Camping

We took a trip up to Greens Peak last weekend and did a little camping. Here is the face of a happy little camper after an afternoon trip into Greer for ice cream.

This is a beaver dam on the creek at Sheeps Crossing.
Tyce thought this place was pretty cool and enjoyed throwing rocks and sticks in the water.


Here"s the women fixing foil dinners, Kendall followed it up with a dutch oven cobbler.


This was a happy little camper all weekend. You can't beat acres of dirt, rocks, sticks and bugs.

S'more San Diego Stuff

I thought I would put up some more pictures from our most excellent trip to San Diego.


This is proff we were there!
Hangin' out on the sun deck looking out toward Point Loma.

Me and the Penster on break from our bike ride.


We rode bikes from one end of Coronado to the other. It was one of our favorite parts of the trip.
There is a paved bike path that goes clear around Coronado and it's a real easy ride.


Penny wanted to get the bike in the picture as proof she really rode around the town. This park has a great view of the city in the background.

Hello from Coronado

Penny and I are in San Diego staying at the Hotel Del Coronado on Coronado Island. This is an old historic hotel that was built in 1888. The movie Some Like It Hot with Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis was filmed here. We have always thought Coronado Beach was the best beach in the area and the hotel backs right up to it.

Here Penny and I are on the beach in front of the hotel. It was a little breezy and cool today but still really nice.

These are picture of the hotel - this is the bedroom in our suite.
Chillaxin' in the living room



The view from the balcony overlooking the garden. The red tree down there is the biggest bouganvilla I have ever seen.


This is the front of the hotel, it's pretty impressive.

I have some more stuff that I will post later. Right now it's time to grab some frozen yogurt and sit on the sun deck in front of the fire to watch the sun set. Yeah, that's pretty cool.
