We planned a little last minute trip up the coast to our favorite vacation spot, The Sea Ranch. Not many people know about this little hidden gem. If I could pick anywhere that's fairly inexpensive and close I would pick Sea Ranch. There is absolutely nothing to do and that's why we love it!
We took off Friday right after I got off of work and ended up getting to the house we rented at about 9:30. Of course we had to get in the hot tub and enjoy the sound of the crashing waves and the HUGE full moon that night.
Saturday morning we accidentally slept in until 11!! I guess we both needed to catch up on some sleep. Saturday's agenda consisted of drinking coffee on the front patio and reading. Going for a walk along the trails down to the beach where we had a little picnic lunch. We got in the hot tub and then showered before heading into the little town of Gualala to pick up our FAVORITE pizza. We ate pizza while we played Mexican Train and then hopped back in the hot tub before going to bed.
Sunday morning we got up and ate breakfast and read some more, played Mexican Train some more and went on a 5 mile walk on the trails that run along the coast. After our walk we ate lunch and then hopped in the hot tub before showering and heading back into Gualala to hit up one of the few dinner spots. After dinner I finished kicking Layton's butt at Mexican Train and then it was back into the hot tub and more reading before bed.
As you can see, we don't do all that much while vacationing in Sea Ranch. That's the reason why we go. We go to enjoy each other's company, to catch up on sleep and reading and relaxation. I love getting away from life, phones, computers, the Internet, etc and just spending one on one time laughing and dreaming with my husband. I always come back feeling refreshed and ready to go right back. Someday we'll own a house in Sea Ranch.
Last weekend's blessing: Spending one on one time with Layton enjoying each other's company.
