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! :-)

This is outside sewing world! This is a wonderful quilt made by my friend Carol and I'm putting the binding on it. If only I had thought to turn around and take a picture of Tiki Daddy - I'm sure he was looking over my shoulder wondering what I was doing.
So this is a little glimpse of my week at the beach. John did get some good golfing in and maybe next week when we are at Morro Bay I'll tag along and take some pictures of him golfing. Next weekend technical support is coming home (aka my daughter!!) - this picture thing is still kind of slow for me so I'm hoping for some good coaching! Hope everyone has a great week and I will be checking in next Thursday!

I am going to be clueless (I mean pictureless) for a bit. Without my daughter here I'm having a little trouble figuring out the picture part, but I know Donna, Doe and Sharon will give me some tips.
Yesterday was such a wonderful day. First, of course, all of you and your great welcome and then meeting my friend Lani for a day of shopping! Lani and I met in our first quilt class (for both of us) about 25 years ago. Somehow, and we are both fuzzy on this part, we became best buds with the teacher and then I drug my friend Judy in to the mix and we started meeting on a weekly basis at the teachers house. Now we know there were other people in the class, but neither of us can remember how we got from being in class to just the 4 of us -I guess we just voted the others off the island! Well anyway, back to yesterday (boy I'm a rambler!) - at least once a year we meet at a quilt shop in Montrose called Quit n Things, then have Mexican food for lunch and shop at my very most favortie country store ever - Country Classics!!! Love that place --and of course lots of gabbing. Now if I could just show you some pictures -hmmmm! I'm going to be working on that part. Thanks again everyone!

this far. I know very little about computers, but she is teaching me and hopefully before long I'll be off on my own. Now enough about "her" (she said I had to write about myself (gg)! I have been quilting since my kids were very little and I am totally obsessed. Working at a quilt shop has only added to the obsession. Pretty much all my best friends are quilters, what a surprise! Well enough for my first post. Hopefully I did everything right.
