We just returned from a delightful week at Michael's house in Southern California. Here are some highlights and pictures:
-Because of a rainy winter and the scattering of wildflower seeds as a cover crop after the fires, Temecula has never been prettier. Everything was green except for the vast expanses on the hills that were covered by orange, yellow, and purple wild flowers.
-Played miniature golf, rode a tandem bike to a large botanical garden, and ate ice cream on Catalina Island.
-Spent a whole day and a night with Rebecca and Chaz!!
-Loads of delicious meals out and in with Michael's family.
-Swimming in the outdoor pool.
-Morning bike ride.
-Hiking along the plateau to the verdant pools.
-Picnic in Balboa Park.
-Sunshine! mid to high 70's almost every day. (but we never got a bad sunburn).
-More love, less stress.
My nearest and dearest.
