Subject: California Coast
Greetings Ziners,

I have gone to Europe every year for the last 6 years during May. This year, plans did not work out and I have to admit I am having trouble gearing up for our trip to California next week. My friends laugh at me, when they pick up on my lack of enthusiasm! We fly into San Franciso..staying for two days, then overnight in Monterey, on to San Simeon overnight, with the last 7 days in a timeshare in Ventura, flying out of LAX. Any tips on sites, food (love seafood and Italian) great drives etc. I know that we are short on time in SF, but it was all I could manage to take off from work. I'm not looking for museums, basically just beautifuls sights, nice walks, and, of course, mu husband really wants to see some redwood trees! Any special tips to get me more motivated for this trip?

Thanks! Nancy
