We've just returned from a beautiful week in three perfect spots: Bass Lake, Yosemite, & San Francisco. We are refueled, reconnected, worn out, and happy. Tonight I will just share a few favorite photos before collapsing with contentment onto our much missed bed. Good night.
raspberry picking in Bass Lake.
…and blowing dandelions.
tree huggers in the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias (just inside Yosemite National Park)
skipping rocks (or trying to) on the Merced River, just next to our campsite
the sheet fort in the woods
a favorite hike by the stream
late night games with Amy & Rob, who conquered Half Dome, by the way!
the boys (and the ever present flashlight) by the campfire, all tuckered out.
the Golden Gate Bridge at night, as seen from the front of our hotel on the third leg of our trip
…and as seen early next morning by the bay. Each morning we woke up, fueled ourselves with free croissants and coffee on the front porch of the hotel, then walked across the lawn to this deserted and beautiful spot. Aaahhh…
one of my favorite moments…flying our kite on the hotel lawn with the city and the bridge as a backdrop. Can we say blessed?
And I'll leave you with a view of the breathtaking Yosemite valley, where every pathway lead me to say, "Oh my gosh, look at this! It's gorgeous! I have to take a picture here." And so I did.
