Happy Friday! I'm finally sharing my pictures from California. There's been lots of Valentine crafting to share!
My husband and I flew into San Francisco and drove down the coast to Monterey. Oh my, it was just gorgeous.
One of my favorite places to go near Monterey, is Carmel. While I was there, I took a million pictures of the fairy tale cottages there... http://talesfromcarmel.com/2011/04/06/hugh-comstocks-fairytale-cottages-by-the-sea/ I'm obsessed with them. I want to move right in, but I don't have $5 million dollars. It's fun just to look and admire the amazing cuteness.
I drove all over town and peeked in as many houses as I could. Many are just blocks from the ocean. I can't even imagine how lovely that would be.
Gorgeous old trees line the streets.
One night, Bob and I were there at sunset. It was freezing out but a beautiful sight. There were people walking down to the beach from all directions to see it. I was happy to see so many people enjoy it.
When I looked out my window I would see this... needless to say, I sat and looked out and did a lot of knitting, and a lot of nothing too.
I also visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium one morning. I fell in love with the jellyfish rooms.
I also spent about an hour with the penguins. It was mating season and there was romance in the air. Ha! It was quite the sight! Those are just a few highlights. It was wonderful spending 6 days with my favorite person (husband) in my favorite place (California).
