"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such" - Henry Miller
During our visit to Carmel Valley, California... we took a short drive up the coast, along Highway 1, to Big Sur. The drive is amazing, breathtaking, heavenly, glorious, and every other word you can think of to describe something that can only be given by our Father. Truly majestic. Many golden moments as we took in the beauty of the coast.
The drive is full of steep cliffs overlooking the most amazing, blue water crashing upon the rocks that are the shore. We stopped to take in this massive bridge along the drive, of which I can not comprehend the dedicated men that used their hands to build it in 1932.
(All I could think of is all the estate sale finds I would no longer have to turn down due to not fitting in my Volvo.)
We stopped at a great place for lunch, called Nepenthe. It overlooks the ocean and a gorgeous green valley.
Food was great, view was better. They even had an awesome gift shop, where we spent some fun time shopping.
Outside the restaurant, I found this succulent arrangement on a wall. I'd love to make one... I couldn't afford the $295 price tag for this one. Nor could I have gotten it on the plane.
Yes, it was hanging on a wall and it was gorgeous! The little succulents were nestled behind the chicken wire and I loved it. Lets make one.
I love being able to capture these moments, golden moments, as Stephen and I travel and spend time together. We have the best time and I love being given such a wonderful friend, and husband, in him.
He even puts up with my silly picture ideas ;)
