My favorite places to work

Inspired by my friend Marianne Cantwell’s recent post, “Top 10 Coolest Offices around the World”, I thought I’d share some of my favorite “office spaces”

When I’m home in Cambria, I spend most days working out of my van at Moonstone Beach.  When I need a break, I take Lucy for a walk along the boardwalk. Sometimes we stop and visit with friends, canine and human.

Last summer, I worked from a campground in Acadia National Park and other lovely spots in  Maine.

When I visit my son, Todd, in the  mountains outside of Asheville, I take my laptop out onto the deck of his yurt.

Recently I’ve been spending time near family and friends north of  Cincinnati. This is the view of Landen Lake from the sofa where I work

When I need to escape and plan or write, I go to my favorite spot on earth, Big Sur. I’m off the grid and off-line but this is where I do my best thinking.

A couple of years ago, I spent six months in St. Augustine and worked most afternoons in the shade of the beach gazebo. Break-time revolved around low-tide: dog walking time.

And where ever I work, one or both of my co-workers are close by.

The last two summers I’ve volunteered at 2 different Washington State Parks.

When I’m not doing my park duties like greeting campers and trecking though the forest with kids in the junior ranger program, I work on my laptop in my van.

This coming summer, I’ll be a volunteer docent in a museum and when I’m not talking to tourists, I’ll be writing on my blogs from a spot by this lighthouse on the Puget Sound with a view of Mount Rainier and Mount Baker.
