Things I Loved About Memorial Day Weekend

I haven't feel like I haven't blogged in forever! Last week was busy with a new employment opportunity writing travel articles for Examiner.com (see my profile here!), and planning for a great weekend getaway to Cambria, California, thanks to the generosity of my aunt and uncle who invited us to stay at their beach house with them.

Just a few highlights from our trip:

Grilling some famous Hearst beef for dinner at home

Wildflowers - everywhere!

Seeing the sea lions

Having afternoon tea

The best ribs and potato salad I've ever had (at Hot City BBQ in Los Banos, CA)

The most adorable cottage and garden I've seen

Olive oil tasting, with my favorites tangerine olive oil
and olive jam (sweet, salty, amazing!)

The ocean, and that particular humidity that you can only inhale in a coastal town.

What did you do last weekend?


  1. Sweet! We we're in SLO the same time you guys were just up the coast...who knew:) Looks like you and Paul had a great time:)

  2. Wow, wonderful! Enjoy your new writing gig. We just walked and talked and read, the usual. I also spent some time thinking about all who have fought to protect our freedom.

  3. @Mark: So close, yet so far. Miss you guys!
    @Denise: Your weekend sounds fantastic!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
