Girls' Weekend

My girl and I hit the road for 3 nights away, 2 weekends ago already now. It was her birthday gift to spend a weekend with me. We had a great time together shopping, walking on the beach, eating out, shopping, and did I say shopping? We were definitely shopped out by the end and didn't buy a tonne of stuff, but were looking for a dress for the big day- grade 9 grad...

We took a morning walk everyday just down the hill from our B&B (motel Moyano- thank you guys!!!) The amenities were fabulous! Free internet, free rent, appliances, hot showers!!

Erin was quite set that we HAD to flatten a penny on the tracks. It was something she had never done, and so we had to do it. We waited awhile and finally decided to leave the pennies and come back later. We could only find one later on, but it was flat, and NO we didn't derail any trains, it's all urban legend.

The flowers were amazing and we saw an air craft carrier come into the harbor one morning too. Pretty cool! We came home with lots of cheap Costco cheese (you wouldn't believe the price difference) and yummy Trader Joe's treats.

What a great weekend away with an amazing girl.
