Beauty and the Bucket List...

The final few days of our CA trip were spent in beautiful Carmel watching my husband and father beat their chest and jump for joy. They didn't actually beat their chest but I did see a sparkle in Dave's eye that I'm not even sure I saw on our wedding day. All kidding aside, we took a drive down Highway 1, went through the cute little shops in Carmel, drank wine by the fire pits while listening to the bag piper at Spanish Bay, and the guys put a big check mark on their bucket list when they played golf at Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay.

If I'm going to talk Dave into a vacation I have to speak his 18-hole love language.

I'm not above compromise, the language was spoken, and the 44 photos below (yes, that could be considered over share, but it's my blog) tell the tale. The courses were beautiful, the wind coming off the Pacific was COLD, and the people who live on Pebble Beach...bless their hearts. It's a shame they have no view.

 The trees were enormous! And gorgeous!
 Zsa Zsa, doing her best to stay warm. I think this is when I caught her tweeting. :)
Sadly, all good things must come to an end!
 The view at sunset from my parent's hotel room...bless their heart too...
 Golf Day 2- Spanish Bay, with my brother. :) Kristen, I took this pic for you! Dad- putting his father's day present to good use. Haha!
 Mom and I finished Dave, Dad and Taylor's perfect day in our perfect way...with the S'more-something-or-another. It was so many levels beyond amazing. And that, my friends, is the 44 photo end of our CA days! If you actually scrolled to the end you are such a trooper! XOXO ~ Tiffany

The views, the scarfs, the smores - I'm jealous!

Kara said...

Jealous on so many levels... the views, the yummy looking smores dessert, but probably most of all because of the fact that y'all were cold! What I'd give to be cold right now!

Beautiful pictures! As a golfer, Pebble is on my bucket list too. Did you play at all or just document from the golf cart?!

Ok... so the pic of Dave on the green with the PB tree behind him is a framer. The one of you and him with your hair blowing in the wind is AWESOME. I love that he wore a blanket by the fire pit... looks like a snuggie. And I die for your s'more. OMG. I am totes Jeal. Not gonna lie.

You have me missing Monterey and Carmel. For over 10 years, we would stay at the Inn at Spanish Bay and loved it! We quit going about the time Clint Eastwood bought PB. He used to hang in the bar at the SB. We always went in August and it was always so nice and cool...a refreshing change from our Texas summers! Now that our daughter is 11, I think we're safe to return! Thanks for the great memories!
