There’s waiting and then there’s waiting. With only one car on our trip, when Ted goes golfing I have to decide - do I want it to go off and do something on my own, or just hang out at the coach.

With a 4+ hour block of time I took the car, then came back to the Bayonet and Blackhorse Golf  where he was playing.

It’s in the town of Seaside, not far from Monterey and the Monterey Peninsula. Gorgeous, warm, quiet, and look who appeared as I was finishing up!

Santa Barbara Plein AIr

 Southern California weather makes for a plein air session without some of the usual hassles we find in the Northeast - bugs, wind, too hot or too cold. 
Maybe you who live here don’t agree but it was heaven to me.
I went over to the Santa Barbara Mission but was more interested in this house across the street. I couldn’t resist that tile roof.
In my happy place for a couple of hours!

What’s a quilt trail anyway?

When we were in Tillamook, Oregon I loved these large square format paintings that were on the side of buildings in town. Tillamook County Quilt Trail and learn more. Never knew there was such a thing as a quilt trail but why not? I love seeing and learning about new things, especially when they’re about artistic expression as it relates to place.
