Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day. There was a Bee Hazard caution sign on the road but we didn't even get the change to see any. Maybe it's because we


I heard that when someone in the family die, that person will tend to reincarnate within the family. I have a limited knowledge about reincarnation but it doesn't matter if I believe or not on it but here is my story.
My husband and I have been married for 13 years before I got pregnant. Once we found out that we are going to have a boy, we thought of a simple name Alan. We got it from my husband little brother, Geoffrey Alan Sims who was born on September 12th and only live for a very short time.
Approximately 49 years later after Geoffrey died,  it was warm and sunny that day. My husband and I went for a walk and when we got home I took a shower and my water broke while I was in the shower. I wasn't due for 6 more weeks. My husband took me to the hospital and I had no choice but to have a C-Section,  water broke and the baby was breach. The doctors couldn't find any reasons why it's too early. Anyway, my baby was born preemie but he was healthy.
The thing was, I didn't know until after I gave birth that my husband little brother was born on the same date September 12th.  What a coincidence, isn't it? Have the same name and born on the same date. I don't know if Reincarnation is real or not but all I know is, I'm happy! This boy is a such wonderful blessing to me and to my family. I couldn't ask for more!

Here is an interesting video In Another Life, Reincarnation In America about research and people who claimed to have reincarnated.

  1. i don't believe in it myself, but i love the story and coincidence! what a lovely reminder and joy he must be!
    i also liked your periwinkle snails - never knew the name, cute!
    happy a to z-ing!

  2. (Not sure my other comment worked) ... But what I wrote was how, even if we can't explain reincarnation, it is still a lovely story and a lovely idea to think that a family member is still with us in one form or another. Hope you're enjoying the A to Z Challenge.

  3. whoooo seems to be my area of interest.And to read such an incident happening to ourself is quiet a proof to that :)
    Congrats for surviving the challenge.

    1. There are so much information online about reincarnation, I got overwhelmed and didn't know which way to go. I would have like to post about it but..
