We got to sit out at the restaurant's patio for dinner. It was quite nice, as we pretended the air was fresh. No high chairs to use, no kids to sit still... ahhh, how could I get used to this? It was nearly 100 degrees out during the afternoon, but I still ordered a bowl of Boston Clam Chowder. Rudy ordered the Fried Calamari (okay, I had some too) that was quite delicious (I didn't eat the purpley-tentacled ones!). For our meal, I ordered the Dungeness Crab and Asparagus Ravioli, while Rudy went for the Blackened Pacific Snapper. Both were excellent choices. Although we were quite full from our meals, this special occasion needed dessert too. We chose to split a Caramel Macadamia Blueberry Crisp. Oh yeah, it was good! Rudy was a little embarrassed at me pulling out my camera for a few pictures, so I didn't take too many. I even made him take a picture of the sunset from his view.
We returned to our room after dinner and were surprised to find jazz music on the radio, our bed sheets turned down, our complimentary water out of the refrigerator and on our night stands. Someone's been here! Our toiletries were nicely organized on the bathroom sink, my clothes (that were once on the bed) now lay across the recliner chair...and thank goodness they moved Rudy's dirty socks to the "already-been-worn" pile! I'm glad we weren't too much like slobs for the housekeepers. I never expected such treatment! Rudy found yet another movie to watch, while I attempted more crossword puzzles. I could never finish one, but kept on starting others. We sank into the feather bed, and I, could NOT get comfortable to sleep... oh, it was comfy, but I couldn't sleep in it. I felt like I was sinking. We awoke the next morning with a disturbing wrong number phone call - heck, it was 9:20 am and check out was to be at 11:00 am! Rise and Shine!!! Our stay was done. We reminisced a lot about our "before kids" era; had a yummy breakfast at IHOP and went on our way to get Dominic and return to Abuelos for the other two. We're back into reality now.
Complimentary Voss Water. Strange, but true.
Look at the plumbing on this thing!
My first alcoholic beverage...or...maybe it was my second???
The Spirit of Sacramento cruised by.
The sun set, and made me realize I need to clean my lens.
I could get used to this position!
