A Birthday Weekend

To celebrate my birthday hubby and I decided to go to Monterey, CA, a gorgeous little town located along the Pacific coast about 60 miles from us. We spent our days talking walks, enjoying the wonderful weather which was mostly in the lows 70s along the coast in Monterey and on the streets and beach of Carmel. We even got daring enough to rent a surrey bike and pedal along the ocean...talk about WORKOUT! LOL! Our evenings were quiet spent at our hotel reading, stitching, and just relaxing. We took plenty of photos which I will post soon to our photo blog.
I started a new project by Bent Creek as part of a SAL with the other members of the Bent Creek, HIH and Trilogy Yahoo group.
I haven't added much to my stash lately but here are a few things I've purchased lately.
And last but not least is this wonderful Pendleton Tote Bag which my husband got for me.

Sounds like a lovely weekend. I love, love Monterey! I had a chance to visit while my son was stationed at the Defensive Language School about 8-9 years ago, and wanted to stay!! So different than the Atlantic coast that we're accustomed to. Thanks for the memories!!
