Day 104

And…we’re home. 

I’m both glad and sad to be back home.  Sad, because we have to go back to work/school/reality.  Glad, because I missed Georgia and the good things here. 

I had such a great time on our trip, and I’m so glad Will invited me to join him.  His folks were super generous and kind, and it was great to meet them.

I got a ton of great pictures, and lots of great memories.  My hope is that Will and I have many, many more adventures like that one.  :)

Day 103

I wish this picture could depict the actual enormity of these trees.  Will and I drove down to Santa Cruz to the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. 

Beautiful. 
And amazing.

Afterwards, we headed back to our hotel and met his parents for dinner.  Tonight we had Vietnamese, and it was delicious.  All the food here was great…but I could really use a simple pepperoni pizza or some cheese  dip.  :)

Anyway, we’ve got a ridiculously early flight home…so…till tomorrow.

Day 102

Another great day with Will in California.

Today, we met Will’s parents after breakfast and headed towards San Franscisco.  It was an overcast day, so the photo ops were a little less than desired, but I still had a blast. 

Our first stop was the Golden Gate Bridge.  We got some nice pics and left because it was sprinkling a little bit.

Next stop was In and Out Burger.  I’ve heard of this place before…but didn’t know much about it.  My thoughts…it was good. 

Coit Tower was next, and worth the wait in line.  I got some really cool pics of the city, and it was very neat to be up that high overlooking all of San Franscisco. 

Next stop – Haight Ashbury and Will’s annual trip to Amoeba Music.  Two things: We got a lot of good music, and I could of spent a lot more time shopping and taking pics here.  :)  Very neat place.

After that adventure we headed down the coast to a Peruvian resturant on the beach.  Wow.  What a beautiful place.  Luckily, we arrived early and I was able to wander around for awhile and take tons of pictures. 

I love the sound of water crashing on the shore, the smell of salt water in the air, and all the natural beauty.  I don’t miss Florida much (the place, not the people), but I do miss the beaches.  It was always the place I would go to when I needed to unwind or recenter.  I’m still looking for a place like that in Georgia.  Ah well.

Great day today.  Lots of pictures, laughs, and full bellies.

Day 101

Today was pretty fun.  Will and I got to spend most of today alone, which was nice.  We slept in, got some breakfast, and then headed to a chalk art festival that was really interesting.

After that, we headed over to take a tour of the Winchester house…boy that lady was crazy! :)  Lots of money and insane building ideas has created a “house” that is unimaginable to most normal people.  Interesting though.

After all that, we met Will’s folks at a Greek resturant for dinner.  The food was delicious…and filling.

Day 100

image

Two things today:

1) I can’t believe it’s been 100 days already!!  I am so excited that I’ve continued to take and post a picture everyday for this long.  I was looking back at all the photos just the other day, and it made me so happy to see them. 
Every day has a memory attached and it’s so neat to relive those moments.  Some I shared with those close to me, and others alone.  Either way, it’s a neat journey though memories.

2) I am having a great time in California with Will.  His folks are nice, and we seem to have a lot of fun things planned. 
Today we slept in, visited a quilt museum in San Jose, which was small but interesting, and ate dinner at a very nice steakhouse.  Tomorrow we visit San Franscisco.  :)

Day 99

image

We’re in California!!  :)

We made the trip safe and sound, but tired.  Time zone issues, full bellies, and lack of sleep have taken the best of us, so it’s a low key kinda evening.

I can’t wait to see what the next few days will bring. :)

Day 98

Day 98

I finally had some free time to take pictures today, and it was wonderful.  :)

I had passed by this place where I saw a bunch of beautiful orange and yellow flowers, and made note of it’s location.  Today, when I found myself with said free time, I headed over there to try and get some good pictures.  Success!  Plus, I had a lot of fun doing it.

Will and I leave for California tomorrow.  Super excited!!  More on that to come soon.
