Yes, it was a fabulous vacation. My cousin Suzie was getting married last weekend and we decided to take a "girls only" trip to California. I went with my Mom, my sis, and my sis-in-law. We had the absolute best time! We flew in Thursday and conquered Californian traffic with our best friend "Garmin". Even though she spoke with an English accent and would say things like, "bear right", we still loved her! Do not attempt to tour your way around California without one of these. This thing saved our butts. We really don't know what traffic is here in Utah. I will take my I-15 traffic anyday. California traffic was NUTS! It did not matter what time of day it was, traffic was RIDICULOUS! Remind me to never move there.
If I would have known these little guys existed, I would have never done that! GROSS!
Saturday was a pretty cold day, but we toughed it out and drove to San Jose to see the Winchester House. It was a crazy house. For those of you that have never heard of it, it is this huge mansion that a woman designed to confuse the spirits in her house. To me it just looked like crappy carpentry, but if there were ghosts in that house, I don't know how they found their way around. There were doorways that led to nothing, stairs that went into the ceiling. The woman was nuts. The woman did have taste though. I absolutely loved the walls and hardware throughout the house.
Our final stops of our vacation led us to Fisherman's Wharf and Lombard St. Fisherman's wharf was ok, but it smelled a little fishy. Imagine that!
