Wonderful day of relaxation and renewed friendship
Where I stayed
Patty and Daves Casa Bonita
May 6,2010 Woke up my usual 0600 coffee only this time it was freshly ground coffee beans and personally brewed for me by Patty. What a hostess. Next she presented me with one single peach colored rose and some ceramic trivets that she hand made. Very talented women. I found out later in the day that she actually hand made two stoles for the Deacon at her church. Patty and Dave have developed a wonderful friendship with this Deacon and his wife. I later in the day met them and they are indeed very kind and caring people. Corky, his wife showed me some of her poetry and I shared some thoughts I had and hoped she could use them as inspiration for more poetry. Backing up to the beginning of the day after my bible reading and posting my status on facebook, we all went out to breakfast. I met many of their friends and we had a great time. Dave then had to go to a Dr. visit at the VA and I took Patty and we both had a manicure and pedicure and then some shopping. I had to get my oil changed and tires rotated so we also got that done. Back home to catch up on e-mail and travel plans then we came up with a great idea. I asked Patty if she wanted to go with me down the coastal hwy and spend the night in a motel on the beach we didn't have to do too much persuading to get Dave to agree so on the Internet we went and found a reasonable Days In on coastal hwy and booked a room in San Simeon. This way we can extend out visit and I will have company to share what I have heard is a most beautiful drive. Patty will drive with me and snap photo's along the way. What a great idea. Then out to dinner at a great Mexican restaurant and then site seeing around the town and a view of Pittsburg Marina. Great day, great people, great ideas and great food. Yummy!!!
