Sept.17th2011
Went on vacation with my Husband, first ever
vacation for me..
We travled by car from Coeur d' Alene Id. to Madera Ca.

went through Oregon Hood river area, its so beautiful, stop'ed at Mamoth Falls and took photos, I love water falls. we continued on toCresent city Cal. where I got to see the ocean and play in it for a coupple hours, and see the seals on the docks, wached the tide come in, waves crashing on the rocks, it's breath taking and so beautiful and powerful the waves are, I loved it..

Then we spent the day in awe looking at the Readwoods, their such huge trees, the forest floor is covered with ferns and thing's it looks like a picture from a fairytail book of the enchanted forest. we enjoyed it a lot,
Then we left the coast and the readwoods and went to Madesto Ca, stopped and visted John's sister and her husband, we enjoyed that a lot, had'nt seen them in 5 yrs.spent the night there, and headed to Yurica Ca, his home town where he was born. left there and went to Madera Ca. where he grew up in the country there on a big ranch, went to look at the old Del Rio Ranch , where he grew up and worked the ranch as a kid, was not much left of the Ranch, 40+ years has changed alot. we went and visted his other siblings for 3 days, some of them was my first time meeting them, Had a great time,I was warmly welcomed by all. we went and seen the sights and where they grew up, very intresting and good quality family time. Took our photo at the center of California.
That was so cool standing at the excact center of Ca.
The next day we all went and visted Yosemity National Park.
Wow! that is beautiful, went to most of the site's there, what a wonderful day,

After seeing the site's we went back to sis's house and had a family BBQ, and visted.
What a wondwrful vacation spending the week with my Husband, it was every thing I always dreamed a vacation should be,fun and relaxing, and full of beautiful memories that I will cherrish a life time.

Just had to share my vacation memories with you..
enjoy.

    Awesome vacation!!! I would love to go see the redwoods and the Pacific Ocean. I have seen the Atlantic because it is near me but I would love to go to California!

    I am glad that you had a good time and got to visit with family and see where your hubby grew up. The pictures were beautiful!! I loved the one where you all are holding hands in front of the tree! and the one of you in the ocean! And you look so pretty in all of them. Arent you glad you lost the weight and feel better so you could enjoy all the stuff you all did?

    Beautiful pictures and sounds like a wonderful time.

    Love those redwoods. When I had a car, I regularly drove up to Big Basin to hike - the massive trees just put things into perspective.
