My Top Ten picks of MM #117

Hi Everybody! How was your Easter? I hope it was a blessed one!

This year for Easter, instead of going to our regular Calvary Chapel church, we went to the church we were married in.
This is Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, CA.  AKA "Big Calvary". It was a wonderful and very blessed time.
They had a new rock waterfall and three wooden crosses in the courtyard.
There was a beautiful Easter Lily garden planted at the foot of the crosses.

Afterward, we drove down to the beach and stopped in at the Sands Hotel.  The lobby always has a miniature photo gallery featuring different artists.

Do you like this picture made out of repurposed wet suits? Or I guess it's a wet suit quilt?

The stairway has this very cool giant seaweed wall paper.

Upstairs, the seating looks like you're at some one's beach house.

Then we headed down to the pier to take some more pictures and walk on the sand.

We always walk under the pier to get to the water, because it's nice and shady.  

And during the Summer, we sit under the pier when it's too hot at the beach. It's nice and cool!
As you can see, the weather was just beautiful.
