random tuesday

Good morning!  My husband has a few days off so we will be heading out on a couple of day trips to enjoy, instead of lament, this sunshiny weather we are being blessed with.


Today we are off to Balboa Island to ride the ferry, take a little walk in the sand and grab an ice cream cone on the Pier.  Doesn't that sound wonderful?


Then it's off to the desert for a couple of days of golf (for him) and down time (for me).  And if we are feeling like one more get away we may head to the mountains on Saturday to ride the chair lift up to the hiking trails and lunch in the clouds.


When I complain about the weather in California I need to remember that most places don't allow you to travel from the ocean, to the desert and then to the mountains after only an hour long car ride.

I am not sure when I will have a minute to check back in this week.  I hope your week is filled with lovely destinations, too.

xo, Patty

  7. Hooray for day trips. I feel the same way about our North State home. The mountains are nearby in three directions. Mt Shasta and Mt Lassen (both volcanoes)are just an hour away. It does take us three hours to get to the ocean though. The distance makes us appreciate it even more when we do make the trip and that trip must be an overnight.... yeah! Enjoy your week. This is a back to work week for us. Take care.
