We departed at 9:00 AM and decided we would take good ol’ 99 since it was the closest. We were surprised that on Sunday morning, traffic was zip. We made it out of LA without stopping on the freeway once for traffic!
Bill Lee’s Bamboo Curtain was our second stop (we stopped at a rest stop to exercise a bit). we have the regular. Paul loves their “paper wrapped chicken”. We ate about 20% of what they served. We have an ice chest in the van so the meal came home with us.
On to Stockton we go. While driving, we found out that Tom was moved to a rehab center in Stockton so we decided to visit Kaye and not go to the hospital as Tom was probably too tired to receive visitors.
We visited for two hours and then headed back to Wine and Roses Spa in Lodi. Great place, We had an amazing dinner as Paul finally did their pork chop, which was huge!. We sat in the bar and listened to the piano music until closing.
We walked back to our room and crashed for the night… Amazing how much sitting for 8 hours and driving takes out of you… Perhaps hours of concentration?
