Needless to say, there were a few travel hiccups along the way to LA, and the final ironic twist was that our late arrival guaranteed us only a MINIVAN as our rental car. I know, I know. But I was too tired to argue.
We arrived at our little vacation home around 4 AM East Coast time and fell into bed, exhausted. Saturday we drove down the Pacific Coast Highway (highway 1) through Malibu, taking pictures all the way. Unfortunately Erin has all those pictures because my batteries were dead 😦
BUT my pictures pick up when we arrive at the Farmer’s Market in LA. Here is the stay in SoCal…Saturday (LA), Sunday (church and friends), Monday (more friends).
The obligatory slideshow…
I am ashamed to say that I forgot to take a picture with Christina, our wonderful hostess. I am not sure how she managed to get four children out the door for vacation AND leave the house in showroom condition, but she did…and even left some incredibly cute cookies that spelled out “WELCOME”. Wow. She is a dear, dear friend and our time together (talking until 1 AM) only renewed my wishes to stay in better touch with her.
