Scrambling to get cleaned up and pack up the room, Sharon and I met Lee, Daniel and Morgan at the Cowgirl Cafe for breakfast. We had a very nice visit. It has been great to see the three of them and get a chance to spend some time with Lee over the last couple of days.
After breakfast, we made a quick stop at the hotel and then ended north. I don't think that I have driven the stretch of Highway 101 from Paso Robles to Salinas in more than thirty years (1990?).
We rolled up to Drew and Carmen's house in Orinda about 1:30 pm for a birthday party and house warming. The birthday party was originally scheduled for June, but was rescheduled in the aftermath of everyone getting COVID at Ricky's Celebration of Life.
Jack and Jason, as well as my sister Leeann and her husband Dean, showed up. We got a chance to meet Carmen's parents (Pam and Mike). It was a nice afternoon. Jack, Jason and I played Mario Kart towards the end of the afternoon. We ended up staying longer than we planned.
We had made a decision to not stay Saturday night in the bay area. Leaving Orinda about 7 pm, we were back in Carmichael about 8:30 pm.
