Pink Saturday - Adventures of the Pink Umbrella

Pink Saturday - Beverly at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!

The pink umbrella made its introductions earlier this winter. This Pink Saturday it's going on an adventure.

Back in October we were sent a mysterious invitation. Friends who own a large property in Malibu invited us to test out their newly remodeled guest cabin - on the market for vacation rental, they wanted our opinion.

They sent some photos as a sneak preview.

It's a small cabin with a small kitchen, a living room and a separate bedroom. It's high on a hillside, and has a long screened-in porch with a view that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Point Dume, the Channel Isles and meadows, mountains and oak and olive groves. There are walking trails, gardens, terraces and places to watch the sunset or the moonrise.

Circumstances prevented us from scheduling the visit for several weeks, but finally this Pink Saturday, we made a date. The property is dog-friendly, so Jack will be joining us, and looks forward to meeting our hosts' dog Hoover.

We'll spend Pink Saturday in a charming little cabin overlooking the ocean.

And wake up with scones for breakfast.

The fine weather shown in the photos won't be in attendance, though - rain is expected for Friday. So the Pink Umbrella is coming along for the trip.

I'll post about our stay when we come back on Sunday. Stop by again to see more.
