I am enjoying a Fall Women’s Retreat in SanClemente
Please enjoy the sun and fun!
My sweet best friend and husband included me as his guest at his company conference at this lovely Cape Coddish resort. I feel so loved and pampered.
We have a third floor room with a balcony. Nice. The first thing I did after showering is grab
my camera and launched out on a quiet ocean shimmering adventure to discover and capture what I could.
There is an awesome park out front with grassy knolls, gorgeous pines, shady paths, peeks at the harbor, hilly neighborhoods, and flora and fauna to dazzle and make you smile.
The most riveting and awesome of discoveries was found as I entered the voluminous cathedral of living ancient pines. I felt hushed awe as if approaching the throne room of God.
Our last vacation day was going to be a ferry trip to Nantucket island. Again, a lifelong dream of mine. But we had a late start and discovered the round trip alone would take 4 hours of our time. That and our late start became the deciding factors for creating plan “B” which turned out to be the most awesome and wonderful day ever!!! We set out looking for antique row and ended up visiting a gorgeous farm and jams store. It had a lovely pond, a small reptile zoo and wonderful gardens. As our search progressed we stumbled upon an enormous bridge spanning the Cape Cod canal. This canal, built between 1933-1935 is the widest canal on the planet. It shortened the trip around the Cape from 3 days to 30 minutes! It was in exploring the jetty next to the mouth of the canal we met several new friends that helped fill in the blanks on the history of the region. Then, finally as we were overlooking a bluff we met a skateboarding girl that suggest we check out The Plimouth Plantation. The visitor center provided tours of an actual indian village, a pilgrim village, a craft center and a replica of the Mayflower. All areas were staffed with real indians and people dressed and in character of the period. It was phenomenal!
