Monday.  Also President’s Day.  And I’m pretty sure I’m the only person in the world that is working today.  Ha!  Anyone taking advantage of the awesome online sales today?  I pulled the trigger on a couple of items I’ve been eyeing.

You guys, this weekend was so good.  I got to slip away to the coast.  Celebrate one of my besties turning the BIG 4-0.

Now if only I could be back on that trail staring at the ocean right now.  That would be pretty great!

 

Intentions for the week:

  • Make a pretty spring table setting(coming to the blog this week)
  • Bay requested chicken teriyaki.  Thinking of making it into a casserole? – (coming to the blog this week)
  • Sale 10 items from my closet.  Running out of hangers!! – (FAILED)
  • Hang out with my nephews ♥
  • Celebrate Nidia’s Birthday with the girls (always a good time) 
  • Research a mother + daughter New York trip
  • Workout Mon – Fri – (almost, skipped Friday to clean the house) 
  • Ride bikes – (too damn cold brrrr)

 

Last weeks Intentions : {weekend notes}

 

And how about some weekend highlights…..

 

Picking up my girl as a “car rider” on Friday was just as much a treat to me as it was for her.  I can’t remember the last time I waited in the pick-up line.  And I got a couple more smiles + squeezes before she left for her Dad’s house for the weekend.

Spontaneous Friday afternoon trips to the coast are always a good idea!

Waking up at Jenner Inn was a treat

IMG_9154

We were lucky to grab one of their last rooms

And this view from our front door

IMG_9138

Jenner Inn is a bunch of cottages right on HWY 1 overlooking the Russian River.  About 10 miles north of Bodega Bay.  Just far enough.

Other than the birds, it was dead silent and so crazy relaxing.

IMG_9144

Beautiful walkways

I highly reccomend checking this place out.  I can’t wait to go back.

IMG_9146

Up early to explore.

Surprise plan to hike the Kortum Trail.  This has been on my bucket list for a few years now ♥

You know when your driving up HWY 1 and you see all the trails that wind along the coastline?  That’s it.  I always thought, wow I bet it’s beautiful.

IMG_9239

Just a mile south of Jenner you hit Goat Rock/Blind Beach.

More beautiful than I ever imagined.

IMG_9240

Four miles of trails that look just like this.

Blind Beach

When you’re out exploring by 8am, you get the beach ALL to yourself.

Nothing more peacful.

The water looks like glitter!

 

Blind beach is divided by a parking lot.  It’s crazy because the south side of the beach is a beautiful sandy beach.  The northern side of the beach reminds me of glass beach.  Full of colorful rocks.

And old tractor looking equipment….

Mimosas + the ocean.

I could have sat right here all day long.

Pit stop at the Blue Heron for a River Water.

Reminded me of last Memorial Day when Jessie + Brian + I rode our bikes from Casini Ranch to sit at this watering hole.

Checking out Guerneville, CA

Crab sandwich on a homemade biscuit at Boon Eat + Drink was killer!

Found another cool trail outside Guerneville that went down to the river.

IMG_9218

Korbel Champage Cellars

Our your way out of Guerneville, you’ll spot Korbel.  STOP!  The winery is gorgeous!  Complimentary tastings don’t hurt either.

And did you know they made a killer chardonnay?  King’s Ransom.  Very good!
