a taste of paradise
I'm back in San Diego tonight - CC '06 is over - so sad! I really should be in bed as I'm exhausted (despite cat napping on the trip from LA) but I'm having too much fun looking through all the pics that have been posted already. :>

Today after saying my goodbyes and checking out the hotel Bridget, Casey, Les and I drove to the beach, parked the car and just sat and talked for a while. It was fun to catch up with them and hear what they'd been up to without me. After that we headed to the Harry Potter store, Whimisic Ally. That was amusing. We next trundled to Starbucks for hot chocolate and more talking then up to the Getty Villa. joined by Maegan and her friend Emily.

The Villa was amazing, just as good as I remembered it. I went with my family when I was 15 and fell in love. It was a treat to go back now as an adult and knowing much more about Roman art, architecture and history. That is such a special place... I think my favorite thing was the way it smelled. All the flowers and herbs and the sound of fountains and running water. I want one!! :>

Oh and I was so bad and treated myself to a pair of reproduction gold and pearl Roman earrings. So cute... and good for my next Regency frock of course. :>

When I win the lottery I will be splitting my time between my two homes... the Getty Villa and the Queen Mary. :-)

Oh yeah! Although I think my choices would be the Villa and the Breakers, or possibly Vaux. :>
