Finding time...


I have had no time to play in my craft room lately so
I thought I would share some photos of our last
camping trip to the coast of California.


A lot of people would not enjoy this type of camping
but I have to say it is one of our favorite spots to go lately.



I really think I like because your so close to the ocean..



And the Beach here is just beautiful..
Even though I really don't know how they are swimming that
water was freezing.. 




So you just don't see these types of signs in Las Vegas.





My hubby's foot print in the sand.. I wasn't wearing shoes so mine
didn't show up.. 




My husband was not to happy when I pulled out all my craft supplies,
But it was pretty fun to dabble with my mixed media supplies while looking
out the window at the ocean..  Could life get any better..




Well we as you are reading this we are gone again..
This time we headed for Duck Creek, UT.



Another one of our favorite spots..
So green and cool and beautiful.



These photos were taken on last years trip.
But this year should be a little better..  Any ideas why?
I am sure you know!!



Well thanks for taking a look at my photos.. Sorry there were so many!
I will have something crafty to show you real soon!!


Hugs, Linda

Love your vacation trip photos! How fun it must be! Oh to the question about "could it get any better than looking out at the ocean while crafting." A nice Margarita in hand! Have a blast!

Becca said...

i would love to be in that lineup by the ocean
i'm getting so bored with being in the same ole site as a host...but the upside of that is free camping! i'm a roamer though...i want to pick up stakes and go :D

Oh, your photos are so refreshing, Linda! I can't wait to get out on the open road on our camping trip later this summer. I'm chomping at the bit! I hope you are having a terrific time!! :D

Have a wonderful trip Linda!

Beautiful trip photo's Linda! Glad you are enjoying your summer. As much as I would enjoy the beach, I still think of the rash I get from the sand. I still love the ocean and the waves. and Utah, I have only been once in July 2008. I drove from Trinidad Colorado to Grand Junction, Co. spending the night with friends before continuing on to Salt Lake. There is so much beautiful country in the United States. But alas I think I have done all the traveling I am going to do. Just me, the cats, and the garden! Happy 4th!
