I took this photo up in the Salinas mountains during the 4th of July holidays, back in 2014. We enjoyed the perfect hospitality of our hosts spending a fabulous week up there, dipping down to the coast into the Monterey area every other day with my daughter. The honeysuckles on their property were vibrant; still as delicious as when I was a kid!
I trust you’ll enjoy the views I am sharing here with you!
We enjoyed refreshments and lots of delicious produce, naturally!
Breathtaking scenes that stopped us in our tracks.
Friendly faces to behold!
And amazing natural beauty along the way!
While I missed sharing LBM’s adventures with all of you I will admit, once again, the time spent away from the computer was worth it. A weekend in so Cal (no I’m not including the location of Monterey in my so Cal geography) and some family members not seen in a while, made for a very special weekend.
In celebration, my eldest son returned home safely -once again- from his tour of duty in Iraq (previously having served in other Middle Eastern lands as well), to the relief of his many family members thus making this weekend the best!
To add to the beauty of it all, LBM celebrated his 82nd birthday this past Friday!
I hope all of you had a perfect Spring Break/Easter holiday too.
