Back Home

Well our trip went pretty well. We went with some friends to see Def Leppard/Posion and Cheap Trick in Marysville, we had a lot of fun. The excitement of the people, lights, music, sitting on the lawn, the smell of the grass. A couple of younger girls in our group even got to go up on stage for a bit (above is a picture of them with the Def Leppard drummer). Super fun for us older people who actually knew the words to the songs Cheap Trick played!

Then it was off to Fort Bragg. The above picture is of glass beach, there used to be a dump site there, so a ton of broken and polished old glass, ceramic dishes, etc., like little jewels in the sand. We had a great room with a jacuzzi and fireplace with ocean view. A lot of people over there for the Labor Day weekend though...too many! We almost got ran off the road by some guy in a hurry on a mountain road, Thank you God for saving us that day in case I didn't say it enough.

We ate way too much good food of course. The above picture is the Mendo Bistro (second floor). If you are ever in the Fort Bragg, Ca, area, you really should try this place, excellent food!

My husband and I were able to reconnect a bit and just have some nice private time with no interruptions. We are grateful we were able to get away and just leave everything behind. It helps even for just a few days, take a mental and geographical break from the everyday demands of life:)

Hope you all had a fabulous Labor Day Weekend!

I like that glass beach. I'm sure that there were some neat things there.

What a great time!!! I am so glad you went. I have great respect for Rick Allen, no many drummers out there that lose an arm and keep on playing....

sounds like a fun getaway.
