Spring Break...Finally!

We've been home from Spring Break for 2 weeks now and I'm just now loading the pictures from the camera. It's been a busy couple of weeks here at home, with lots of subbing, lots of Scout work, and lots of cleaning that just didn't get done! (We won't talk about the whole tax thing. Ugh.) So here are a few pics from our fabulous trip to the beautiful state of California.

We left from Baltimore on March 28th.

Here's a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains from our plane...we had a plane change in Denver. They still have snow!

We landed at John Wayne/Orange County Airport and in our rental car drove to Dana Point, in southern OC. We stayed at a beautiful Ritz-Carleton resort that we NEVER would have been able to stay at if not for Eric's Hilton Hotel points. So thanks, dear!

The lovely Pacific Ocean...from the cliff the hotel was situated on...

The hotel had a beautiful deck where everyone gathered to watch the sunset nightly. Here's Eric enjoying the sunset. And so ended our first night in California. The only thing marring the perfection? Our suitcase ended up in Houston. Thankfully it was delivered to the hotel in the wee hours.

Next up...a lovely day in Dana Point!

  1. Patty~ Your trip sounds like it went well so far at least and you only think it's the beautiful state of California because you don't live here. :)Can't wait to hear more and too bad we couldn't meet, maybe next time??
