Home Sweet Home….We are back in Breese and it feels good. This post will be about the rest of the trip and going back to a few places that I mentioned before (I did not have those photos when I posted last)
I know you have seen my Laguna Beach photos…but have to show 2 more. Have I mention how much I love Laguna 😉
As I mentioned before, we went to San Diego first. Mark visited a naval ship and Grace and I headed for Old Towne. Old Town San Diego is considered the “birthplace” of California. San Diego is the site of the first permanent Spanish settlement in California. We felt like we were in Mexico 🙂 They had the best plants there…Here are a few photos from there.
I can check Zip Lining OFF my bucket list. I am not sure it was on there in the first place….but now it is and it is checked off! I have to be honest, I was scared. I did not think I would fall, I felt safe…we were just really high and it is really hard to LEAN FORWARD AND STEP OFF INTO NOTHING! The whole experience took 2 hours, which was really long. 5 separate zip lines dropping from 600 feet to 60 feet above sea level with one run that is 1,100 lineal feet long all on it’s own! If I can do it…anyone can do it!!
That was the process each time. I never screamed, I believe I did not breath. I did not want to talk to anyone between them…I was in a zone and needed to think about the next one. The guide talked forever between zips about buffalo, foxes and eagles. The 3rd zip one of the girls on the trip said “Boy, he talks a lot”. I said ” yes he does. I have seen a fox, we have eagles in our county and a buffalo farm near by…let’s go!” The group was so good…they would cheer me on.
