Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur California: Video

29 Dec
The California Coastline, one of my favorite places to refuel and take in nature. I love The Post Ranch Inn, the grounds are breathtaking. Their restaurant Sierra Mar is amazing! I am addicted to Bonny Doon Farm Lavender Soap stocked in the rooms and available online via Post Ranch Inn Mercantile as well. Intoxicating scent! Be sure to eat at Nepenthe and take in the local artist. Enjoy.

Saturday Drive: Coronado, Gaslamp, Pioneer Park, Pringle Street (Photos)

5 Nov

Here’s a bunch of fotos I snapped today. After the rain it was nice to get out and experience a crisp fall day.

I made the mistake of driving into Mission Valley, inspired to breeze through Ikea, not realizing a huge event was underway. So plan B, we headed out to Coronado and Gaslamp for a drive.

Had to pull over and chow on some tasty tacos at Las Quatro Milpas before heading to Coronado. Did you know they are on Facebook? I reviewd LQM on Yelp too, be sure to read the post with all the links here.

We ended the day of errands by walking the dogs through Pioneer Park to Pringle Street. Also one of my favorite modern homes is listed below. From time to time I come across homes I have admired my whole life living here in Mission Hills, this house is one of them. Love the views from that area in back of the park. There was a wedding and I couldn’t resist sharing a snaps or two, so cute! Forgot my camera again so forgive my Blackberry quality. Enjoy

29 Sep

Enjoy these fall twilight photos of the West Lewis St. Shops located in the 1600 block of West Lewis St. in San Diego community of Mission Hills. Valerie and Jimmy from With Love have added so much spirit with over the top decorations. Burlap sacks on the community benches, warm orange glowing lights fill the windows, whimsically wonderful accessories, clothing, and hair products fill the displays at Le Bel Age, Salon Bella and With Love.

Welcome to twilight fall in the Hills decorated for Halloween.

    Today is the Annual Streetcar Line Tour in Mission Hills. As we set out on our daily walk with Nina and Ralphie, our new rescue dogs, (more on that later) I decided to shoot some photos for you to enjoy. I’ve included some favorite homes, views and fall decor. Also see my Canyon Views Ep. 1 where I spend one minute showing you the beauty and tranquility of my community.

    Mission Hills Park Walking Trail Full of Canyon Views

    24 Sep

    Across from Mission Hills Park/Pioneer Park on Washington Place there is a local walking trail right by the Tennis Courts. Its a short 15 minute walk down the lightly maintained trail to the 1800 Block of Titus where you can cross over to the 3400 block of Pringle via a cement walkway. As the seasons change its a good time to see whats blooming in the canyon.

    We walk down and have lunch at Dos Brasas before heading back up. You must try the Carne Asada, and Bean & Cheese Burrito. Whatever that cook does to the marinade is pure love, my man raves about it! I like the more traditional B&C route. Also try the house made carrots and salsas located inside. Great for takeaway calls too.

    On this occasion I kept walking to Bergie’s Pub in Old Town and met my Dad for amazingly addictive hamburgers lunch, while my other half walked back up the trail for an ice cold treat at Mission Hills Liquor. Remember this trail when you have an hour to get up close and experience the canyons of Mission Hills.

    Below are pics I took a few months back when the wild sweet peas were blooming. Forgive the my blackberry camera quality…Enjoy
