It has been a great day filled with gorgeous views of mountains and ocean. We left early this morning and arrived in Santa Maria just before noon. Even the Los Angeles traffic co-operated with our plans and was fairly light.
We had an enjoyable drive north and are now set up in a beautiful camp site. But even when everything goes smoothly, the first day of camping can be tiring. I could not resist taking this photo of my husband, Martin and Annika relaxing after dinner.
It is lovely and cool in Santa Maria, but I hear it was very hot at home today. I hope our house sitter remembers to water my outdoor plants before going to bed. As you can tell, my thoughts are never very far from home.
