A Perfect Day

Pebble is a piece of sacred ground. They say it’s the greatest meeting of land and water in the world. This course was heaven designed—just the way it fits on the land.”

Johnny Miller, 2-Time Major Champion

Mr. Twitchy and I have spent the last 3 days at Pebble Beach, which, for those of you not familiar with it, is one of the best golf destinations in the United States. Mr. T played two different courses, Spyglass and Pebble Beach. I opted out, deciding that total humiliation on the golf course is not in my best interest. Yesterday, I walked part of Pebble Beach with him as he played golf because I don’t think there is a prettier walk in the park anywhere in the world. The weather was glorious and the scenery spectacular.

So rather than bore you with some depressing Parkinson’s stuff, I thought it would be more fun to share some photos from Pebble Beach.

“If I had only one more round to play, I would choose to play it at Pebble Beach. I’ve loved this course from the first time I saw it. It’s possibly the best in the world.”

Jack Nicklaus, 18-Time Major Champion

After lunch we headed to Point Lobos State Natural Reserve in Carmel. It has a reputation for being the most beautiful state park in California and it did not disappoint.

Something orange growing on the trees, Mr. Twitchy, Cypress Trees, Bird Rock, Purple Sea Urchins in a tide pool, Pelicans everywhere

Just looking at the photos makes me smile, which of course causes a dopamine rush. So enjoy the photos, take a deep breath, relax………..and smile.

A new book for you

I just finished reading the entertaining Not Just Sunglasses and Autographs by Tommy Burke. Burke worked in Hollywood for over 30 years before being diagnosed with first Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and then Parkinson’s Disease. In the first half of the book, he gives a first hand look at Hollywood as an insider who doesn’t always follow the rules. He then takes us through his cancer diagnosis and night-time chemo treatments (following a full day of work) and his Parkinson’s diagnosis. His inspirational style is infectious as is his zest for life. His mantra throughout the book is “NEVER GIVE UP”, whether on the set, fighting cancer or Parkinson’s. I am looking forward to his next book and more about his journey with Parkinson’s.
