The weather is finally cooling down here in the Central Valley. However, it is still not that cool. True, the mornings are chillier, but it often get ups into the 70s by mid afternoon.
Sunday morning, we were at our favorite bagel shop. The temperature was 61 degrees. So sweatshirt weather, sure. However, we saw this person all bundled up. Puffer jacket, stocking cap, knit scarf...you'd think it was already down in the 40s!
We left shortly after noon to head to Carmel on the coast. A massive rainstorm was predicted and we were meeting our dear friends, Russ and Ingrid, from Calgary. It did rain overnight in Carmel but Monday was a beautiful day.
We drove along the coast in Pacific Grove and the waves where huge--we don't remember seeing waves like that in a really long time.
We had dinner at the Shadowbrook, a restaurant we enjoyed so much when we celebrated our anniversary there in June.
These flowers were outside the restaurant where we had breakfast Tuesday morning. I don't know what they are, but aren't they pretty?
We haven't been able to see Russ and Ingrid in two years because of the pandemic and it was wonderful to finally spend time together again.
Can you believe Halloween is just a couple of days away?!
Christmas is just around the corner. If you are part of the Grammar Police Society, you will appreciate this.
Raise your hand if the thought of lots of holiday gatherings make you feel like this...
