I've been a bit quiet

Well, I have been a bit quiet on here and not visiting any blogs recently as Hugh and I have been away on our California road trip! There will be lots of photos to share, but here are just a couple to start off with.
Our first day in San Francisco - quite a breeze blowing, and we didn't realise quite how strong the sun was - Hugh ended up with a very burnt nose!

In Mariposa Grove at Yosemite - the redwoods were absolutely amazing. We walked for about 4 miles in about 110F heat! Pretty exhausting, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Saw a chipmunk and a deer, so that was great too!
Love this photo - taken on the Tioga Pass in Yosemite. What you can't tell though is that there were thousands of mosquitos and I got bitten to pieces! However, the views were stunning. I have soooo many photos to share with you. I could go on for hours! The scrapbooking is going to take me a year at least lol!

Anyway, once I have got over my jet lag I will be popping over to your blogs and catching up with your news. Thanks for being patient and I hope the couple of posts I set up to publish whilst I was away kept you going!

So neat that you got to Yosemite - it is really quite something isn't it? As for San Francisco - great that you actually got to see the bridge and it wasn't hidden in fog. :) Looking forward to seeing more.
