This past weekend my fella and I took a little trip into the mountains for a little R&R. One of the things I really love about California is that in a couple hours of time your entire scenery and landscape can change. In 2 hours you can be in the desert, then the mountains, then along the coast! Ahh, California I love you!
The first leg of our trip was just lots of open skies and open road. We stopped off the side of the road at one point so I could pick wild flowers to press later. The compilation photo above is probably my favorite of my fella and I. We're both wearing our every day garb (him usually in a plain white shirt, me in my favorite denim button up)...it started sprinkling when the photo was snapped of me and clearly I was enjoying that. *hehe*
There was no internet service at our final destination so for nearly 24 hours I was without access to the entire world. The first few hours my mind was basically in a wild panic..."what the hell am I suppose to be doing now?!" But after awhile we just walked around, visited the town center (which consisted literally of one boutique, one cafe, one pizza place, one bar, one church, and 3 real estate offices). Happily the next morning I discovered that the cafe had free wi-fi. Hooray!
The next day we did some serious antique shopping. I think we filled up my fella's truck with tons of loot! Yippie! The little mini California road trip ended with an impromptu stop at a historical landmark, Fort Tejon, which is where the following photos were all snapped.
