The craziest thing is happening… you were all right even though I didn’t want to believe you… law school is getting really busy for Billy. The first 1.5 months felt like it was about the same workload that he had at BYU but not anymore, it’s starting to get crazy. He has to go to school earlier everyday, like 6:30 am, and come home later because they are piling on the homework and papers. This makes it so that when he does have some time off we have to jam pack a bunch of things that we have been wanting to do in one day. I will probably split our day into two posts because my eyeballs and fingers are far too tired to talk about all 400 pictures that I took yesterday.
We really wanted to go to Santa Cruz first and on the way there we drove through a huge forest.
We first stopped at the Mystery Spot where there is a hole in gravity. Don’t act like you don’t believe that kind of stuff is possible.
After that we went to the Natural Bridges State Beach and I almost melted because of the view.
Billy took a panaramic picture with his phone of me taking pictures.
I packed a lunch for us because I really wanted to save all of our money to spend on clam chowder and the ghiradelli factory so we had turkey sandwiches, apples, string cheese, pretzels, cheeze its and fruit by the foots. There is just something incredible about being out in nature. Yes, our lunch does resemble that of an elementary school student but I don’t ever want to change that.
I am convinced that we need to do all of our exploring on Mondays because we had the whole area to ourselves.
For once in the history of Hungry Runner Girl I have created a post with more pictures of scenery than food and I haven’t even mentioned the word ‘running’ until now.
We took the long way, about 70 miles, up to San Francisco because it goes along the coast and both the picture above and below were taken from the car as we were driving.
We also drove by a dozen of these pumpkin patches and I took a picture just for all of you pumpkin eating obsessed bloggers out there… you are welcome:)
Our next stop was the city. San Fran has taken over the spot for my number one favorite city and I may drag Billy with me here at least 5 times a month from now on. We found our absolute new favorite food and it will consume my thoughts until I get another one. It involves large amounts of crab and sourdough bread.
Today is an elliptical day followed by really exciting things like laundry and attempting to do the dishes that have piled up in the sink and there will be at least an episode or two of my latest Netflix obsessions.
