This was a very BIG birthday, carefully planned in every detail by the Event Planner, Allan C. Miles. We left Walnut Creek mid-afternoon on March 25 for an "unknown" destination, but arrived close to 10:00 p.m. at a lovely Bed and Breakfast Inn from the 1890's in Santa Barbara, The Upham Inn, after having had a wonderful lobster dinner at the Paso Robles Inn in Paso Robles. We spent Wednesday "poking" around Santa Barabara and enjoying the ocean. Thursday morning, we drove to San Diego. We had terrible traffic, and it took way longer than it should have to reach our wonderful Bed and Breakfast Inn, the beautifully restored Britt Scripps Inn, built in 1889, and the former residence of the Scripps family. Marie and Steve flew in from Portland, and Kirsten and John flew back from their trip to New York! Robin flew down from San Francisco. Of course, we started the festivities with champagne, my favorite beverage!
