We have a guest. It’s our first guest. My niece, Melissa, has stopped by on her way from Milwaukee to Fiji. We’re on the way to Fiji, right?
Melissa was married six months ago. She and her husband, Mark, are going on their honeymoon. He arrives Thursday morning. They depart Thursday night. She has never been to California!
Did I mention we’re on the way to Fiji?
Helaine and I have discussed this. We expect more visitors now that we’re in SoCal. More people come here, or want to come here.
Now, how to entertain? Melissa is our test case.
Stef was able to come down and join us. She, Melissa and Helaine are making pottery right now. I’m dogsitting.
This evening we’re planning on a real California style dinner outside at Duke’s in Huntington Beach. It’s at the foot of the Huntington Beach Pier. The photo on the left is a screencap I just took from their webcam. It’s the perfect SoCal setting.
Tomorrow the girls head to Disneyland. Need I say more?
Thursday, with Mark on-the-ground and in-tow, Helaine and I will drive to Los Angeles. We’ll show them Stef’s neighborhood in Hollywood and probably head toward Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive plus other touristy sites.
By the time they get on their Fiji-bound plane they should be exhausted and ready for the 10.5 hour flight. Meanwhile, we’ll have some training for our next guests.
This is going to happen more often now that we live in the Southland.
