This earlier weekend, I visited my twin sis and dad, and we drove up to Mendocino, California…
But 1st! When I arrived, I grabbed a rapid meal with Paul’s brother and his spouse. We ordered two pizzas to share, and a person was topped with a fried egg — I experienced overlooked how scrumptious eggs are on pizza. Here’s a recipe, if you’re in the mood.
Then we drove up north and took walks together the coast. Damn, Mendocino is attractive with its salty wind and scent of wildflowers.
We stayed at the Blair Hotel in town. The 1888 Victorian’s exterior appeared as Jessica Fletcher’s home in Murder, She Wrote, but I was even far more taken by the bedrooms. How lovely are these designs on designs on patterns?
I necessarily mean!!! (I tracked down the wallpaper, if anyone’s curious.)
This was my dad’s cozy bedroom…
…and his rest room wallpaper.
We snooped close to the other rooms, way too, but we favored ours the ideal, haha.
We put in the weekend taking cliff walks, searching in bookstores, taking in fish tacos, gossiping about our family members, admiring redwoods, and pulling about when I obtained carsick on Route 1!
We also watched Frasier reruns at the lodge each evening, which is secretly a person of my most loved components of touring.
My dad’s eyes when we claimed goodbye manufactured my coronary heart melt. Our family members has constantly lived much aside, and I really feel so grateful any time we get to devote time jointly.
What about you? What tiny things have you been noticing and experiencing lately? I’d really like to hear…
P.S. My trick to taking pleasure in family journey, and what’s your #1 journey tip?
