This weeks Photo Challenge, Favorite Place, asks us to “share an image of your happy place, a secret spot you love, or a faraway location you return to again and again.” For me that is an easy answer. Chiang Mai, Thailand stole my heart in 2009 and 2010; the actual place that I feel is my home away from home is Horizon Village and Resort.
Very close after that is Tweechol Botanical Garden; it backs up to Horizon and includes lots of plants from around the world, a maze/labyrinth, topiary, paddle/pedal boats, a zoo, and a museum, just to name a few.
Then there’s the beach…the sound of the waves, sand beneath the feet and squishing between the toes. Anywhere from Ventura to points North, more favorite places.
Another favorite place is sitting somewhere next to a stream, listening to the water bubbling over the rocks.
Then there’s my sweet boy, his favorite place (when it’s cold) is snuggled up in my bed.
