Christmas Getaway

Merry it was too..PJ surprised me with a trip to Big Sur for a few days of peace and quiet from the crazy busy life here in San Diego recently. I arrived at the airport at 6am Sunday morning with no idea where i was going..we flew up to San Francisco then onto Monterey for some sea-life action at Monterey Aquarium.
the greatest sea horse ever..very sneaky disguise. 
after all the sea life action we braved the storm and headed to Fisherman's Wharf for some cocktails and  clam chowder on the ocean
then wrapped up dry in our little green mini and started our scenic trip along the coast to Big Sur..
day two: with the rain and storm past and the sun shining...we headed out to do some hiking in the woods..
..and some eating and drinking by the fire before the big fat man came down the chimney!
Christmas morning and more surprises: a bottle of Don Perignon Champagne to start of the day...consumed with apple pie, in bed, at 8am. Heaven. 
after we recovered from our early morning drinking we headed out to do some hiking and sight seeing..
We had Christmas Dinner at Ventana Inn and Resort where we enjoyed an amazing 3 course meal and cocktails all night! Christmas was over too quickly, a great day and an amazing little get away in the wilderness!
Hope you all had a great christmas with loved ones too
