We decided to take a quick weekend vacay to Carmel - without the kiddos! Grandma and Aunt Laura split up wrangling our shortlings so we could enjoy our first night away in over 4 years.
|Lunch over looking Monterey Bay.|
|There is something about the beach and the ocean that is so appealing to all the senses. Simply gorgeous.|
|Do you think he was contemplating life's mysteries?|
|Nah. He was hunting. Look what he found.|
|The room. The entire West side of the room was glass with a slider going onto a private patio. We left the door open to let in the cool ocean breeze, but the fire kept the room nice and warm.|
|The view from our room.|
|We went for a hike at Point Lobos.|
|Seals (or sea lions or whatever ones they were; who can tell the difference anyways) sunbathing.|
|Sweep the leg! Put him in a body bag Johnny!|
|Fear doesn't exist in this dojo.|
But we got over that pretty quickly and had a great time. We stayed up late and laughed hard and slept in (well I did. Allen got up at 6 and read the paper and such things.) and just enjoyed being Allen and Traci for a while.
It felt really good to have "us" back for a couple of days.
