On May 18th and 19th, Jim and I took some time and took off for the coast. Living in the foothills is really lovely. We have mild weather and an early spring. But, getting away, just the two of us, is also very nice. After spending a romantic night at the Carmel Resort Inn (a darling property with comfy cabins) Jim took me to lunch at the famous "Alice's Restaurant." When we finished lunch we drove along Skyline Drive then came home. Here's a picture I took of Skyline to share.

This time Jim and I took off in the sports car to take some pictures and relax. I've been working on cards to support the principals in the book (Walk In Your Own Footsteps www.wiyof.com) and wanted just a couple of new ones to round things out. That was the perfect excuse to take off for a weekend. We had a nice dinner on the Warf in Monterey, then took some great photos. I found a woman taking photos of her family so I handed off the "good" camera for this shot.

Today Jim and I spent a few hours leisurely making our way around Bradshaw Ranch golf course. It was about 80 degrees and slightly breezy. We had a wonderful day! When I resist the urge to keep track of my strokes, I just LOVE the game of golf!!!

We started our trip today at South Lake Tahoe. The cool thing is we were together, which is always fun. And... I spotted a bald eagle above the lake and that was awsome. We also checked out a nice place to camp and had a great lunch. Here's a pic taken from an overlook by Emerald Bay.
The down side was the awful traffic! Ugh! We just sat for long periods of time in line with other cars just to get around the lake.
Then we went to down 89 toward 88 and stopped at Silver Lake! That was just a beautiful, much cooler, and fewer people. Here's a pic of Jim by Silver Lake. Check it out if you haven't. It's just very nice and so are the people at the little resort at the south end of the lake.
