OMG, It's Like Totally Awesome


Sorry, couldn't help but blurt that out. There's something about sitting outside on a private veranda, listening to the crashing waves of the Pacific while sipping a lovely rose' (which is so NOT White Zinfandel) wine, with a working wireless access that makes me want to start, like totally like talking in Valley Girl Speak.

In all seriousness, if you're headed to the Santa Monica/Malibu area--you simply must stay at the Casa Malibu Inn. It's inexpensive (128.00 for a room with the view of Malibu Beach--get out!); it's unbelievably charming; the service is impeccable; it's a little slice of perfection. The decor in the rooms is funky, shabby chic, but the sheets are top notch and the owners are wonderfully accommodating, friendly and welcoming. I'm a jaded, road weary traveler, who hates leaving Maine, but this joint is so perfect that I've already started plotting and planning a return trip here with Retired Guy for a bit of a vacation (after summah's over, of course).

Takes a little bit of the sting off the Cavs losing, doesn't it...?

Totally helps with the Cavs, but the Sox still hurt--badly.

Such a lovely spot.

I'd be jealous if not for the prospect of dining at Chauncey Creek tomorrow. And taking my zillionth photo of Nubble Point. And doing all that Maine coastal stuff that's part and parcel of your mainelife!

Welcome to the maine coast. I hope the weather will be lovely. If you happen to see a little red mini cooper convertible, flag me down so that we can say hello in person!

And if you happen to see a large black Saab bearing NH legislative plates, do likewise!

Your territory isn't even an hour away from us. Unless we stop first in Kittery...that can slow us down...

Kittery slows everyone down! It also lightens many a wallet.
