We’ve been on an adventurous streak lately…which is just the way we like it! This time we headed out with a picnic and thoughts of sitting lakeside at Lake Nacimiento…sounds like paradise eh? Well, it was! The drive out there this time of year is awesome because the hills are green and things are coming to life. After arriving at the Public Marina, we walked around for a while to “reacquaint” ourselves with the area.
What’s Lake Nacimiento All About?
Annie used to spend a fair amount of time out there when her family had a lake house and I (Hoot) actually never really spent time there so it was all new, which is all good in my book. We investigated some different areas on foot and watched some boats slip into the water and take off and then decided to back the Tacoma up to the lake and drop the tailgate.
Annie grabbed a few beers from the general store for me (since she’s with child) and we simply sat and absorbed the scene. It was a lot of fun to watch the people go by and the boats go in and out, as if you hadn’t already noticed Annie and I love the water…give us an ocean, a lake, or a river any day of the week and we’ll be content.
We enjoyed the picnic that Annie hooked us up with and we sat in the sun for a good three to four hours before packing up and heading home. Sometimes in life you just have to be, and this day was all about being a “human being” rather than a “human doing” (I saw this little saying on Facebook or Google Plus recently).
This is the whole reason we started this 50 Adventures in 2012…we did it to push ourselves to get out there and try new things but to also reconnect with life and living. We all get caught up in doing things that feel like obligation and you know what? We need to learn to turn our backs on that sometimes in order to preserve our sanity and be in tune with ourselves and those around us.
Adventures don’t have to cost a bunch of money, this one didn’t cost over $30 for the picnic we made at home, gasoline, the beer I bought, and the day pass into the lake area. Get out there and grab life before it passes you by! Cheers!
