Peaceful Place

When staying at the Back Bay Inn you may find some peace and quiet. Just looking at this picture brings me back to that peaceful place.

Conservatory In Black & White

On our recent road trip, Chris and I went to Minnesota to have my mother’s ashes laid to rest with her parents.  Something long overdue since she had passed away back in 2008.  

The day before the ceremony at Fort Snelling, we had a few hours and went to the Como Park Zoo & Conservatory.  It was a beautiful day and we had some time to relax.

As we walked around the gardens and zoo, I wondered did my mother or grandparent come here.  It was not too far from the home they lived in in St Paul, MN.  

Pismo Beach

Boy, oh boy, I’d love to be there on a hot summer day like today.

This picture was taken back in 2011, on our first trip up the coast headed to Back Bay Inn in Los Osos. This is Pismo Beach. Doesn’t the water look cool and refreshing?

Roses in Springtime

Shortly before we moved from California in 2014, my husband Chris took me to the Huntington Library. I had never been there, but he had some good memories going there when he was young.

The gardens at the Huntington Library were truly among the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, especially the roses.

Back Bay View

This picture was taken at one of my favorite places, Back Bay Inn in Los Osos, CA.  It’s one of the many beautiful views from this hidden gem of a hotel.  When you check in, you can feel your stress melting away.

Old Rusty Car

Last December, we went on a road trip into states I had never been to. This rusty old car was by the roadside in Arkansas. Love the colors and the home behind it…kind of captures some of the sights we saw along the way.
