Our vacation began like most of our trips
....with a visit to the Apple Farm.
It is always delightful and we feel so relaxed and spoiled.
This time we were greeted by the Easter Bunny....
how fun is that???
The Inn was decorated with the most lovely decor...and it is all for sale.
Jim told me that the sheep would not fit in the car.
Whimsical, delightful eye candy.....and always such an inspiration.
A trip to the Central Coast is not complete
without stopping at the Avilla Barn.
....and lots of goodies to tempt your inner child!!!
Back country drives include a stop at Linn's Farm...
...where someone felt that homemade pie makes for a great lunch.
We left the Apple Farm and took the Big Sur drive.
I have never seen it
Wildflowers met the sea...
...and in Pacific Grove we found a rock in memory of John Denver,
who sadly crashed his plane in these waters.
Carmel is a magical town of fairytale cottages and shops.
This one was my favorite.
A combination of luxury bath items
and antique French Christening Gowns.
Yes....our vacation had just begun and
already we were having the time of our lives.
