Weekend Getaway

Oatmeal and coffee on the hotels patio
We ran from San Bernadino Countie's heat wave the last few days.In Rancho Cucamonga it was in the 100s.So off we went to Ventura beaches.Breezy,beautiful and Autumn cool :) I don't usually post our getaways,Paul and I go so often on two day trips.This one I wanted to share.I don't know why, maybe because of the Autumn breeze and My weight loss.

When we go to the ocean,I love sitting on the balcony thinking about God and His mighty power and great works.In the morning He shows Me great and mighty wonders and gifts to Me,like dolphins in play and hunting. 

So relaxing and He won't leave His babies at home.He takes them where ever He can.

Who wears makeup on vacation?Not Me. 

Ventura pier.

Now I'm getting so brave.(My progression in My bariatric weight loss-OUCH-)Right after this shot We got up to walk to the end of the pier,My hat blew off without me knowing.Walking back from the end,I noticed a homeless man with My hat on.Of course, I hope He's enjoying it right now.
In a few Months I hope you won't recognize Me. Thank you Lord for a wonderful get away.....the breeze and dolphins and all.                 Love Denise

Sounds and looks like a lovely getaway, Denise.

Good luck with continued weight loss. I have a niece who had that same procedure and is very happy with the results.

Looks like a delightful time, Denise! Keep on trucking - we can't wait for the tranformation!

Oh sweet Denise....your getaway is an excursion so sweet, well-deserved and somewhere I WOULD LOVE TO GO! I had wanted my husband to take me to Carmel this summer, our honeymoon spot from 30 years ago. But with my resignation from full-time teaching, we had to change our plans!

The sea, its creatures and the breeze, all from God's work and us? All the more....you are in His hands of course, and your grateful heart is the most precious of all. YOU LOOK GREAT! You have lost already, right??? I hope each days allows you to be stronger and able to walk and enjoy the fun of walking. Be well sweet friend, Anita

Hi Denise, Your pics are wonderful and a wonderful way for me to start my week viewing the wonders of God's creations you share.
Your getaway sounds like a special time had by you and your hubby with your sweet little pooch too. What a cutie.
Best wishes for continued success on your weight loss. I admire your courage and determination.

What a special gift for the homeless man who found your hat and placed it on his head. I guess God figured he needed it more then you~~~
Thanks for stopping by dear one. So nice to see you. Have a great day and hopefully cooler temps. We are finally cooling down and it is a welcome change from 100 plus!

Hugs, Celestina Marie

Looks like you had a wonderful trip, so nice of you to let the homeless man keep your hat! Good luck on your weight loss, I'm working on that too. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

Hi Denise. What a lovely little break by the sea you had there with hubby. It looks lovely and good to see you in the photos. Wishing you continued good luck with the weight loss, and I am sure you will feel much better for losing the weight. I enjoyed looking at the photos today.

Hi Denise, You are an inspiration. You sound so happy and at peace, too. I am happy for you! I enjoyed seeing your vacation and your hubby and your dogs.

It is so wonderful to have a weekend getaway - the beach is such a relaxing place! I am also struck by the beauty and majesty of creation - makes me wonder and praise God. I congratulate you on your weight loss - working on that myself - long, slow road - but definitely worth it!
I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness

Thanks for visiting Ravenhill Cottage, Denise. And thank you for the kind comment and for following me. I really appreciate it!

What a beautiful spot you visited and I wish I could have joined you on that balcony! Oh, and those pups are pretty cute, too. :o)

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
