On the Creek Trail

On my waterfall! What great spot! A fabulous secret gem indeed. Somewhere in Kentucky. My husband and I have been traveling back and forth to Kentucky from California for almost two years now. We travel to see our family members living here. Being so separated (in distance) from 2 of our grandkids is hard to bare, but our every 8-12 week visits have made things a bit more barely that’s for sure. I’m so thankful we have been able to keep up this visiting schedule. Recently our daughter shared this most magnificent spot close to her home. Awe, a bit of mother nature’s glory at it’s best!

Joshua Tree Adventuring…

What a thrill to finally be here. Joshua Tree has been on my bucket list for far too long. This was our first stop, I suppose you can tell I’m very excited. Oh my Joshua Tree, a fine specimen indeed. A pano here for your enjoyment. Folks, if you ever get a chance to visit this gorgeous National Park, don’t pass it up. It is truly worth the stop. Of course the weather must always be taken into account and one must plan well. Amazing rock formations, molten lava that rose long ago. The beauty is endless… A walk and wine session is a must. Here’s a quick link to this amazing National Park, by now I’m thinking 🤔 you’re thinking… you must go some time in your life. https://www.nps.gov/jotr/index.htm Research research research, I can’t express enough folks do your research on what to bring, when to go, etc… the desert can be brutal, you must take care and be prepared. Our little Airbnb the ‘Sunrise Cove’ was just perfect.

Torrey Pines, Oh My 

When in San Diego, Torrey Pines is one of my absolute favorite places to visit. The area offers such fantastic views of the sea. One can get in a really good workout here as well.  Parking can be found at the base of the reserve. The walk up the road to the trails is a good uphill trek and will definitely get you warmed up for the trails. On this particular visit my husband and I choose to explore the Guy Fleming Trail, which is the first trail you come to.  Torreyana Pine  A gorgeous sandstone formation  On the Guy Fleming Trail  Nice August day by the sea Love this view from the trail It was good to be back.  A pano for you Oh So Cal you do remain my fav! 💙 Torrey Pines State Beach, what a delight.
