West Coast Adventure {Day 12}

Day 12 – Salt Lake City, UT On Tuesday morning, we got out of bed early to say goodbye to Las Vegas and all its craziness. Until next time.

West Coast Adventure {Day 11}

Day 11 – Las Vegas, NV Day 11 started with slowly getting out of bed and getting down to the nearest Starbucks for coffee and a pastry. Merry was still in bed, so the husband and I brought our coffees back up to the room to sip them while we watched TV before he had… [Read More]

West Coast Adventure {Day 10}

Day 10 – Las Vegas, NV Day 10 was a full day to stay and play in Vegas. After all the driving we’d been doing, it was much needed. We even got to sleep in a little, hooray! I like to call this picture, “Waking up in Vegas.” After rolling ourselves out of bed, Starbucks… [Read More]

West Coast Adventure {Day 7}

Day 7 – Palm Springs, CA Day 7 was going to start with driving out to the middle of nowhere (in the desert) to see Salvation Mountain, but I had not been a fan of driving in the desert thus far, plus I wanted as much time in Palm Springs as possible. Salvation Mountain, I… [Read More]

West Coast Adventure {Day 5}

Day 5 – San Francisco, CA | Davenport, CA | Salinas, CA The morning of day 5 we were exhausted… from all the wine the day before, I’m sure. We still managed to roll ourselves out of bed and have breakfast at our hotel before we said “au revoir” to wine country. It was a… [Read More]

West Coast Adventure {Day 4}

Day 4 – Napa, CA Day 4 of our west coast adventure was wine tour day. All wine, all day. Thankfully we got to sleep in a little bit so we were perfectly rested for it. Coffee in bed instead of on the road? Yes please! We booked our Napa Valley wine tour through Platypus Tours, and I highly… [Read More]
