Hello, faithful readers! Boy, they aren't kidding when they call it "sunny California." After the winter we've had in Chicago, it is such a treat to be here, soaking up all the vitamin D I can before I head back.
Anyway, I don't have long. The group I'm with (Mom and my sisters) are just so "go-go-go." Not a minute to rest! So I've got to get going, but first I wanted to show you just a little bit of what I've done so far.
Just a quick side-trip through Salinas on our way to our first destination to see John Steinbeck's home. That was a five-minute thrill for me.
Here's a different sort of home . . . Hearst Castle. Oh my!
After Hearst Castle we drove Highway 1 up the coast. On one of our stop-offs we found a beach full of hundreds of elephant seals. No kidding. Hundreds!! What an amazing sight.
No, this seal is not dead--just sunning himself.
Everywhere we look there are beautiful flowers in bloom. I thought these were cool--nothing like what we see at home, that's for sure!
Have a happy day, everyone. I know we sure will!
