|Me collecting sea glass on McAbee Beach|
Ok, so we weren't really under the boardwalk. I don't think Monterey even has a boardwalk. But we were definitely down by the sea for a lovely little get away. The sea was beautiful and crystal clear! And nearly freezing. Well, the marine biologist said it was about 56F. Too close to freezing for my taste. The air was much warmer though. It was in the mid 60's and beautiful! Just a nice breeze blowing. Sun was shining with little bits of clouds.
We stayed at the Spindrift Inn which is my favorite place to stay in Monterey. You can get a view of Cannery Row or the Ocean. Each room has it's own fireplace. King sized beds. Breakfast brought to your room each morning. Wonderful window seats to take in the view, or to read in...or nap in as I did one day. The best thing is that it's only about a block away from the aquarium.

Over all it was a great get away. Lots of delicious food and the downtime that was sorely needed. I took some stitching with me, but barely put in 50 stitches. I did read about 30% of my current book. What am I reading you ask. I might be too embarrassed to say. Let's just blame it on Felicia Day. She's been talking about "vaginal fantasy" books. Not as bad as it sounds. It's fantasy books with female leads. So I have been reading "Storm Born" by Richelle Mead. I wanted to see what this "vaginal fantasy" thing was all about. I can say that fantasy is not my first pick for book genres..which is weird since I love fantasy movies, art, etc. I am looking forward to finishing though, so I can start the next book on my Kindle line-up.

Ok, enough for now. I'll have more crafting stuff to post later. I have actually been working on my April goals! There's even a 50/50 chance I might finish all of them!
