A Quick Getaway

We just celebrated our 15-year anniversary by returning to our honeymoon destination in San Luis Obispo. One of our friends had the kids overnight and my MIL had them the next day so we didn't have to rush home. The drive up the coast was gorgeous! I did the driving. This is our new agreement, that I do the driving. He would drive and we both got stressed out. Now I drive and it's find. (As long as he doesn't try to "help" me!) We had a very memorable and enjoyable overnight trip.

In no particular order, these are some highlights of our 15-year anniversary getaway last week. 
His and hers coffee we got at Bello Mundo, a coffeehouse in SLO. There was a friendly atmosphere and the coffee was amazing! We sat next to the big window in front and watched people walking by for about an hour. A very pleasant experience!
I scored a stack of like-new knitting books for $1 each at a hospice thrift store. I wonder if they were donated from someone who supports hospice or were leftover from a knitter who passed away under the care of hospice. Either way, I was happy to have them and will definitely put them to good use!
Apple Farm is the B&B we stayed at for our honeymoon 15 years ago and returned to this year for our anniversary. If you are looking for a place to stay in the SLO area, this is the way to go! The rooms are cute and comfortable. We had a private hot tub on our patio outside and it was heaven! We looked at the stars and watched the moonrise while relaxing, bliss!
On the way home, we stopped at a lovely beach and explored some tide pools and rocks. I made  DH climb up a big rock with me and take some pictures. Definitely a good way to close out our trip!
