Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

Next time, we pick a resort with "shore" in the name, rather than "cliffs."

Oh, the climb isn't so very bad, and it's good for the both of us to get the exercise. But, hiking down to the harbor or up to the PCH is non-trivial effort. Go us, for walking back, instead of calling for a taxi. :)

Today was my very first ever mud wrap, first ever Vichy shower, first ever steam bath. Very very nice. I'm thinking of getting Flar a table-top face steamer for his birthday, now that I've experienced how wonderful it was to breathe in the moist air. (He can't take anti-inflammatories or sudafed for sinus headaches, so he often resorts to hot steamy showers.)

Ro and I had the same treatments today, one after the other, and then sat in the steam room, sauna and jacuzzi together. It was very relaxing.

We hiked up to the PCH for dinner at a Chinese restaurant tonight, and shared War Won Ton Soup, Crab Rangoon and Garlic Chicken. The hot tea had tea leaves in it, and mine resolved down into a miniature of one of the saint-nooks (or shrines, or whatever they're actually called) in the gardens at Mission San Juan di Capistrano.

We each finished our LJ Idol posts today, and tonight we played Take Six. Ro was so cute. "I might even let you win." As if I'd have half as much fun that way. ;)

Catchin' up on LJ and chillin. Tomorrow we go whale watching.

Sounds like you're talking about my old stomping grounds. Where are you staying, if I can ask?

We're staying at the Marriott Laguna Cliffs Resort and Spa, in Dana Point.

I used to live in Dana Point. You ARE in my old stomping grounds. I think I know the restraunt you went to. They have the best tea! Their Garlic Fried Chicken is TO DIE FOR. Was it on Golden Lantern?

Heh. How cool is that? Yes it was right off of Golden Lantern. And yes, the tea was tasty. We didn't have the Garlic Friend Chicken, so as to avoid too spicy; we did enjoy the regular garlic chicken, however.

Mhm, the Garlic Fried Chicken isn't terribly spicy at all, but it is SOOOO Good. Gods I miss that place. Their Jasmine tea is the best. I fell in love with it and wish I could have it here. I didn't much care for their soup, but i would eat lunch there 2-3 times a week. I lived just up the street and a few streets over. *grin* Less than a few blocks away.

The house that Nicole Brown Simpson was killed in, isn't far away either.
