Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

Every year our family goes to San Francisco to watch a Giants game. This year everyone was able to make it which made this trip extra special.

Willie McCovey is always there to greet us.

The company my husband retired from has a special game day where they provide a tailgate lunch which we get to enjoy so we don’t go into the ballpark hungry.

This picture is from last year, but this is the beautiful view that you can see from the ballpark.

This year the game was extra exciting taking 14 innings to get a winner, which was the Giants. But unfortunately I missed the home run that won the game. I did get to hear the roar of the crowd

Our youngest grandchild loves to watch all the ships that cross our view, like this tugboat Annie pulling this ship out to sea.

And of course we always take a family group picture for memories sake.san fran family pic 💜❤️💜❤️

No, not like the movie, but a fun trip with two daughters, a granddaughter and myself.

We laughed at silly things that probably no one else would laugh at.  We teased each other without getting mad, and we shared one bathroom without yelling at one another.

Every girl needs a trip like this.

We visited Mission Santa Barbara, which was beautiful and full of California history.

The beaches were lovely.  We watched the sunset at Ventura Beach.

In downtown Santa Barbara we tasted a new food, Goa tacos, which were different from what we are familiar with, but were very tasty.

On one afternoon we managed to beat everyone else to the spa at our hotel.

And because we had such a successful trip, we celebrated by treating ourselves to some yummy ice cream treats.

Next year, same time, different place.💗💜💗💜

The weather forecast did not look promising, but we still decided to take our trip.

Once a year we take my sister-in-law on a little trip. It’s always hard for them to  get together, so this is a good time to catch up on family stuff.

So were drove to the Pacific Coast, to a little town called Cambria.

The first day was cold and windy as we walked on the pier. Luckily we had our big jackets on for warmth.

 

But the ducks didn’t mind as they rode the waves.

The landscape was as  verdant as what I imagined Ireland to be.

Gorgeous plants displayed their best blooms.

One the second day it rained, and we had to walk the beach under an umbrella.

On our last night we enjoyed cocktails in the lounge.

I’m not a drinker but still ordered a Lemon Drop Martini, which was way too strong and had to pass it on to hubby.  Hubby ordered a Triple X-Rated Martini, but really  meant to say X-Rated Martini, which made the cocktail waitress smile.♥♥♥♥
