Aaaah the Mamas and Papas - don't you just love em?
But I digress, dear readers, as the main aim of this post is to announce that California Dreaming is about to become a reality for the J and P family. Yes, folks, we're off on our hols. To California! How exciting is that!
Our first stop will be San Francisco and I'm sooooo excited as I intend to visit a good few thrift and goodwill stores while I'm there. Just look at these fine examples of thrift store interiors:
Racks and shelves and aisle of STUFF. Oh I can't wait. Mr J and P is muttering something which sounds like "I am not flying all the way to San Francisco just to go charity shopping." Let's ignore him shall we, dear readers?
From San Francisco, we go to Yosemite Valley and then southwards to places like the Joshua Tree National Park, Pallisade Glacier, Mohave Desert. From the interior, we head to the coast and travel back north to San Fran.
Hope we don't see these critters on our travel in the wilds of California:
a black bear.
a mountain lion (apparently, more than half of California is mountain lion habitat - lawks a lordy!).
Mr J and P is insisting we visit Death Valley. Frankly, I'm not keen, as, according to the guide book, it is the hottest place on earth (yikes...)! Mr J and P is now trying to tell me that Death Valley is one big charity shop - ha ha ha, now he's being just plain silly.
On that note, I'll love you and leave you. Hope you have a great summer, dear readers. Missing you already.......
