When Jack retired, he was given a gift for us to fly in a glider plane over East San Diego Co and an overnight at Warner Hot Springs Resort. Here we are squished behind the pilot ready for take off.
It was exhilarating, soaring over Mt Palomar (one of the largest telescopes in the US). As a native Southern Californian, I had never visited this area. It's sparsely populated with ranches, retirees, and camps. Beautiful yet desert like.
Warner Ranch dates back to the 1800's as a stage coach stop and headquarters for Kit Carson and Fremont. Later it became a resort frequented by early movie stars such as Bing Crosby. The pools are feed by the hot springs where we enjoyed a leisurely soak.
The next day we visited the historic mining town of Julian. We enjoyed breakfast, walking the shops and a milk shake at this original soda fountain/drug store.
On the way home, we stopped at Quilt's Coop, Old Town Temecula. Here's what I bought on sale (Didn't NEED but couldn't pass up). 1 yard cuts were $5 and fat-quarters $1.50.
FINAL STAGE of Country Garden from Kaffe Fassett. I'm hoping I'm making the correct choice for the sashing to make the borders wider. The contrast is good but is it too light?
