We Had A Full Day!

Fact: Bats always turn left when exiting a cave.

We were up at the crack of dawn as we had an appointment at Los Al Medical Center for a pulmonary function test.  We arrived on time and were greeted by a technician who waived us off!  The machine was busted!  So by 9:00 AM, we were in a quandary; do we stay and have breakfast or go home?  We opted for home as that’s the best place to eat.  Mary worked her magic in the kitchen while I did several repair jobs.

The Silver Fox whisked us down the 22 freeway, and by 10:00 AM, we were home.   We watched a movie as it was too warm to go outside, and at 3:00 PM, we were dressed and ready to rock and roll.  We rolled down to Laguna Canyon and met up with friends for an afternoon at the Festival of Arts.

We entered the grounds at 4:00 PM.

We enjoyed sitting and having wine while we waited for dinner planned for 6:00 PM.  We walked around the artwork to pass the time.

Interesting collection of “art.”

Terra Laguna Beach is the on-property dining destination and event venue focusing on California cuisine with sustainable food practices utilizing farm stand fresh ingredients and creating artfully crafted meals.  Surrounded by nature and creative expression, Terra Laguna Beach offers guests an artistic culinary experience unique to this place and space.

We had a private area above the restaurant.

Vicky was my next-door neighbor for thirty years and a fantastic person!  Not too often do we sit next to each other because the kibitzing goes on continuously.

Thank you, Vicky, for putting this together!

Dinner is done; time to enter the outdoor theater!

Mary, Vicky, and Donna.   Ladies, the show is about to begin!

We entered and found our seats.  We have the best in the house!  Row G is perfect!

Inside we had perfect seats.

There were sixteen of us this evening, and we are all like family to each other.

Bring on the show!  Vicky, Paul, Mary Yollie (Vicky’s sister), and Irene are left to right.

It is a wonderful world.

A kaleidoscope of international art becomes your passport to distant lands, cultural celebrations, and fascinating history in the 2022 production of Wonderful World.  Transported through the theatrical art of living pictures, the Pageant sets sail in pursuit of seasonal festivities, ancient and modern, promising new surprises at every turn.  Prepare to be amazed by the Pageant’s intoxicating blend of original music, storytelling, and stage illusions.  WONDERFUL WORLD is a love letter to our common humanity,

The picture was interesting, especially when the figures moved!


About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
