Our Lovely Vacation...
All I can say is vacationing with friends is the way to go!
We went out to the coast and spent a week with our dear friends.
And let me tell you we all had a ball!
We found our accommodations in their lovely home to be quite cozy!
But the laughs and fellowship were the best!
Lydias home is shabby chic in decor and design.
It really is very nice and filled of course in her dining area
And she and I enjoyed using some of her very favorites to sip tea and chat!
She did serve a proper tea!
We drank a tea that was called "Yorkshire Gold"
It was one of the smoothest teas with no bitterness.
We had tea and scones every morning;
And this Lady can make the best scones I have ever had!
Lydia is a great cook!
But we did eat in some very fine restaurants while out and about!
Here she is the Pacific Ocean in all her glory...
The Pacific Ocean is very enchanting and demands respect!
There was a sign that stated this;
"Do not go past this point as even on a calm day a wave could
I believed it and I find these signs disturbing yet helpful!
Someone asked me do you want another picture of you here;
"No, I am good thanks anyways!"
The busy hub on the wharf was so alive with gulls squawking,
And boats in the Harbour as far as the eye could see!
Lydia and I walked and just took in the lovely fresh air and the smells!
Our husbands walked and chatted about everything that they were seeing!
We found a restaurant right on the port side of the sea;
It was really one of the best meals we had and we had many!!
Our husbands ordered a plate of fresh Oysters;
They thoroughly enjoyed them;
I did have one myself, but I am pretty sure Lydia declined.
(Quite gracefully, may I add)
Oh, we also shared a cobbler of I think blackberries and Marian Berrys,
Topped with homemade ice cream, it was so good!
We ate it too quick to get a picture--- HA-HA
Here was a lovely tea that I had ordered at this very nice Tea Room
This lovely large shop was filled with antiques and teapots!
I will mention this tea was called White Tea,
It was delicious, but it was filled with caffeine.
(Not sure I slept a wink that night)
Lydia and I truly enjoyed this experience;
We talked and sipped our tea and talked about how tea shops
We were served the best tasting sandwiches I have ever eaten!
She and I ate every last bite (smiles)
While we were out shopping and having lunch our husbands drove
Around the area seeing some historical sites in the area.
This very cute bag here was a bag made by one of Lydias friends!
It is made from an empty feed bag;
She makes them from every kind of feed bag she has cows and puppies;
Even lambs and they are lined with a pretty fabric to match!
Really a strong and useful thing to have!
She is really quite talented!
I must say that vacationing with friends is the way to go!!
We loved all being together and we had such sweet fellowship;
I do not think we even were bored for one minute on this trip!
Thanks dear friends for your lovely and sweet hospitality!
Love and appreciate you both...

What is new around here?
I just got back again from our archery hunting trip!
It was cold and a bit rainy
Our son saw a mountain Lion!
Hubby and I almost went off a cliff with our camper and truck!
(Thank You God for protecting us with putting a tree right where we
Our new camper is now in need of some repairs!
But we did not go off, it was a bit scary!
The road was slippery and we lost traction and we were going to fast!
Hank is getting big and he needs work on his dog behavior!
Waiting for our 9th grandchild to be born soon!
Then off again...
Then home again, jiggity jig!
~Happy Fall Season To Ya All~
