Father's Day and an Update of our Trip

Its always nice to come home after being away.  I love to go and I love to come home again to my own bed.  We had a great visit with all of our family, and saw some lovely sights along the way.  Steve flew back home from Phoenix and Eddie and I drove on to California together.  We stayed at the Navy Base with Russell, and had a great a visit with him.  The ocean was lovely.... I could look at, smell,  and listen to the ocean forever (I envy you ladies who live near the ocean). From there we drove up to Nevada and visited my Mom, brother and nieces.  We came home by way of Utah... a very pretty route. I am posting the pictures that Eddie and I took along the way.  Unfortunately they are unedited, so I think even the bug slpats on the windshield show up in some of them... sorry.

Today is Father's Day.  Happy Father's Day to my precious Dad and my precious hubby and also to my son Nathan, and my sons in law Jon and Benjamin;  to me the best Dads in the world.  Love you so much.

From desert to mountains to ocean to desert to canyons  to mountains and home.  My camera did me wrong again.... only half of my pictures downloaded.  I had some great ones of Eddie, Russ, the ocean, some seals and more... oh well. perhaps I will get a new camera one of these days.

Have a lovely week everyone.
Blessings to all,


  1. Welcome home Pam. What spectacular scenery! So glad you enjoyed your trip. I also need a new camera - the flap that hols the batteries in place has broken on mine and I need to keep my thumb underneath every time I take a shot or the batteries fall out. So waiting for the SLRs to come down in price which is what they appear to be doing. Maybe just another 6 months of awkward picture taking!

  2. I love what pics did load! We took our first trip out west just a couple of weeks ago, and I still can't get over all the beautiful mountains we saw. We drove through the NE tip of Utah, and WOW! It's hard not to be jealous of those who get to wake up and see those beautiful mountains every day.

    I love the ocean too, but there's just something about majestic mountains that makes my heart go pitter patter!lol

  3. Well, I do have the privilege of being beside the ocean, but I *love* these mountains.....
    Between your photos and OMSHs, and our long-time longing to 'head West', the travel bug is *really* biting here!
    Great to have you 'back home'... x
