There are scenes in movies that are so unbelievably beautiful that they seem as though they've been dreamed up. Or, in the very least, shot in Europe. There is one particular scene in Pride & Prejudice when Keira Knightley is standing at the edge of a cliff and it is so unbelievably breathtaking and beautiful that you want to be transported there right away, thankyouverymuch.
Well, we were walking along the Point Reyes National Seaside — which was a sight to behold with views of the staggeringly ginormous Pacific and miles and miles of catgrass — when we turned a bend and happened upon a landscape which bore a very, very close resemblance to the landscape of that scene I often dream about. My heart warmed and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was nothing short of magic, friends.
There are many beautiful things in this world. So many, in fact, that it would be utterly impossible to list all of them. But, if I had to create a list of some of the most beautifully majestic places I've visited, this definitely would have been one of them.
Quiet and serene, I felt like we were in a different place and time. I wondered what it would be like to live out there, so secluded and isolated. I'm sure it would be lonely, but in a peaceful and lovely sort of way. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Point Reyes, I think you be silly to miss its National Seaside. xo, R.
