Mondays, Maggie Muses: A visit to Las Gaviotas

Hi, I’m Maggie. My husband (Legh) and I own re-souL.   I like to “muse” about things that inspire me.  Especially on Mondays.

Around this time of year, when I crave the sun and I have grown weary of the rain, I long for a visit to my childhood home in Baja California.  My parents had a small beach house south of Rosarito in a resort community called Las Gaviotas.  That beach house eventually became our all-year-round house and it was a great place to grow up.

In the winter, we would go for long walks and watch the waves crash on the blowhole.  During low tide, we would search for crabs and poke at the sea anemones.  In the summer, we would swim, boogie board and surf for days on end and have bonfires at night.

Years have passed and so have my parents.  While the house no longer belongs to us,  I still get nostalgic and muse about going back to Las Gaviotas for some fun in the sun.
