Friday's Travel

I really haven't traveled too far away from home, but my favorite place to go too and I would go there all the time if my family would let me is too Monetary Calif. I just love this place, I could sit for hours in the sand on the ocean and just listen to the waves, watch people and explore all the little shop's, they have so many Art Galleries, then there's the 17 mile drive with it's beautiful homes that over look the ocean from every angle of the home, I could diffently live there. I love the clean air that so gently hits me, one time we took Johnanthon there for his birthday, he wanted to go Whale Watching, there was storm coming in and the water was very chopping with white cap's and the boat was just a swaying, I was never so scared in all my life, and of course the kid's loved it, then we saw the whales and my fear just left, they are such an amazing creature, so huge in size but so graceful, I remember telling Larry, "Something that is so beautiful and is my favorite place in the whole wide world, is so feared, but that's the beauty of the ocean" when I am sitting on the sand and I look out at the water I think to myself "God can walk on this, and me I'm like a boat, either sink or float". The coffee is even better there, must be the ocean air, we have this little cafe we eat at when we go, it reminds me of an old home transformed to a small sweet feeling cafe, some of the workers remember us when we go, and their egg benedict's are to die for, I always splurge and go for the whole deal, not a half order but a full order, I feel a road trip coming on now, maybe this week end hmmm. I wonder what places I'll travel to today? Happy travel to all

I LOVE the Monterey area and I have my favorite places to go too...I'm actually planning a little road trip there soon. I remember when we were kids, your mom and Gilbert went to Monterey and they brought back those little green pots with all of your names on them, do you remember?
...and when Kristin was in Girl Scouts we took the troop whale watching and it was so fun.
