Back To Reality!

We made it back yesterday afternoon and I made a deal with myself - no blogging till I was unpacked and laundry done! Both missions accomplished. We had a wonderful vacation in Morro Bay, and especially enjoyed the cool weather - mid 60's most days.

The last night we had quite a show. Thunder, lightning and rain. A little noisy in the trailer, but it was really spectacular. It's hard to come back to 106 degrees, but Fall is in sight, right around the corner. Here's a little peek of the view from our campsight. Most of the week we spent lounging (sewing :-)), John golfed and we took some great walks. Tuesday we decided we wanted to go to Hearst Castle and take a tour. Once there we would of had a two hour wait, so we decided to head on up the coast for a drive. It was such a pretty day, we figured we might as well enjoy the sun and catch some rays!! Here we are just hanging out with some of our friends!! I just love these
elephant seals. They have quite the life. On our way back to camp we saw the most amazing thing - a heard of zebra's - I know , I know - where's the picture?? I can just hear Sharon, but by the time we passed by it was too late. We figured they must be from the Hearst Zoo-I'm telling you there were at least 20 - it was quite a sight. John's comment was "how many people get to see a heard of zebra's and a bunch of elephant seals all on the same drive."

Nice to be back home and have all my kids home for dinner tonight. Also, I can't wait to see all the new things in at work. I know those girls have probably changed things around again! :-)

Thanks Darlene! I'll probably start relaxing more when the temperature drops.

Isn't Morro Bay a great place to relax? We can never seem to get enough of the Central Coast *s*
