So glad you got to explore my neck of the woods(I live in Santa Maria). It is so beautiful this time of year and I love to drive up the coast to Cambria too. Even though I travel a lot I always like coming home to the beautiful rolling hills of the Central Coast.

Your photos make me happy. The monarch on the pink-blossomed tree against the blue sky was pure joy. My father would have been 85 today. I think of him every day.

Leafy green leaves, I LOVE leafy green leaves. Thanks for the virtual vacation, I sure needed someone to have a good time this weekend, and it wasn’t going to be me. My sewing machine broke in the midst of a project, so I handstiched the rest. Then, after puncturing my finger with the needle for the 12th time, I indulged my impulsive shopping side and purchased a brother lb-6800 project runway special! Yahoo….I am now shopping like a fiend on Fabric.com. I have a van Akker pattern and the material, all totaling $70. Watch out world, I am going to be the next project runway designer.

Ahhhh love poems to leafy greens indeed…I have had to swap green for blue, living by the sea and not the countryside now

Geez, you shoulda stayed through tomorrow. Sugared up minkeys are exhausting. I’m wondering what the high schoolers are going to be like for me tomorrow? In a coma, perhaps?

Did you try the smoked salmon tacos at the smokehouse in your pics??? Make a note! They are legendary… it is our favorite place to stop when we are in this sleepy little beach town. Just thinking about them makes me want to get up, get in the car and drive 20 minutes north to have them for lunch! Yum.

belated postcard reads a little bit like this. Very pleased your mini break was much enjoyed. The pics and peeks all fab, all those little notes and road trip commentary all appreciated…wishing I would have tagged along but feeling content whilst peeking from over your shoulder. I swear you can make a walk to any ordinary corner, anywhere, feel like a getaway across the miles…..really!!!! Happy you had such a sweet and relaxing but all too brief respite. Toodles.
PS ME thinks you will need extra strong powers over those much hyped up chimps not being able to sit still one minute longer than they have to in anticipation for Halloween festivities, so I think your getaway timing couldn’t have been planned any better. Just imagine the sand between your toes and the sound of the surf lapping up around you as you keep em in line. 😉

If I’d been staring at the road sign, I would have gone left. OK, I would have come home but wanted to go left…

How slowly the weekend comes, anticipated and longed for. Once arrived times races forward at breakneck speed like old flicks in black and white. The road home. Quiet .. calm before the storm of little monkey brains waiting to hear of your adventures. So good to get away. Donna

Ahhh…your pictures did not disappoint. All I have to offer is a harried trip to Vons and Target. So, I shall hold these images in my mind to help me in the last hours of the weekend and especially through tomorrow with 12 year olds in costumes – herding them into responding to poetry!

I am so glad you had a get away weekend. I like my mini stay-cation’s within a few hours travel. The aloneness is beneficial once in a blue moon! It is almost time again. Me, Ipod, journal and life.
