On the road again

August 27, 2008

We just got back from a wonderful road trip to sunny California. We were visiting Millie and Josh, and Tonya was the maid of honor in their wedding! Millie and Josh got married Saturday and we are so happy for them. We made the decision to drive and it took us 12 hours one way. We left 3:30am Tuesday morning to arrive mid afternoon. That gave us time to unpack and have dinner with M and J before bed. Wednesday Tonya and I went to an Egyptian museum in San Jose. It was very informative and we did not see it all before Claire got bored. On Friday we headed to Santa Cruz with the rest of the bridal party for rehearsal, rehearsal lunch and to celebrate at the Hilton. Me and the boys went down to the ocean and photographed surfers, a stunt bicycle rider, and the sunset over the beach. Saturday was the big day and we got up early for the 10am wedding. It was a beautiful event at the Shadowbrook restaurant in Santa Cruz. It is a magnificent restaurant built on the side of a hill about 60 years ago. I played a small part in the wedding and got to read a meaningful passage during the ceremony. Tonya gave a tearful toast as the wedding party joined the celebration after photos. Part of the charm of the restaurant is the many dining rooms that make each experience a private one. All invited to the wedding had a room called the greenhouse to ourselves. We feasted on filet mignon while drinking champagne before the cake cutting. It was a wonderful event. After the wedding we went to a resort called Chamanade on a nearby hill in Santa Cruz. We spent our final evening at a peaceful dinner with Millie and Josh. Sunday was spent driving and after a long day in the car we were happy to be home. Once parked the trip odometer read 1711 miles and each one was filled with a happy memory!
