Wordless Wednesday…together

There’s not better way to start the day than to go French at Sweet Wheat. With grandson in the stroller, we relaxed on the patio enjoying pastries, coffee, and baguette sandwiches before heading out for a last walk on a perfect southern California morning, delaying our departure until about noon.

Continuing the French theme, my husband spotted this snail burrowing away in its flower. It was safe from me. Snails aren’t on my menu anywhere I am!

We had a classic morning to take with us on our drive home. Of course this was the last body of water we saw but we survived traffic and manic drivers to arrive safely back, already missing that grandchild. 🙂 Thanks for sticking around through my sporadic posting throughout the long weekend. I hope you enjoyed a bit of the personal.

Started the day with a trip to the farmers market. Why no pictures you ask? True answer… forgot all about it. I was too busy buying whole-grain sourdough bread, green garlic, leeks, and apples. So sue me. (Dictation would like you to believe I bought leaks but I actually bought edible leeks.😁). Then we had a lot of baby time but no trip is complete without at least one visit to Sweet Wheat for panna cotta with raspberries and a mocha.

Speaking of the farmers market, there’s the always intriguing question, at least to me, of whether it’s the “farmers market” because there are farmers there or is it the “farmers’ market” because it belongs to the farmers?

A walk is always good and during this one I caught some light on a leaf creating a little abstract leaf portrait. For all you Thursday Doors people, I also found more doors, but you’ll have to wait ‘til next week for those. 😉. Pretty sure I did not walk off all the calories from the panna cotta and the mocha, but I’m fine with that.

Of course no trip to the beach is complete without an ocean view. View? Great. Days off with family? Priceless!

One Word Sunday 4.3.22

for One Word Sunday and Life in Colour: black/grey

How about some orange roofs for Life in Colour…if you can tear your eyes away from the beach, ocean, and far view. This was part of a delightful time of driving around looking at expensive houses with fabulous views during my recent visit to Southern California.

My nomination for this travel photo challenge came from Su at Zimmerbitch. Same old same old: one travel photo, no explanation necessary. Today’s invitation goes all the way to Finlan, where Ritva is trying to survive the dark of a Scandinavian winter. Take us away to somewhere sunny, Ritva, and if you do, link or pingback to my post/blog. Or just enjoy my photo when it gets dark.
