this is what happens when you miss your flight

you wake up to a great view of Loma Linda and its blanket of smog...


you visit the TOMS shoes headquarter in Santa Monica...wearing your TOMS of course...


you visit the Getty Art Museum with Kaitlin...


and are inspired by photographers who preach the social gospel through stunning images...


you eat pesto with friends...


you visit the thursday farmers market...to people watch and buy some fruit...


you stay at a house that is part storybook/part fulfills all my mother's dreams...


you visit a childhood friend who is going to be a doctor in the very near future...


and who gives you a tour of the "last chance ranch"...


you run into the weavers at church...jessica fresh from Egypt...jeremy fresh from South America...


you spend sabbath at the beach with friends of the old and new variety...


you also spend sunday at the beach with a couple of world travelers...


you attempt to surf for the first time in the frigid pacific waters...these are Brad's legs...a much better surfer than i...


you spend time with deep thinkers and awesome individuals...


and then you have to say goodbye...

my missed flight was truly a blessing. it distracted me for awhile. i didn't have to go home right away after camp...i got to enjoy friends a little bit longer before going home to start growing up and finding a job.

so here is to a new kind of adventure...a one that has to be searched after...and planned.

Good luck, Jessi. Here's to growing up. Hurts a little, unfortunately. (Sometimes a lot.) I'm glad you had fun.

You are good at life Jessi Turner. There's no doubt in my mind that you're going to DO things. Awesome things.

Wow Jessi! Great blog. Thanks for taking me on your adventure! I had a similar story happen to me when I missed a flight before. God is truly amazing and always looks out for us!
