We left early Tuesday morning(5am) and arrived in time to call and invite some friends in the Klamath area to have breakfast with us. Then we swung west and found the small area of Gazelle CA and checked out the swather. It was older than the model number indicated. We hurried on down to Santa Rosa and had dinner with my aunt and cousin and her family.

We left Santa Cruz and headed up to San Jose where we were to meet another cousin for dinner. We were early and hubby had to use a restroom. My eagle eye spotted a Barnes and Noble book store. Hubby didn't know what he was in for! I spent an hour and a half perusing the shelves and coming out with two discounted books on handguns, one book of Indian photographs, and two mysteries with Native American elements. Oh and chocolate!
Our arrival at the hotel was even later than we'd expected. The nice young woman who ran the hotel stayed up waiting for us to arrive because we'd let her know we'd be late. Only there wasn't a parking spot in the small parking area of the hotel left. She instructed my husband where he could park for free but to watch out for the streets that would be cleaned in the morning. We fell into bed after midnight.
The next morning hubby had a bad feeling and went to check on the car. Sure enough, a ticket was on the windshield. He'd parked on the wrong side of the road. He parked the car in the hotel parking, and we didn't take the car out again until we left on Saturday.

After the game we went to wait in the taxi line, which was longer than the football field and no sign of any taxis. Brother-in-law went searching for alternative transportation and shoved us on an already overloaded bus.Hubby was holding onto the bars at the front of the aisle holding all the standing people into the aisle so the driver could see hsi side mirror. I couldn't take much more of having my bubble invaded and the first time the bus stopped I bailed off. Hubby and in-laws were saying, "We don't want off yet." I said, "I'm walking." I couldn't take it any more. So they all got off and we walked 3.5 miles back to the hotel stopping along the way for a late Italian dinner.
I like visiting the city but I need my space!
