Distant conversations

"Distant Conversations" taken at Pismo Beach June 25, 2010


A week ago today, Hubby and I took a drive down the state of California a couple hundred miles to spend an overnighter at Pismo Beach. I was grateful to escape the heatwave that was hitting our part of the state and drive to the coast where it never seems to get too hot. As we always do on road-trips, we talked a lot and then we listened to an audio book together. I think the time spent in the car on the way there is almost as rewarding as the time spent at the destination.

To our delight, our accommodations included a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. After the sun went down, we discovered another delightful surprise. If we opened our balcony door we were being serenaded by the sound of the surf crashing on the beach not far away and the cool ocean breezes fluttered gently into our room.

The coolest thing about this whole trip was that Hubby had gotten our accommodations from a co-worker that had redeemed his frequent flier miles for a hotel voucher and then couldn't use it before the expiration. So he offered it to Hubby for $100. It was the best $100 we've ever spent on a hotel room!

  1. Awesome! On my first honeymoon, we drove from San Francisco, down the crazy winding road to...Pismo Beach where we spent way too much time on the beach the first day and cooked our pale Canadian bodies to a rosie red. *grin* It was also on that drive that we had our first argument as a married couple. Perhaps it was an omen.
