I'm Back... Kinda

"Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter."

-Carol Bishop Hipps

I am back from Nevada. It was a wonderful getaway for Alan and I. We took pictures, and played a bit in the casino, and just enjoyed each other's company. Two days is about the right sized trip for us I think. I was ready to get back to my own little world when it was time to leave, sleeping in my own bed last night was wonderful too. Ok, so the big getaway is over, but Alan is still on vacation for another 2 weeks, so I will be in and out of town. I will keep you posted.

Today we are off to Half Moon Bay, to enjoy our Family Day, which is our very own made up holiday, then we are going down HWY1 south toward Santa Cruz. Could some roller coasters be in my future? You bet! I loves me a good roller coaster! You just never know with me... do you? Stay tuned to watch the adventure of, Carly and Alan's Vacation 2008, unfold!

Have a great time on that Roller Coaster for me, i'm not allowed on them anymore! I am super duper glad you're able to enjoy this lovely time of the year, it's my favorite too.

Happy Vacation. I'm heading out to Charlotte, NC next weekend and Virginia Beach, VA the following so I too am looking forward to some brisk weather and gorgeous countryside!

I don't take the kinda photographs you do so we'll leave that task to you, you certainly do have an artists eye!
