California Dreaming

This morning found Susan and I throwing our suitcases in the car and heading out to the Kansas City airport. It was a beautiful morning and the car was filled with the sounds of "California Dreaming".  We were off to a good start.  Well, sort of.  Susan really can't sing--she's always a little off tune.  I couldn't really remember the words.  We tried to move on to other California songs, but didn't have much more luck.  We flew to Denver, changed planes and then off to Oakland.  The picture above was right after we landed and were being picked up by our assigned driver. By this point, we were not at our photogenic best!  We checked in to the hotel which is wonderful. Of course being the resourceful ladies that we are, we found the address for the local quilt store, had the front desk call us a cab, and off we went to check it out.  It is a great shop in an old Coca-Cola warehouse. We did our part in keeping the national monetary system flowing. After a wonderful steak dinner in the hotel we've jumped into our jammies and we are hand sewing bindings on quilts.

This is a quick picture we took from the car while we were on the way to the hotel.  It is a little fuzzy, but I think you can get an idea of some of the scenery we got to enjoy on the way to the hotel.
This is only day one of our trip.  We have laughed till we cried, cried till we laughed and loved every minute of it.
