We were going to go to the Yosemite and the Redwoods, Monterey, The Grand Canyon, Solvang, and some nifty other places too! WE WERE TOTALLY going to do it because who knows when we will get another chance.
Well.......... then life happened as it usually does and D decided to take a summer class to make sure he's on track as well as extern this summer (interning for school credits). So by the time all that was done, it left us with 2 weeks of summer vacation bliss.
So here's what we did instead:
We spent to days in the tiny historic mining town of Julian in San Diego.
To save money, we drove the 2 hours there and back each day and then spent our money on the fun stuff!
We went on a mini hike at Cuyamaca Lake
"Mined for Gems" at a Gem Sluice
Panned for "Gold"
(look out for PART 2...as soon as I find my camera!)
You can bet that I have some CRAFTivities to follow this!
