Lua de Mel

A view of Chi-Town from our architectural tour on the Chicago River. We came to Chicago after Yosemite for a wonderful reception given by Grant's parents. We spent a few days with the family and then went out on the town for our last day. Besides the tour, we walked the Mag Mile, saw Oprah's former apartment building, strolled Navy Pier, did some window shopping, and ended the day with a delicious meal in Greek Town. Opa!
John Muir said the clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness. Being in Yosemite, there is no question as to why it inspired such a theory. Here we are at the Penon Blanco Lookout B & B. It was great because we were the only ones staying there that week. We were in the John Muir Suite and it felt like home (I guess that's the point). We woke up every morning to a 3 course breakfast usually involving fresh fruit, homemade bread or muffins, and a main course. We also had a great view as you can see. We enjoyed a massage on the deck overlooking the lake, good baby back ribs, and beautiful sights including the Hetch Hetchy Trail.

Here we are eating the brunch of a lifetime at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. It is a resort on a golf course. Just a little word of advice if you ever decide to go there for a romantic (or golf) getaway, don't get your directions from Mapquest...

Here we are on the balcony of our room in San Diego.
