Honeymoon Three Meets Project 365...

I was getting really far behind on my Project 365 photos - but it turned out great because it allowed me to include extra photos from honeymoon three in my book! I took 560 photos on the trip, and narrowed it down to 28 (three from each day) (almost) and now I am back up to date! So, here we go with my Project 365 photos from Honeymoon three...

Thursday October 8: Michael waits for our rental car at the Orange County Airport...and he's such a gentleman to carry my bags to our hotel room...
It was so wonderful to see Mom and Elmer again!...

Friday, October 9: We got to go to our favorite vegan restaurant - The Veggie Grill!

Me and my beautiful mother...

My sister Renee took us to a funky cool vegan restaurant called "Pure Luck" in Hollywood - it was YUMMY!...

the area was full of awesome urban art..It was wonderful to see Renee and her sweet cat Lily again!...

Sunday, October 11: The most awesome vegan breakfast ever in the history of the world! From another cool restaurant called "Flore" that Renee took us to. There we also got to see niece Liz...
Our plush hotel room at the Laguna Cliffs Resort at Dana Point...
a walk along the beach at Dana Point - I loved how Michael's outfit goes with the scenery...

Monday, October 12: We arrived in San Diego and took a walk at Mission Beach...
such a beautiful place...
and relaxed on the balcony of our room overlooking Mission Bay...
Tuesday, October 13: We spent our anniversary at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. I made friends with this beautiful duck. Can you believe how gorgeous he is?!!! He was sweet too.
Now - THIS WAS THE MOST EXCITING THING EVER!!!!! A highlight I will never forget! We took a photo safari and got to hand-feed baby giraffe! They were HUGE, Beautiful, and SO GENTLE! What a thrill!


Wednesday, October 14: We spent the day at the San Diego Zoo. I made a friend in Bucky the goat. He loved hugs!
this beautiful little guy was in the hummingbird aviary - isn't he gorgeous?!!!
I loved this quote on the wall at the aviary...

Thursday, October 15: A gorgeous sculpture at Balboa Park. It was made of marbles!
the artist's village at Balboa was so quaint and colorful - all little cottages, each one with an artist selling their wares...
we were enthralled by this tree at the park - such interesting bark, so huge and the roots were amazing!...

Friday, October 16: Before we left San Diego, we took a ride on a bicycle built for two...
We rode over to see Mission Beach one more time. It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day...

Our last hotel room was especially beautiful. it reminded me of an old castle...

Saturday, October 17: On our way back home again...

Sunday, October 18: Back home again - Willie takes a nap and all is back to normal...


So that was Honeymoon Three in a nutshell! We had an amazing time, and I am filled with gratitude for being able to do this each year. As we savor the memories, we are starting to think about where to go for honeymoon four.............

I hope you have a terrific Tuesday! I will be back tomorrow with another update. Thanks so much for stopping by!
