THE CATALINA WINE MIXER
Sorry it has been SOOOOOO long, but I have been so busy with my life...blogging has become so hard for me to do!
Right now, I am on vacation in California with my friends, Kathy and Miriam and their familes. Lisa is also here enjoying the ride on the west coast. We'll do some daily posts to show you what we have been up to.
We arrived on Saturday in Los Angeles and stayed with my friend Kathy and her husband, Chris and daughter, Naomi....but since they had such a full house we stayed at their friends, Steph and Dave's apartment around the corner.
Here is Steph and Dave's apartment building. I have met Steph once, I think...they were in Las Vegas so we stayed there and enjoyed it...thanks guys!
Here is Kathy & Chris' new home. It is a beautiful mission style home across the street from the Farmer's Market.
On our first day we had lunch at my favorite, the Fairfax Farmer's Market. Then, Lisa and I boarded a double decker bus and toured LA. We stopped on Hollywood Blvd. and saw the walk of stars and some odd characters along the way. Chinese Theatre, Rodeo Dr., and all the other "Hollywood" are sights. It was nice to hang out in the sun and get a tan on the bus.
Walk of Stars
We had lunch at The Grove next to the fountain at the Farm at Beverly Hills
Sunday morning we were off to Santa Catalina Island. It was a like a scene from Home Alone where they overslept (which we didn't) but we ran around trying to get everyone and all the luggage in the cars to the ferry. There are 18 of us staying in two different homes.
Miriam and her family along with Lisa and I are stying in the "Dog House." We call it this, because it is the house where Miriam's 3 dogs are allowed to stay. We don't mind staying in the house, but it is a little quirky and it, well, MOVES.
