Lovely May trip to the coast

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.

Romantic Weekend in Monterey

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 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.
While it was cool, the sky remained pretty clear so I got some good shots. :) We stayed in a darling place in Carmel but I can't recommend it because the heater was stuck at 80 degrees and the toilet would only flush two tissues at a time! It pretty much rained like crazy on Sunday, so we visited a favorite place in Santa Cruz then headed home. We stopped at Crepe Danielle in Saratoga and had a WONDERFUL meal. I wanted good coffee and a nice place to hang out before we headed home and I got it! The food was so good that we had a little debate over who's crepe was tastier!

August trip to So Cal

Well, I'm finally getting around to posting some pics from our summer trips last year. Once I'm all caught up, I'll be able to go forward. This pic was taken by some vacationing teenagers in Dana Point, CA. We were down visiting my dad in Rancho Santa Magarita, CA. It was a warm day and we met some cool people.

Golfing In Beautiful Rancho Cordova!

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!!!

While we were at Puck's we also hung out with her people, Jim and Kathie. Jim and Jim went golfing twice and Kathie and I worked on computer as well as art stuff! Pretty fun weekend!

Our trip to Reno this weekend :)

Jim and I went to Reno this last weekend to hang out at Puck's house. Here she is relaxing in one of her favorite spots.

A wonderful trip among the lakes of the Sierras

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.
