Cambria with Kids

IMG_9750Hello all– I guess you know there’s few things a mom likes more than time with her kids.  Ours are scattered far afield, but this past weekend we met up in Cambria for windy walks, good meals, a little touristing and some late night Trivial Pursuit.  And stories.  I could listen to them go forever.  So here’s a few pics from our weekend away.  It was grand.

We joined the cluster of tourists trundling up the hills to Hearst Castle, built almost a century ago to contain the architectural and art collections of of William Randolph Hearst–at points imposing, other moments beautiful and surrounded by views of velvety hills and the sea.

And you know I sure did enjoy sitting down to eat pretty meals that I didn’t have to cook.  We talked over plates of curry, baskets of sandwiches, servings of ham and eggs…

The shores of middle California are rockier, more wild than our sandy, busy beaches down south.  We walked along the wooden boardwalk watching waves thunder in and joined the crowds peering down at the rows of lugubrious elephant seals.  And our windy sunset walk sent us scurrying along the cliffs.  So much beauty.

P.S.  thanks Larry & Ani for the photos I stole–good ones!
