Hubby and I desperately needed a vacation. There has been illness, two total knee replacements for Hubby, missed celebrating my 65th and our 35th anniversary and an unexpected death. Knee surgery is a lot of work for both of us and it is isolating. And of course there is/was the COVID thing… And the almost complete evaporation of my business. We really needed a break!
A “real” vacation was not in the cards for a guy 6 weeks out of knee replacement surgery so we opted for a lovely but low-key visit to California’s mid-coast, specifically to the Seal Cove Inn at Moss Beach. The mid-coast is hard to get to and is not heavily populated. It has its own laid back vibe.
We stayed at a beautiful Bed and Breakfast recommended by my friend. Thank you Donna!
I loved the courtyard entrance:
They had to remove most of the furnishings due to COVID concerns but they sure did a great job of keeping it pleasant:
It was a little odd because there were no case goods in the room, our clothes stayed in the suitcase. No maid service or linens changed, all to protect us all.
Everyone, I mean everyone wore a mask there including runners and bicyclists.
Plants love it there – everything was so lush and happy! This was the view to the left of our patio:
I’ve never seen a crimson hydrangea, the color was deeper than the photo:
This is the most charming bus stop I’ve ever seen:
Even a guy fresh off a cane and 6 weeks out of knee surgery could take a short walk and discover this beauty:
Sadly enough, the beaches were closed and there were no seals. I envisioned spending a lot of time enjoying the tide pools. Next time…
We took a trip south to nearby Half Moon Bay, a charming small mid-coast town with shops and restaurants:
Our last evening there rewarded us with this sunset:
I couldn’t resist, two more gorgeous random coast shots:
I live in a beautiful state! I’ll post this to Nina-Marie’s Off the Wall Friday.
