Well, believe it or not I've been back from Cali for a week and I'm just now popping in to say hello. In between getting back in the groove, going to the grocery store, meeting up with friends, anxiously awaiting the purchases that I UPS'd home (suitcase included) and doing laundry, well, I've been less than motivated to make a blog post.
I thought it would be fun, though, to give you some of the pictures of the trip in the order that they happened. I took so many that I think it would be tedious to continue on with that style, but for this post that's the plan.
Here is a shot of how lightly I packed. (sorry, the plastic bags are not supposed to be in this shot) In addition to the small suitcase, I stuck the books and such in my handbag/tote and I was ready.
The flight from Roanoke to Atlanta is only about an hour, so afterwards, I kept my self amused taking photos of the airport and such...
Here is a shot of the departure board for my flight. Glad I wasn't headed any where on Alaska Air. I missed the storm that hit this airport in Atlanta by a matter of hours. Gulp.
The flight to San Diego was delightful. I had a wonderful seat mate by the name of Carl Smith. We talked and talked and really hit it off. We had so much in common that we really enjoyed each others company. He was headed to San Diego to speak at some sort of a seminar/meeting and said that he was going to incorporate parts of our conversation into his speech. I'm still so surprised when I make an impact on anyone. He was a really interesting guy.
Had I not had such an endearing seat mate, I would have take shots of the food, but photos of airport food are a dime a dozen, making a new friend is a one time event.
After I landed, I disembarked in the incorrect area of the airport, not knowing that the building had been remodeled in the last year. Sisters and their driver Mark finally found me and we were on our way.
After we got to Peri and Peg's I was raring to go. Not tired at all, so Peri and I hopped into her new ride and off we went...
Well, that's all for today. There will be more to come. We are supposed to have a really big snow on Wednesday, so hopefully if the cable doesn't go out, I'll have plenty of "down" time to make another post. I really want to post more often, I'm just such a slug sometimes.
Take care, friends and enjoy your life, whatever it is. Love ya!
