Pre-Iraq California

Needless to say, Tom hates being away, but LOVES California…the weather is amazing (no humidity!) and the skies and water are a gorgeous blue! It doesn’t hurt that his hotel is right on the beach, too! He would love to live there if it wasn’t for the exorbitant housing costs (drop our house out there and it would go for probably $300,000 to $400,000). But, we’ve decided I’m going to go visit for a week when he comes home!

We’ve been spoiled…we talk at least twice a day and IM every so often. It’s comforting knowing I can still pick up the phone and call anytime (well, keeping in mind the time difference, of course!). I know I shouldn’t get used to it (it will make it that much harder when he leaves the country and we can’t talk every day), but I’m enjoying it while it lasts. I’m thankful for email as well…that way we can all get picture updates…

In the following pictures, you will see a portion of his kitchenette, the view out his hotel room, an art fair right outside the hotel, and his trip to the beach. Why the shot of the parking garage? I asked the same thing. Turns out, it’s a hidden parking garage…located completely under the property of the hotel—it’s about a half block and the buildings, pool, jacuzzis, grass, etc. all sit on top of it!
