California Dreaming: Friday
Friday, October 16 After surfing, Steve and I went to lunch and walked along the boardwalk and on the pier. The view was spectacular! We also shopped at this darling baby store near the surf shop called Little Baby Bird Rock. I purchased a couple of surfer bibs for an upcoming shower and and a baby present for a friend. The person I spoke to was very friendly. Steve enjoyed the Happy Hour specials while I went to the Catamaran Spa. There's an outdoor jacuzzi, a eucalyptus steam room, a sauna (which was not warm, but that's okay), and a relaxation room. I loved the relaxation room and almost fell asleep. A very kind person came in and escorted me into the salon. She was a lot of fun and she curled my hair. (I had hairapy for the last night out on the town). After a wonderful visit and with good hair, Steve and I returned upstairs to get ready for the next part of the adventure. I ordered room service and dressed for a complimentary ride on the Bahia Belle Sternwheeler. It's a large boat (three stories) with a bar and dance area on the second floor and seating areas to look out on the bay in the moonlight on the top floor. We opted for both. It was a nice ride and the Bahia Belle travels from hotel to hotel every twenty minutes. We went too early, because there were still kids running around like crazy. But it was fun and romantic and glad we went. The best part of the evening, though, was seeing our friends (canine, feline, and human) at Casa de Willy. That was such a fun time! Eventually, Steve and I headed back to the hotel (sigh). A perfect end to a wonderful time in San Diego.
