A Change of Plans

Plans can change in a minute and that is exactly what happened to Mr. Romance and I a few days ago. We were supposed to go to our son and daughter-in-law's home in Arizona for the weekend to celebrate our youngest granddaughter's birthday, but a case of the flu was making it's way through their home, so the day before we were to leave we changed our plans and went to Paso Robles. 
Lots of photos tell the story of the fun we had and the beautiful bits of nature that we saw.

Highlights:
giant California oak trees
long walks on the beach in Cambria
lots of birds posing for photos
we did some posing on the beach too
the elephant seal beach is something so special to see and hear
the weather was cold, foggy and brisk...perfect, actually
a brewery tour reminded me of the opening credits of the old show, LaVerne and Shirley
we took advantage of the beautiful yellow wall to take some photos of each other
sat next to a newly engaged couple and surprised them by helping to pay for their meal
wine tasting
olive oil tasting
20,000 Monarch Butterflies
Pismo Beach
fun times and silly faces

It was a perfect weekend. This was our first time to Paso Robles and I hope it won't be the last one.
We have rescheduled our visit to Arizona until next month.

Hope the AZ Stanleys are on the mend. Love the photos - you both look great. Were some shot with a DSLR? Can I edit a couple and post on my IG if I give you photo credit?
