Summer of 2010

So summer has come and it's already on it's way out. It has been a busy summer to say the least, hence my lack in blog updates.

Firstly, work had been VERY busy. I have been travelling almost every week, mostly to the Bay Area, and the occasional flight to L.A and Seattle.
It's all good though, and I'm enjoying the field of Sustainability, helping our customer make a difference to the environment.

We've also done a ton of different things this summer. Chris and I made a trip to Vail, which is AMAZING in summer. Hiking on the ski-slopes, drinking proseco in the village and loving all the summer activities.

We also went camping with Art and Melissa for Art's birthday in Wyoming- such fun.

Chris's folks, Pam and Gaston came to visit us. It is so good to see them, after such a long time, and we have had a great time with them.
Showing them around Colorado, Pikes Peak, Mt Evans, Denver Downtown, Veil and Beaver Creek, played some golf at Racoon Creek and Arrow Head. Colorado is a stunning place in Summer.

Pam and Gaston also got to take a trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. We just spent a week with them in San Francisco, where I had to work, but Chris played tour guide and showed them all the sights and sounds of California - even a drive up to Montery and Pebble Beach! Any golfers dream.

We stayed at a stunning place, in Half Moon Bay, on a golf course, near the beach. A walk to the beach, next to the golf course and a sundowner drink at the Ritz, watching the waves was all part of the experience.

We have also had a few dinners, braai's and parties in our stunning garden. Warm balmy evening are perfect for good food, friends and drinks on the patio.

So as summer draws to a close, a chill fills the air, and fall is on it's way! Pam and Gaston's visit is also drawing to an end, another week in Denver and then off to Orlando Florida, to see Disney World.

Chris had planted a veggie garden this year, and did a wonderful job at fostering some great produce. Baby tomatoes, beets, carrots and herbs - Great job babe!

So fall and winter bring on new things to do and look forward to. Halloween, changing of the Aspens and .........skiing!
