Hi everyone,

I have lots of photos to share. I'll only share a few today. Mainly because I'm running out of room on my USB drive. It's time to buy another one soon :) :) So here's just a taste of where I live...

One of the first things I did was take a trip to Pacific Grove. It's right next to Monterey. There's a knitting shop there that I remember visiting years ago. It's still in business :) :) Yes, of course, I bought some sock yarn :) :) Here are three more photos of the place.

The hydrangeas are just gorgeous and pink. I love pink.
This is part of the Lighthouse Produce stand here in Pacific Grove. They have some really good organic produce, as well as international foods.  This particular produce stand operates in a former repair shop for cars.
You'll also notice  a sign for "The Farm Hen". It's the cutest little shop that sells the best vintage stuff I've ever seen. I'll definitely plan to visit this place again, soon :)
Most of the produce is sold inside the former garage/mechanic repair shop.

The rest of the produce is covered by these tents. I think that's very thoughtful. It keeps the fruit from getting burned by the sun.
The rest of these photos are of the ocean in Monterey, California. The weather is really shifty here. We do get sun. We also get lots of mist/fog from the ocean, since we are a city built on the ocean.
These particular shots are of the old fisherman's wharf here in town. 

Those are all my photos for the moment. I would have shared more, except my USB drive is running out of space :) :) Good thing, otherwise, I would have posted a boatload more worth of photos here today :) :)

That's the news from the Pacific Ocean today. Love and hugs, Heather

p.s. I'm working on different "sign offs" for my blog.  If you think of any ideas, please let me know :) :) :)

WONDERFUL!!! Wish you were closer to me (you are about a day's drive from us), as I would LOVE to finally meet my sweet friend! <3

Hope you are settling in well and the photos are beautiful!

Thanks so much for sharing and hope to hear from you soon...when you are able to that is (you did get my e-mail right?)

Much love and blessings,

Miss Antoinette

Beautiful pictures Heather! Looks like a great place! I hope you are doing well and are getting settled in.

Have a blessed weekend!

Looks like a nice place to be, next to the ocean....oh dear, a dream of mine. I'd live in Bandon or Newport, I think, I mean here in Oregon but probably not since this house will be paid of before I retire, which will be good. So I can just go visit the beach. Oh hope things are going good for you and getting all settled in. We are having a heat wave here of 90+ degrees all week. Monday to be in the 80s finally. Going to Field of Flags this afternoon. Hugs and God bless, my friend!

One of my favorite memories of the Carmel--Monterey area is a light fog that hung on the mountainside there--SO pretty! I also loved the charming houses in the Carmel area--reminds me a bit of our Cannon Beach!
I remember you telling me you love the beach and I am SO excited and happy that God has given you a home now there:)

Oh Heather, how beautiful! Looks like someplace I would love to visit sometime. I hope you and your Dad will be happy there, what a great opportunity for you both!

As for your sign off - I liked your California coast earlier, or maybe Cali's coast? Or Views from the ocean?

Oh Heather, you are so fortunate to live there, it's beautiful!! How wonderful to be so close to the ocean. I am envious. =] Such gorgeous pictures!

Sheila said...

What a gorgeous place for you and your father. I never thought I'd say this but I do sometimes miss California! Wish we had a local yarn shop that close. Take care.

Love your new surroundings Heather! It's beautiful there! Hello to the Pacific from Lea! Big hugs to you Heather! I'm delighted for you!!!!

Rebecca said...

Somehow I missed your first post from CA! I'm going to catch up! What a beautiful place you now call "home"!
