the traditional Monterey momma/daughter trip

Momma & Daughter
A hole in the wall boutique
Pampering galore
Darling resting and eatting choices Don't forget the coffee...or bottled water!
Some of the greatest unique things for the home
Always time for a cold brew
Have your palm read?
And yet another darling place to spend our money

These were some of the creative signs along the way, I found them fascinating! A true testament to the owners inside. I encourage you to go to Monterey California if it fits into your budget. Clam Chowder in a bread bowl is a must, (however us gluten free girls have to settle for steamed clams) And this, of course, must be eaten on The Wharf. This year we had a fabulous spa day and definitely did more shopping than usual. Another year gone by, more matching rings for our fingers and precious memories made together :)

Oh darling darlene......

What a great time you had with Angela. Darling picture of you two.

I got to do the same with my sweet sister Donna last week. One of our favorite places too. I saw many of those delightful signs but my camera is still in the shop!

Loving on you, and your advice for J. is working....and she is getting better every day.

Love and Hugs
Wanda Mom

I am so happy that you got to spend time once again with your precious daughter. That one on one time is so special and rare in this busy world we live in.

I thought I was the only person who took photos of signage. Great pictures!

Hope that you are feeling well.

I love Monterey. You make me realize I need a trip out to Cali. Now, if my bank account will just cooperate...
