Oh, yum!! That Carthay Circle meal was fabu. Sharon and I had some corn-something soup that was divine! And our chef brought me some freshly made gluten-free bread that I scarfed down. The only disappointment was that there were pretty much NO desserts I could eat. *sigh* Oh, well. I was so full of bread and roast pork, I don't think I had room anyway.
And World of Color?! It was as lovely and beautiful and cry-worthy as I've heard. I was sniffling from the get-go, but there was one sweepy, crescendoing musical section that had me stuffing my sleeve into my mouth to hold back the sobs.
I don't want to even think about the departures coming...
By the time we woke up this morning, Sharon had left for the airport . . . heck, she was probably in the air by then! Our numbers were dwindling . . .
We got ready and packed before heading up to the lounge for a bite of breakfast. After a quick breakfast, we said goodbye to our beautiful rooms and view and then loaded up the car. Eileen had an 11 a.m. flight, so our next stop was LAX. We said another sad goodbye which was made sadder by the fact that we didn’t know when we were seeing Eileen again . . . thank heavens for Facebook!
After lots of hugs, we hopped back in the car and Karen drove us to Hollywood where we were big time tourists for a couple of hours.
If you look hard, you can see the "Hollywood" sign in the background.
We finished up our tour with ice cream at the Disney Soda Shop. Some people have dessert after lunch, but we chose to do the opposite. Once back in the car, we headed north and enjoyed an afternoon of beautiful scenery and lots of laughter and chatting.
We made a few stops along the way . . . In ‘n Out Burger for lunch, Pismo Beach for taffy and finally Palo Alto for Keeder (Karen was keeping her boss’s dog for a few days).
We arrived at Karen and Zack’s house about 7 p.m. and settled in before Karen got us a pizza and plied me with expensive wine. The girls loved having two dogs to play with and, even better, to sleep with at night.
