Last post from the road

Today is the last day of this very long road trip.  We've checked out of our hotel here in Tiburon and we're not flying out until late tonight.  So we're hanging out in this very nice library and I'm catching up on email, while my daughter is updating her facebook stuff.  (I think she was suffering from fb withdrawal, but the shaking has stopped now. And don't even get me started about the insane amounts of texting that these children do.  I'm shocked.) Then grocery shopping and one last dinner with John then on to a plane for home.

So...Friday took us to Reno. We stayed in a casino hotel.  Kinda crazy.  Very smoky.  I was too beat for gambling, but the exercise facility and spa were just the ticket.  We ate our faces off at a seafood buffet, then John and Colleen fiddled with slots for a while.  We slept in a bit the next morning, knowing that we didn't have a super long day on the road, and ate like crazy again at the breakfast buffet. 

Saturday we arrived here in Tiburon and it's a beautiful, beautiful place.  John's housing at the research center is super-nice and peaceful and quiet. And the excitement of San Francisco is just a short ferry ride away.  So that's what we did Sunday - took John over to Fisherman's Wharf to see all of the tourist attractions and craziness there.  Fun, fun, fun!

Monday Colleen and I did some girl stuff, including having tea at the Crown and Crumpet.  When I get home I'll have pictures - it was so great. 

And this computer is about to time me out, so I'm going to finish up and hit Publish!

Oh, thanks to everybody who commented on my earlier post.  I truly appreciate your funny comments (a girl on the road always needs a good laugh!) and your wishes for safe travels.  I feel really good knowing that all of those good thoughts for me are out there! 

Next post - HOME!


  1. Have a safe trip home! I would probably have FB withdrawals as well, I totally sympathize with the DD!!

  2. It sounds like you are having a wonderful time. I am kind of jealous... would love to wander round Fisherman's Wharf! Safe trip home.

  3. Have a safe trip home! I think it's funny how much people text. Me? I have no patience for it! Although it's much easier now that I have a BB.

  4. Hope you have a safe trip home!

    I have a 22 year old still on our phone plan, 3500 texts a month. I have to admit to being a bit of a facebook addict too :-).

  5. Sounds like you'll have some great family memories from this trip, Lee--so glad you made it safely... Hate to tell you, but the weather in the 'Burgh has just been miserable--maybe you'll bring some California sunshine back with you ??

  6. So glad you've had a great time on the road!

  7. Have a safe trip home!! So glad you've had such a great time!!

  8. Have a safe trip home! I like FB but never have anything interesting to say in my status, so I just observe other people. Like usual, LOL.
