That Perfect Moment in Time
Roger's Gardens Newport Beach
Today was one of those time when I had experienced a perfect moment. Thinking back over my life, there were several of these moments. I decided to write them down and share it with others.
- Sept. 2016
Some Perfect Moments...
- Sitting on a lounge chair at Roger's Gardens in Newport Beach, CA. On a nice cool Sept. day, I visited this nursery with my wife. While she shopped, I just sat on one of their loungers and enjoyed the scenery. I put on my favorite music on my iphone and just enjoyed the moment.
- On a vacation to Westerly, RI last year, we drove to Watch Hill near sunset and walk along the beach to a mound near the tip of the inlet. It was the perfect spot to see the sun disappear slowly behind the horizon with the glittering reflection on the water. A perfect moment.
- Overlooking the Hudson river on the cliffs of the Palisades in the Stateline park. This spot is situated between the two States of NY and New Jersey. The spot is also known for hawks flying close by. You can watch their graceful flight circling in the sky. Another perfect moment.
- On a recent visit to the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, CA, I found a spot that overlook the villa with the pacific ocean as the backdrop. It was breathtaking.
- Mohonk Mountain house located in New Paltz, NY has a hiking trail that is magnificent. In one spot along the trail, you can see the beautiful hotel and the small lake. The best time of year is during the fall where the leaves just turned color. It reminds me of Shangri-La as how I envision the mythical place to be.
- The Cliff Walk located in Newport RI. It is one of the best walking trails along the Atlantic coast. You can watch the waves splash off the dark rocks and walk along these fabulous mansions of yesteryear.

These perfect moments are to be cherished. I wish they could be captured in a bottle. I am grateful for being able to visit these places. The best thing is they are mostly free. The exception being the Mohonk Mountain House. It is a private enterprise and there is a charge of $20 for parking.
