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 Evening Walk At Presidio Park

11 Dec

We took the bogs on a walk to the park last Saturday. They love the sights and sounds of the serene trails. This time we took the center paved walkway along the backside of the Serra Museum which takes you along the back around to the front for a great sunset view. As you can see from the foto some professional fotogs were also enjoying the sunset. Have a great rest of your weekend. 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

At the end of the exhibit is Ellamarie and Jackson Wooley’s huge “Reflective Sun” wall sculpture, which once graced the San Diego Civic Theatre. There’s a sad tale connected to its eventual removal but that does not diminish its brilliance, capping an exhibit worthy of multiple visits.
