The Jelbralta rocks in the country hills have been Caroline’s get away place for years. When she and Bobby fight, she hikes here to gather her thoughts, unwind from stress, and find peace.
Sitting on the ground, she leans her back against the enormous rock, and instantly feels stress free. Her mind clears of all the angry “noise” of their latest fight.
Closing her eyes, she feels the stress draining from her mind and finds herself at the ocean where the waves stroke the sandy beach, seagulls call over her head and the sun cocoons her in its warm gentle embrace.
Suddenly, she perks up. “That’s it! I have finally made up my mind.”
Jumping up she heads back to the apartment to tell Bobbie she is leaving for good this time. The Pacific ocean has been calling her for a very long time and it’s high time she go.
