The Surprise

 Our kids gave us an amazing  gift to celebrate our 35th anniversary a little early. After a fun picnic lunch at the beach with everyone, they sent us on our way to the Blue Lantern Inn in Dana Point, California.


 This was the view from our patio.  It was the most beautiful of days.  It had been overcast all week and that day the sun came out!


 The flowers in the area were breathtaking.


In the afternoon,  hors d'oeuvres were served and we sat on the porch at a table looking over the harbor.


Then it was time to head to Crystal Cove where our kids treated us to dinner at the Beachcomber. You park in a lot across the coast highway, walk down a long path and through a tunnel to emerge into an old beach community which is now a state park.  The restaurant is located there.

Our dinners were delicious!


 
Watching the sunset to the sound of the waves was relaxing and coffee and a generous portion of Beignets was a great end to a wonderful evening.  We even met a man who had just visited his grandmother who lives in our town, not far from our home! It's a small world.

We did not NEED these, but they were delicious!  Vanilla ice cream and a fudge sauce accompanied the hot beignets. 

We are so greatful to our children for this wonderful, restful memory.  We are especially thankful for our daughter-in-law who I'm SURE spearheaded the event.  It was a time we will always treasure.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalm 127:3
