Home, Sweet Home!

If you go anywhere, even paradise, you will miss your home. Malala Yousafzai

I have been out of town for over three weeks!  And own own shower....feels so good!  I love to travel but I really love to come home!

My daughter Andrea and I went to Pacific Grove, CA...between Monterrey and take a couple of art quilt classes.  And while there we revisited some favorite spots in the area.  We stayed our first night, a Saturday, in Pacific Grove right on Ocean Drive with Monterrey Bay right across the street.  That evening we got some great pictures of the Bay and sunset.

The next morning we got up real early and started walking up the beach again.  It was a little chilly but a great walk!  We asked this gentleman where was a good place to get breakfast and he told us to keep going in the same direction, towards Monterrey, which we did.  We actually walked to where Pacific Grove becomes Monterrey and had breakfast at  a place called Fresh Awakenings.

Fresh Awakenings- We ate inside as it was a bit chilly!
Then we hiked back to the motel to shower, pack up and get ready to go to Asilomar.  We had to check in then were to go to our classes by 5:00 to have a short class that evening...a bit of an introduction, etc..

Lobby in the Main Building where we checked in
Our dorm building-our room was at the end.
The view from our window...the whole back wall was glass...our own patio...a huge room!
Merrill Hall- where my class was at one end.  Also where the general assembly was held each evening.

The dining hall where we ate all our meals.
Asilomar Beach-every morning we would take a walk among the dunes.  
Walkers are requested to stay on the boardwalk when at the dunes because of the fragile ecosystem.

And after dinner, before the general assembly meetings, we would walk down again to catch the sunsets.
One of our last nights' there we saw a finger nail moon with Venus in the west sky.
