Default We shall return

Hi folks,

Liz and I are off to a 4 day vacation in Dana Point, California.

There will be lots of posts for us to catch up on when we get back, but we will return in a week.

BUMP !!

We had a great time !!

What a gorgeous place. I (Phil) used to live in LA and San Diego so I was familiar with the area back in the early 80's but it has grown alot since then.

We created a few photo galleries in the personal photo gallery section of CM.

Hi Phil & Liz,

Welcome back to Texas. Enjoyed your pics of Dana Point. Several years ago, we stayed a week at the Marriott Laguna Nigel in Dana Point and loved it. The hotel was at the top of a cliff, and the view of the Pacific from our balcony was so beautiful. I think we might have been there in February, and flowers were in bloom everywhere...just gorgeous. We enjoyed a whale-watching tour on our visit. By any chance did you get to take the ferry ride over to Catalina Island? I had that excursion planned, but it was canceled because of fog. Someday, I still want to go to Catalina Island. I know you guys had a great time. Dana Point is one of my favorite places in the US. Again, welcome back.

Sherrie

Great pictures, and wow, what a touch of luxury in Paradise! The white flowers, look like phlox to me, wish I was there to see them in person!

We saw the place you were at from the beach !! There is a new home being built on the cliff very near the Marriott.

When we walked around the harbor we saw the Catalina boat. We noted the prices from them vs the price the St Regis wanted !! If we had planned our day better we would have gone but we didn't have a full day to do the island.

We did go on the Dolphin/whale watching tour. Only saw dolphins of course...it is past high season for whales so the odds were against us. We did run into a pod of about 300 dolphins! I had the video camera rolling for the whole thing.

No, they're not phlox...I looked phlox up and they appear to be purple. These were white all the time. I will find out what they were, along with the other flower in our pic I want to grow !
