Where Have I Been?
Inside of the Bed and Breakfast
In the garden outside of the Bed and Breakfast
Charlie and I had four glorious days away from home, in a charming little Bed and Breakfast nestled in Pacific Grove. It was just what the Doctor had ordered! We got some real R&R not only for both of our bodies, but as well as our mind and soul. This was such a treat for us, only because when we do get away, we almost always take our trailer; which consists of a lot of preparation. In staying at a B&B, you get spoiled with breakfast being made for you and your choice of "hot tea or wine and cheese" (I use the quotations around these two, because you could have made a dinner out of the delightful spread of h'ordeuvres our host Diane would lay out) in the afternoon. It was beautiful and made you feel absolutely pampered!
We found ourselves outside a lot enjoying the garden and have started rethinking the way we have our own yard. Charlie and I would like to incorporate the gardens little nooks of tranquil and peaceful surroundings where one can meditate and enjoy the nature of being outdoors. We already have some designs on how we want to do that and I am really excited about them!
I believe almost half of the valley were vacationing in the Monterey County! In talking with the guest that also stayed at the B&B we learned that they lived only thirty minutes (give or take a few) from where we live. In addition, Charlie and I went to a Restaurant called the Fish House (which I highly recommend), and found out if you don't have reservations, there is a long wait. In waiting, everyone started talking with one another and again I found out, a couple lived where I grew up. We immediately felt that we knew each other somehow because we both thought from the start, we looked very familiar to one another. I love how this happens, although it does boggle the mind in how small the world really is after all.
