Deb & Carrie Visit plus Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt

Today I had the great good fortune to spend the day with Deb of the Paper Turtle blog and her daughter Carrie from Rosalind Revival.  
We started the day with a stop by a decorated mailbox, featuring turtles of course!  
We visited my studio and a very fun shop called "Half to Have It," which has all manners of fun and funky stuff.
After a yummy lunch, we strolled around on Main Street and visited a nursery. Carrie wanted to see the ocean, and Deb wanted to take a picture of a forest, so we headed over to the "Enchanted Forest" above the Fitzegerald Marine Reserve in Moss Beach, Ca.
Deb and Carrie are a very special mother-daughter pair, and I loved spending the day with them! They have such a strong, loving and easy bond between them:
And, believe it or not, as we were stepping out of the car at the parking lot for the Marine Reserve, Deb turned to me and said "Oh my gosh, Rinda, look!  It's a unicycle!"
We about fell over each other grabbing our cameras and going to ask this nice gentlemen from Cambridge, England if we could take his picture.  How's that for an unbelievable ending to a truly fantastic day?!?

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

:o)!!! Hooray! You posted photos of our awesome day. These are great photos - Carrie and I had such a fun day hanging out with you and touring your town. I'm still smiling. Fun! Fun! FUN!!! You got some great shots. I love the one of my girl C and me on the beach, as well as the fun unicycle guy. Haha! It makes me laugh every time I think about it.

We'll be driving home tomorrow and one of the first things I plan to do is upload my photos from this amazing road trip. Can't wait to see what I got, and also to post the few scavenger hunt pix I took along the way.

Hooray for meeting blog friends! :o)!!!

Aren't they just the sweetest pair? :) So glad you had a great time!

I'm guessing we're not going to manage a meet ourselves now, sadly, but do let me know if there's any way we can get together before we have to head back to the UK xx
