i traded jewelry for a night's stay at treebones in big sur. it's such a fun place where you sleep in yurts (wood framed tents) that are stocked with very comfortable beds and wood floors. it's sort of like camping in luxury accomodations. perfect for me! steve got home from work and we headed up there last night. we arrived about 7pm and had dinner in the lodge (ribs-yum!) we went back to our room and read. we got a GREAT night's sleep, rolled out of bed and headed back to the lodge for make-your-own waffles. afterwards we hung out on the deck and took in the ocean. it was a short, but very nice getaway. now, back to work!
