Well, the morning of the trip's here, and boy am I glad we're leaving.  We're having to get a new roof, and if I had to stay here for the whole time I'd go nuts!!

-----------

Update from the evening.  It's 1:30 my time, 11:30 local so this will be short notes for now.

Picked up from mom's by a cab company -- and he showed up in a Hummer H3 :D

Flight was fine.  No troubles either leg.

Actually won money in Las Vegas on our layover.  I decided to play the penny slots.... put in $1, walked out with $3.40.  Not bad.  I can see why they get addicting, but even still after about 5 hits of the "bet 50 credits" button, I was starting to get bored.

Our car at San Jose is a red (very pretty red at that) Explorer 4x4.  Handles wonderfully.

Stopped at a Target on the way down to Carmel and picked up most of the stuff we wanted to have for the trip (kleenex, snacks, cokes, etc).

Got in to Carmel, Vagabond's House Inn, at 10pm.  Had no trouble finding it after we stopped on one of the main roads in Carmel to look up the address, but I was glad I'd studied the map.

This place is VERY cute, very cozy.  I love it already.  So does mom. :D

We got pictures, tried out mom's new camera (a Canon Powershot)  All of 4 pictures each (we're both very tired), but already I like her little camera quite well.  Eventually, I may look into one for myself for use when the big one's too big to carry around.

Also had a big surprise.  In the room they give you complementary Sherry.  Normally, mom and I don't like alcoholic beverages, but this one isn't just okay, it's actually downright good.  Considering I've had a mild sore throat all day, having 3 sips of a very good Sherry (best either of us has ever tasted) isn't a bad "medicine" :D

Now, to bed.
