I needed a Vacation

So I just got back from a lovely week in Northern California with the family.  We have been visiting there since I was a child.  It is always lovely to have time to rest and relax.  The weather was perfect, 60's and 70's and lots of sunshine.  Unfortunately the ocean was not perfect by any means.  It was rough and unfishable for most of the week.  We only got out 2 days and only were able to keep 2 fish.  That part was disappointing but everything else was wonderful and made up for it.  We stayed a beautiful rental home and went to the beach and went and saw the Giant Redwoods, we went shopping in Mendocino and Fort Bragg.  I found a few lovely things to buy and overall it was a wonderful and relaxing.

    Glad you had a good time. Time away is the best. I hope your markers come down and that the shots are working. My fingers, toes, lips, eyelashes etc are all crossed for you!

    I will take my cake next weekend if that is okay? But you have to be willing to eat some with me, my friend!
