SLO County, or use these as ideas to brainstorm for adventures in your own area.
So what are you waiting for…Go Live, Go Adventure!
