California Dreaming

So if you are a follower of mine on Twitter you might have noticed I was rather quiet the past two weeks. The reason…a fortnight in sunny California! A week in Disneyland Anaheim as part of my job and then a week’s holiday to soak up some sunshine and have a bit of a break before returning to work again.

So what did I get up to? Well, it’d be rude not to show some holiday snaps…not too many though!

We drove from Anaheim to Palm Springs where we stayed a few nights.


Using Palm Springs as our base we visited the Joshua Tree National Park…



And took a tram ride up 10,000ft to a snowy mountain top…


Then, we hit the road again heading towards San Diego where we enjoyed a day at the world famous San Diego, a place I’ve wanted to visit since I can remember.



And we also went out on a boat whale watching to catch the migrating pacific gray whales (note, NEVER go inside the boat, it WILL make you seasick!)


But the highlight has to be seeing the ladies below in the flesh…please excuse me looking ultra dorky in my glasses…but just look what I am standing in front of :D


All in all a great trip…but now it’s back to work. Have a few things to look forward to though. Going to learn to knit next week at The Make Lounge and also going to see the Calendar Girls on tour with my mum. Plus, I have just booked myself onto a 5 week silversmithing course in April which I am very excited about!!

That’s all folks, hope you like my pics
