Big Sur!

Jim and I had a weekend camping getaway to Big Sur and had a great time! I especially enjoyed myself as Jim took over as "Camp Chef Extraordinaire" and handled ALL the food duties! His "killer" omelettes were blue ribbon quality once again! On the way we stopped at our favorite "secret" beach:) Our dog, Riley, had a good break from sitting in the car by obsessively retrieving the stick from the ocean...well, she is a Labrador retriever:)
To Karaline, Megan, Zeke and Jake...We tried to include the names of our grandchildren in the sand, but it was too difficult to read, so we settled for "We love U." XOXOXOXO

We did some geocaching while in Big Sur. Here I am in the "danger" zone checking out a clue:)

Jim and Riley on the trail to the cache.

On a rigorous hike, Jim stopped to munch on an appropriately named snack:)

View from our hiking trail...beautiful even with the fog rolling in!

On our way home...this is the typical view from the passenger side mirror whenever Riley is along in the car:)

Big Sur looked really pretty! Karaline saw the picture and said that Riley is her friend : ) She (and we) can't wait to see Riley at christmas...and of course you too! : )

what a beautiful view! I asked Jesse if he thinks I could hike there even if I was pregnant (maybe 3 1/2 months?) in December... :P
Riley looks cute! :P And good job, Papa Sparks, for the omelettes! :)
