Where I stayed
Ciara arrived and she defeated the jet lag fairly lively! We went straight for a spa herbal wrap on the Saturday - the two of us wrapped like jumbo breakfast rolls! We got a fit of the giggles when I Sneezed and nearly burst out of my wrap! I broke into a flop sweat! Which I think speeded up our "cooking" process. So much for the recommendation of lots of water and organic food, we met up with Peadar and his buddies for a few drinks afterwards.
We'd booked to see Michael Bublé in (to be known as Mickey Boob Lay) concert in Sacramento on the Tuesday. We hired a car and drove there - arrived to 40 degree heat. Hot! Damn hot! And the weather was warm too. The next day we drove to Sonoma - what took me a day on the bike was a leisurely afternoon drive!
Thurday evening we went to The Academy of Sciences where, from 6-10pm they have a single/mingle night - a few beers, look at the exhibs...it's a great idea. There was even a "flash" gig outside as we left but they were chased off by security - not before Ciara "flash" danced!!
And then Friday we met up with friends of our parents before Ciara had to leave for the airport. Short but sweeeet visit.
So now I've spent over 2 weeks in Fran San and it's high time I got going. I've extended my flights by a few weeks so am gonna try to get close to LA over the next few weeks - now flying out of there to Dublin.
I've got a feeling there's some serious muscle ache ahead of me!!
And the blog goes on...
