Home Again

This is my lovely family, enjoying the sunset at Point Pinos, near Monterey, CA. The wind was cold and the jackets were back at the hotel, so we made due with towels.
We arrived home last night from six days in California and over 2000 miles in the car. After a rather rough start--think car sickness, migraine, trying to sleep in the car--we had a wonderful time in Monterey. The west coast was suffering through a heat wave, which made the weather perfect at the beach. We played in the waves, went to the boardwalk in Santa Cruz, visited the Aquarium and enjoyed each other's company without all the distractions and to do lists of home. For some reason, the camera always seemed to be back at the hotel or in the car. I just can't seem to remember everything.
Now it is back to the real world, and hopefully I will have time to create soon. Maybe when I tackle the mountain in the laundry room and restock the refrigerator.

Beautiful family photo. Glad you had the camera for this pic. Isn't Monterey beautiful? My family and I just returned from a trip there for Memorial Day weekend. However, it was cold and overcast (even rained once!) while we were there.
