Trip to the West Coast

Last month Chris and I had the opportunity to fly out to the west coast.  Technically, we went for "work" (Church planter's boot camp) but we fit in lots of fun too!  I met a couple new great girlfriends and we now have a list of friends to visit in California.

A few things that stuck out in my mind.....

  • Seagulls in San Francisco are way bigger than the ones close to home.
  • I love the sound of the wind blowing through palm trees.
  • The Golden Gate Bridge is pretty impressive but you really have to see it in person to appreciate it.
  • Mediterranean flavored cheese tastes really good.
  • I have no desire to live in a big hustling/bustling city.
  • People in small town visitors centers know their stuff.
  • If In-N-Out Burgers made it's way to the east coast they'd have our business.
  • I don't like flying.  I get dizzy and light-headed at every take off and land.  
  • Vineyards and wineries are beautiful.
  • White wine is still my favorite....I just can't make red work for me.
  • Grapes right off of a vine are so much better than from the store shelves.
  • Give me the East Coast beaches any day.

  1. I can't do red wine either... there are very few that I only kind of like. I'm glad you guys are doing well. I miss all of you very much!
