Monday’s trip to San Diego was smooth as could be — the only real adventure was watching our driver figure out the way to pack all of the bags and five women in. Fortunately we had Kat on stand by to work her car magic just in case.
All the rooms, except Nora’s suite, were ready when we arrived. So did the only sensible thing: head down to eat by the pool. Margaritas, nachos and chips for all!
The continuing thread of the narrative this week will be the epic battle of heat v. cold. I’m traveling with a group of thin skinned shiverers! When we walk through any hall, go into any room, all I hear is a chorus complaining about how coooooold it is! My advice to suck it up is met with great disdain. But on Monday I was actually chilly in the shade with the stiff breeze.
We disbursed to unpack and settle. Then time to settle in on our balcony nest for the rest of the day.
Bed before 9 for everyone because we’re still on east coast time.
All of us were up early on Tuesday. I took a walk with Jill Shalvis, while Nora and Kat tackled dvd workouts. Then it was on to the serious part of the day: shopping. We found interesting clothing stores, the Nordstrom Café for lunch, then some more shopping before heading back to check in for the conference.
Once we checked in, it was back up to our balcony nest to listen to a concert and watch the water. A lovely early dinner ended the first full day at conference.
