Traveling the California Coast but . . .

Hello all,

We are out traveling the California Coast for a few days so things will be quiet on the blog front.  We are headed to to Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez, Monterey, Big Sur and Solvang.  We will visit some colleges, see wildlife (sea otters), Monterey Aquarium, experience the Danish town of Solvang, mini Shetland ponies, ostriches and more.   I have fond memories as a young’in vacationing in these areas so it will be fun to take our daughter.  Unfortunately, I’m sure we will see some of the devastation from the wildfires.  I’ll be sharing about our trip on Instagram and Facebook  so if you’re interested feel free to join me.  As well, I’ll be sketching and painting in my cherished travel journal and be sharing bits and pieces there.  Do you have a travel journal?

In the meantime, here’s a great post by my sweet friend Laura Bray regarding treasure spots near Solvang, California.  Enjoy . . .
