Summer Reads: Beachcombing at Miramar



Thought I would share another one of my favorite ‘summer reads’…. this time, a non-fiction masterpiece, Beachcombing at Miramar by Richard Bode.

I bought this book several years ago and after reading it once, proceeded to buy numerous copies to give away ( and immediately! ) as gifts, I was that impressed. One friend carried this book around in her purse for weeks. When she needed a ‘stress break’ she would pull it out to enjoy a peaceful page or two. Another friend stayed up all night, not able to put the book down until the last page was enjoyed. I can relate, it really is  that good.

This (for me) was a life-changing book and one that touched me deeply.  The story of Richard Bode’s move from the rat race to a peaceful and contemplative life on a California beach at Miramar. A dream that for most people remains just that. Bode went for it, gave up a high-paying job, left behind the life he had always known (including a marriage that wasn’t working any more) to find himself and to live out his dream of a life filled with meaningful and one- of- a -kind days.

Beautifully written, this is a book you will never forget.A rare glimpse and chance to share an extraordinary journey along with Richard Bode. Another one I highly recommend to add to your summer reading list. In case you haven’t read it already.

  3. None that I can really think of, but I did just check Wicked out of the library. Apparently a lot of people are reading that because I was 81 in line when I reserved it.
