Travels with Carolyn & Colette: Day One & Two
Colette - We left San Diego very early in the morning (6:00am! Did no one tell Carolyn and her Mom that models DO NOT get up that early?) To be Honest, as excited as I was to see more of California then just San Diego, I slept for the first couple of hours. Woke up in Los Angeles, The City of Angels! Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive (shopping!) But did we do any of those things? No! We whizzed by on the freeway. So ennui..... Next we traveled through the Grapevine (Why they call it that, I have no idea. There wasn't a grapevine in sight.) We then descended into the San Joaquin Valley which sounds romantic Qui? But no! Miles & miles of freeway, various crops and SMELLY cows! And HOT! I'm starting to think that Carolyn should have brought Erin. At last we started climbing into the mountains and saw both Lake Shasta and Mount Shasta; beautiful and very dramatic. But still hot. We arrived in Weed, Ca (what a stupid name for a town) to our stop for the night. I was expecting a luxury Hotel, but instead got a Quality Inn Motel! Definitely, should have brought Erin.
