Over the weekend the husband and I escaped to California's central coast for some fresh sea air, sunshine, and relaxation to celebrate our anniversary. The weather was exceptionally beautiful, which came as a bit of a happy surprise as this is November- but hey, who can complain? We enjoyed lots of walks along the shore, toured around Hearst Castle, indulged in some delicious meals made with local provisions, and kicked our feet up while we watched the waves roll in. The quiet little beach town we stayed in is one of my favorites, and the locals were so friendly and kind. It was so lovely to be at the beach surrounded by so much natural beauty, and I can't wait to go back!
