our little getaway

happy monday! hope you all had a lovely weekend! tom and i had the best little getaway, really just what we needed.  we are waiting for another roll of film and will share that when it is ready but for now here are some snippets of our weekend.
of course we rode gilbert out to point reyes but had to go through sf to get there...on the way to the golden gate bridge we spotted the banana guy from jamba juice, poor guy...i hope he gets paid more then minimum wage to strut around in that get up and i am sure he was less then please to have me take a picture of him while we flew by on gilbert.

we stopped in the redwoods to catch a break and drink some water, man the weather was AMAZING and it was hot as hell too! could not resist taking a picture of the moss, soo cool!!!!!!

this was a our case for the next two days, isnt it adorable?!?!? we had a hard time leaving, the little back yard was awesome! we hung out there alot, drank wine while listening to npr and tried not to get poked in the face from the hummingbirds that were chasing each other in the yard.

we spotted so much wild life, this little guy being one of them. i am so curious as to what he is gonna look like when he comes out of his cocoon! we also ran into 4 snakes, one being dead, thank goodness, sorry not a huge snake fan, 1 sad little bat that was dead on the side of the road and 1 hawk, a swarm of quials and countless deer. this time of year is deer mating season so there were tons of them everywhere! oh and don't forget the cute little hummingbirds!

we went on a "hike" which ended up being the worst idea possible. it was HOT, no shade and tom was inappropriately dressed for hiking, long pants, thermal AND flannel, in the hot weather. he ended having to buy a t-shirt at the store. we sat, drank a shit ton of water and stuffed ourselves, well actually speak tom did, hehe.
found some awesome wood teepee's and then headed right to the local saloon to grab some much needed cold beers to wipe away the "hike" from hell. hehe


 we ate out both nights, heaven, drank local beers and downed some local oysters, my favorite! the first night we had brick oven pizza while enjoying the awesome backyard of the restaurant. the view from our table was amazing, i actually took several of these shots because i was obsessed with the little vignette.



 point reyes station is tiny but lucky enough to have the yummiest CUTEST dinner EVER! we ate there twice. it was a yummy farewell. we headed out early friday morning and enjoyed awesome weather on the ride back home.

we are planning our next trip back. it was just a great place to really get away from everything and spend quality time with each other but sometimes i wish that we could just escape from everything and live out in the hills in a tiny little town with the hills and ocean as our backyard...***sigh***

oh and don't forget 15% off in my little store, sale ends november 1st, use SOINLOVE code at check out!

  10. sounds like a perfect way to spend some alone time with your man. I am digging that orange dress/striped cardigan combo. Very cute. As for the snakes, I say burn them all! Okay maybe not burn them just keep them far away from me.
