Big Bear Adventure

Since we had a long weekend, Mr. PCN and I decided to run away from civilization and the noisy neighbors with their chainsaws and leaf blowers and constantly barking dogs.

We rented a cabin in the mountains near Big Bear Lake, where it was blissfully quiet. It was too windy and choppy on the water for kayaking so we took a tandem bike around the lake. The air was crisp, the temp about 40 degrees, and this was our view.



After we had lunch, we came back to the cabin and built a fire. That’s a jacuzzi tub to the left.



The cabin also had a private deck, where I’d take my coffee in the morning…


…but it was cozier to stay inside by the fire and dig into my stack of books. I brought 3, was able to finish the top 2 (reviews to come), and have started the third.

    Getting away from it all was probably the way to go. I saw a couple of movies:

    The Age of Adeline – good story, beautifully shot and now I can honestly say I’m a fan of Blake Lively

    Welcome To Me – wince inducing film, but I hung in til the end. Still on the fence about whether or not I liked it.

    Didn’t drive much because gas prices disgusted me. I did yell at my neighbors dogs though.

    You and Mr PCN seemed to have done the right thing.

      I liked ADALINE, too! Hope to review it later this week.

    What a lovely getaway! My weekend was a little more melancholy, but full of wonderful memories.
