Eesh…

I don’t know where the time goes!

However, I will announce that I am now officially ON vacation! So that means more time… more time to sleep, more time to avoid the things I should be doing (*ahem* Looking at you, unit development!) and oh! Well, spending time here, too.

Plus, we actually got away for an overnight stay. It felt like forever, because we turned it into an earlyish morning takeoff and a very late night return. School feels far away and misty. (Another reason to keep it that way by avoiding UD!)

A new snapshots of where we were:

Hearst Castle! And the indoor pool, a little over-the-top, I suppose…

Montana de Oro State Park… with complementary addition of seagull feasting on what may be a sea cucumber, and…

Elephant Seal Beach. And my family complains that I never do anything but landscapes. But this time with cooperating wildlife! Ha!

However, the monarch butterflies were not nearly as cooperating at the grove in Pismo Beach, and dang, those little things are fast! I would have given you a shot of a eucalyptus tree and told you to hunt, but none of those tree shots are in my Dropbox file. Lucky you!

Plans for the remainder of this week include writing. Real writing. Wow.
