It's been a little over two weeks since I've posted. Time for an update! There's so much I'd like to share.
Keith and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in May. As we both were in need of a vacation and time away together, we quickly formulated a plan last month to head out after the wedding and before the start of the new school year (The kids go back this week.).
Our plan was to drive to the San Francisco bay area and then for the next ten days, travel down the beautiful and scenic California coast (Pacific Coast Highway 1) to Los Angeles where Isaac and Eliza would fly to join us for the last five days of our two week vacation. Our itinerary would include stops in Mill Valley/Sausalito, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Morro Bay, Santa Barbara, and ending our vacation with the children in San Clemente.
As you can imagine, our trip was memorable and special. Beautiful and interesting things to see, explore, and experience, comfortable places to lodge, relaxation and fun and just good to get away.

We used airbnb to find our accommodation rentals. Some of the places we stayed were small apartments and others were studio rooms off the main houses of our hosts. Comfortable, quiet, private, clean, and very affordable, we couldn't have been happier with the experience.
The day after we arrived, we visited Muir Woods. This national park was one place I was especially excited to explore.
Next up: we explore San Francisco...
