........oh the places you'll go.........

"Most of my treasured memories of travel are recollections of sitting."

–- Robert Thomas Allen

and sit we did!

we sat to enjoy the view.. the gorgeous sunsets..

we sat on warm, sandy beaches...

we sat on handmade chairs on the river itself..

we sat on fences that overlooked the majestic ocean..

we sat on huge boulders to see just how tiny we really are..

we sat on a pier and listened to the waves crashing underneath..

we sat on a stone wall and kissed at Lover's Point..

we sat on our bikes as they carried us all around the beautiful sights..

we sat on our chairs at an amazing italian restaurant..

we sat and played with Tippy..

we sat under palm trees one nite..

and huge redwoods the next..

we sat and listened to a pack of coyotes..

yep.. some of my treasured memories of travel.. are recollections of sitting :)

Here are some pictures from our travels..i hope you enjoy :)
