As Sunday has always been my Dearly Beloveds and my "date day" I thought the ornament I'm using for this sunday would be most appropriate. It is the ornament we bought when we got married in Yosemite National Park. It has a picture of Half Dome hand painted on it. It was one of the few items one could purchase during the time of year we were there. We were there during the lull in the masses of people that go there. The gift shops were nearly empty as was the park. We felt that we had the park to ourselves most of the time. Especially when we were hiking and birding in the not so used portions of the park.
We stayed in the park at a B&B called The Peregrine. It was so romantic. It had a fireplace in our room... One night that we were there Bailey, the Mastiff that lived there, started barking his head off. There was a bear on the balcony off the dining room. The bear took off not wanting to tangle with the dog that probably looked like a bear to it only he definitely didn't sound like a bear... We also had our own private balcony overlooking the side of the mountain that the B&B was perched on. We often buy ornaments on our trips. Sorry I dragged you down memory lane with me. Did I mention that this trip was so romantic???
