Places to go and see!

Looking forward to the Weekend!

Well I can't wait for the weekend to come about. The feeling of having time off just seems to sooth my soul and hopefully get some much needed sleep before the new week starts again on Monday. Even though we are still in a massive heatwave that zaps us the second we walk out the door I am looking forward to possibly going to the beach or mountains this weekend.

The high temps at our house have been reaching an avg. of 104-107 degrees Fahrenheit so needless to say we are desperately trying anyway we can to avoid the heat. Our beaches have been averaging the high 70's to the low 80's and have been tame compared to everywhere else. The beach sounds good as long as we can stay out of the sun, of course having a 10 year old girl will undoubtedly mean that I will be forced to go out and make sure she is okay in the water. She is definitely a handful! I love her more than words could say though. My 16 year old step-daughter will more than likely tanning and talking on the phone at the same time not even caring about anything else but her own personal issues. (Can you say oops I dropped her phone in the salt water!)

Newport Beach has some beautiful places to visit and go to if we decide that is the location we are going to. From taking a Ferry where we can actually park our car on the Ferry and take a ride across the bay over to Balboa. To going on a bike ride down by the beach along the walkway sounds great! You can even rent Jet Skis in the bay to ride or even take a Gondola ride along the canals of the rich and famous homes around the bay. Newport Beach sounds like fun!

I am sure we would have a good time together just hanging out with my wife and watching the scenery go by. That is becoming our favorite past time lately. Just being together and enjoying our time with one another. It does not have to be anything fancy, just as long as we are together having a peaceful, joyous time.

Of course heading to the mountains and getting into some shade beneath the tall Pine Trees listening to them whistle from the wind sounds very tranquil as well. We have been yearning for some small road trip to just let our worries melt away with every mile we put behind us. It would be great to take a picnic basket, a red and white checkered tablecloth and some food and snacks next to a wooded lake just sounds like Heaven! Of course Heaven is much more nicer and cooler!

It would also be nice to spend the night up in some old rustic cabin by a lake too! Man my aches and pains of everyday work and life seem better already just thinking of it. Waking up to cool breezes from the lake and having a great lunch at the shore just sounds what I need! So now that I have two choices, what should I do? Where should we go this weekend? I think I shall talk to my lovely wife and decide together where we should go.

Well I think we shall go to.....

Tune in next time to find out where we went over the weekend!

I think the mountains sounds like a bit more fun since we had a blast in Tehachapi when we completed our roadtrip to Bakersfield. Perhaps taking a swim in the lake or watching the kids tackle waterslides would be a perfect break we need.

SO I will grab the picnic basket or in our case, plastic grocery bags and pack lunch and away we will go!
