The following pictures were all taken at restaurants that Sandy and I went to while she was in California. Some have shots of food or drink, but mostly of people. I didn't do so well at Artistic Affaire with taking pictures of people. This, I guess, was my way of making up for it.
Acting like a movie star at a place on Melrose in West Hollywood called Taste.
Sandy with her champagne cocktail (what all the big stars drink!) having her Hollywood moment.
The next night we had dinner at Shutters in Santa Monica. This was my yummy drink. Love the color! And it tasted good, too!
I didn't manage to take any people pictures here, but Denise Hahn was kind enough to drive us around Hollywood, Venice Beach, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills so Sandy could get a real feel for the area. Our dinner ended with sunset behind the Santa Monica Pier.
On Tuesday we went to the World Famous San Diego Zoo. This lovely peacock was strolling around. We tried to get him to show his tail feathers, but he was more interested in eating whatever it was that was on the ground. Still, he was quite beautiful.
An adorable koala bear. He was a little guy and didn't even look real.
Tuesday night we went for dinner in La Jolla at George's. Gina drove down from Oceanside and the 3 of us enjoyed a delicious meal.
Another yummy margarita!
I had spaghetti with clams.
And I ate all of it!!
Me and Sandy at the restaurant. Unfortunately, on the drive over to La Jolla, the fog rolled in and there was no sunset to see.
The next day, Wednesday, we met at Miguel's in Coronado for a San Diego bloggers lunch in honor of Sandy. This is me and Debbie, having our own movie star moment.
Sandy and Jackie
It was quite an adventure with Sandy. She is safely back home in Toronto and it all seems like a dream now. I am finally caught up on posting from Artistic Affaire and the days following.
