So long, SoCal!

Sheila’s “Good Ideas, Bad Ideas”

Good Idea: 
Performing in San Diego, Long Beach, Torrance and Malibu
Bad Idea: Giving up coffee at the beginning of a 5 week tour

Good Idea: Listening to The Beach Boys while running on Long Beach
Bad Idea: Having your parking meter expire while running on Long Beach

Good Idea: Amanda doing water colour painting in the passenger seat on the drive to Big Sur
Bad idea: Amanda leaving her water colour cup in the cup holder beside Sheila

Good Morning San Diego!

Today marks the beginning of our 5 week tour through California, New Mexico, Alberta, British Columbia and Washington. Sheila and I spent our first San Diego morning pursuing our individual bliss.

-went for a run on the boardwalk
-spotted a man walking a pot bellied pig

-sat on Mission Beach drinking coffee
-painted the ocean

Something tells me this will be a trip to remember. Gotta go get ready for the show tonight.
Stay classy…world!
