This was supposed to be a house update post, but my husband surprised me with a night away to Big Sur, so I put my laptop away and unplugged for 24 hours. It's my birthday next week and since he'll be far, far away, he sweetly planned a wonderful getaway to celebrate a little early.
I had never been to Big Sur before, but it's now one of my all time favorite places for a weekend away. It's so breathtakingly beautiful! Just the drive along Highway 1 is worth the trip!
Isn't that cool how the sun has those triangles like we used to draw it?
We went for a hike after breakfast and along the way spotted a few wild turkeys making a run for it! Can you see him above between the trees?
I have never seen this done before, but I thought it was such a great idea I had to share it with you. When pumpkins are on the vine and still small, lightly engraving them will allow a scar to form later when they're big. Don't worry, it doesn't hurt them! Mark your calendar now to remember to check your nearest pumpkin farm next summer to order your custom design in time for Halloween.
The beauty of Big Sur is that on one side you have the vast Pacific ocean and on the other - Redwoods and vistas.
Fall is the best time of year to visit the coastal towns of Northern California. The indian summers can last long into late October and early November.
Remember the wild turkey's we saw in the woods? Their cover was blown and we spotted them trying to get the heck out of dodge in this Lexus! Pecking on the door with their beaks attacking their reflections - the poor car owner is in for a big surprise! But, it is a tough time of year to be a turkey!
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
