Day away with my ladies church group

We gathered on the bluff overlooking the ocean. The weather was clear, but it was windy, very windy up there. We were each given a bag a goodies, with a small journal, some scriptures printed on two sheets. Some note cards, a pen for writing, and a bottle of water and some candy.
After everyone was settled we were each asked to share our most memorable beach experience, just so we would get to know each other better. Mine was about nearly drowning at Doheny Beach when I was about 13.
Next we drove across Hwy 1, to a lovely restaurant named Moonstone Gardens. We were served a yummy lunch, and then strolled around the gardens for a bit, and then we had quiet time with the Lord. We each shared our experience with prayer, and what we recieved, then it was time to go.
My friend Chris and I went into the town of Cambria and visited some shops then we drove home.
It was a wonderful day away.

Hey Beth, I was in Cambria on our way home from Arizona. I insisted we stop there. We had a delightful breakfast at a resort and then watched the huge elephant seals. You are so lucky to live so close to the ocean. What a wonderful day you had. Sharon PS Iwoke to high winds and a snow storm, got stuck in the driveway and DH had to hook the car up to the tractor and tow me up. woohoo what a day. :)
