ECF - Desktop Edition

This morning I read over at Carole's that Kat wants to know what our desktop wallpaper is. What a great thing to share for Eye Candy Friday!

This picture was taken during a family vacation in California 2 years ago. We spent a fabulous week traveling from San Francisco to Carlsbad. Along the way we enjoyed the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, Carmel, Monterey, Disneyland, The Madonna Inn, the Rose Parade and Legoland among other sights. It was all fabulous! This is the view we enjoyed on the way out to see San Simeon. It was an overcast day but I loved the drama that the weather lent to the scenery. Now I am reminded of that trip every time I sit down to my computer at home. I look at the green hills and the Pacific shimmering in the distance and smile.

To the Sea

This next picture was taken during the same trip and it graced my screen at my former office. I think of it as girls on the half shell. It was taken at the Monterey Aquarium. As you can see, it was one of those rare occasions that my girls looked like they loved each other. Awwww!
Girls on the half shell

Thanks to Carole & Kat for the inspiration for today's post. Next week I'll be able to show you the Un-Candy Cane Scarf because I finished it tonight. I just have to weave in the ends and then hope that the weather allows for decent photos before I put it in the mail.

Great pictures! Like Carole says, the first one is so beautiful, it doesn't look real.

The girls on the half shell are too cute :)

The hills look so velvety -– gorgeous! And "girls on the half shell" made me think of Botticelli's Birth of Venus http://www.hegel-system.de/de/gif/botticelli-venus.jpg.

Thanks for playing along!
