We rented a second car, a white Altima, and headed for lunch at Cheesecake Factory, then headed off to Carmel. Rita and I desperately trying to keep up with Miss Goldy, as Jonelle said, like peanut butter and jelly. The drive took over two hours because the traffic was much worse than expected.
After seeing our beautiful accommodations and unpacking the car, Nancy called to say she was waiting for her pick up at the Monterey Airport. And then there were 6. We stopped at the grocery on the way back to the house to purchase a few liquid essentials - beer, wine, liquor and coffee. Went home for a cocktail, then headed back to the airport to pick up Bobbie. And then there were 7!
By this time it was 8:30 California time so we headed out to a restaurant, Rio Grill. The food hit the spot. We had also noticed around the corner a "Nothing Bundt Cakes" store and were looking forward to picking a few up to bring to the house for dessert, however, we were disappointed that they had already closed. No worries, they are very close, so I am sure we will be back.
We enjoyed a visit on the back patio before going to bed sometime past midnight, looking forward to a fun week ahead.
