On day 4 (Sunday) some of the ladies left the beach house, and the rest of us went to the Red House Cafe in Pacific Grove. We all had a delicious lunch and Debbie let me try her crab cake which I had never tasted before - it was really tasty! After lunch we went to Monterey for a walk around the shops there; I picked up some nice trinkets to bring home :) Afterwards we headed back to the beach house and had dinner there, followed by a nice soak in the hot tub.
Monday morning rolled around and we cleaned up the house before heading back inland for our last day. We picked up lunch at Gayle's Deli in Santa Cruz, and MJ generously offered to have Patti, Sue and me stay the night at her house in Los Gatos, and she also wanted to show us how to make lavender wands with lavender from her garden. It was lots of fun learning a new craft! The photo on the left is some of the lavender MJ's husband picked from their garden, and on the right is Patti working hard on her lavender wand :)
I'll be back tomorrow with photos of some of our completed projects!
