Week ThirtyEight: Arriving LAX 2015 – Encinitas and Chocolate Dessert

Excitement ITS a GO Huston…WE are in COUNTDown MODE…

Exit Cuba 1959 and Enter Encinitas California 2015 for our eldest Daughter Kelly’s Wedding to Scott Hubby to be…

First things First…Plane lands & yes we have gone forward in time back into 2015 and LAX Airport, Get luggage…WOW it all made it through no worries mate! Rum, Cigars and Gifts gratitude Customs Officers 🙂  Find Rental Car Shuttle, lucky this airport is VERY familiar to us, get the shuttle and then…this is where EVERYthing I have learnt in MasterKeys comes into play…After standing in the wrong line for like 10mins I am re directed to the garage RULE ONE: Read Signs NOW this is where the FUN begins “I laugh at the World! “Og Mandino” thanks Og Im needing it about NOW! there is only one agent on and it is taking up2 half and hour for each person at this rate we will be here till midnight…we got to the garage at 11:30am, there are too many stories to tell what happens in the next 2hours maybe I’ll write a blog Post Just about those…

OK we finally hit the counter after letting a MUM in who was hoping to make it to her daughters Graduation still 3/4’s hour drive away…”Give More, Get More” Og Mandino She was Totally Stoked! Yay in our Rental…Pull out of the lot & Holy Guacamole! NO aircon! STOP, turn around, check that car out, send hubby to jump line and get another car sorted while i drag luggage over to the car I want LOVing it FREE UP-Grade with a FULL tank of Gas and NO need to fill up on return 🙂

Hit the Highway into the Fast Lane and head South…All goes extremely well…WE are in the FLOW…Stop at OceanSide for some Wave Watching and Fish N chips mmm mmm mmm…Drive to Encinitas & check into our cute wee room, shower and immediately fall into bed snoring till first light!

Go to Lofty’s for the BEST coffee and sit next to a retired Fire Chief Jack, who is writing a book, when he explains what its about we are like WOW sounds Awesome! He was abit taken aback as that was not the usual reaction he had gotten from other people whom he ha told,  BUT hey we are NOT Other People…”I am Natures Greatest Miracle” Og Mandino…He is looking for people who have had “after death communications”  he had some stories of his own to tell, all in all a very Interesting Man.

On the Road to our Hotel where not only US but most of the Family and Kelly’s old time Friends would be staying for the duration… The Marriot Del Mar in Carmel Valley very nice…Remember First Class all the way Baby! We arrive early but the front desk staff are amazing and get us a room straight away to hang out in (we have Warwick’s 85 yr old Mum who flew in from NZ) until our suite is ready 🙂

EveryOne is arriving…Its EXCITING…we unpack then go hang by the pool…I walk inside to go to the loo and on my way I pass a WHOLE Tray-ful of individual Chocolate Desserts no-one is around I Dee-Lishously DeeVour one with my eyes and pass on by with a BIG smile on my face…As I return back two wait staff are getting ready to take the tray into a luncheon and serve the guests, I cheekily say “You guys are way too trusting leaving those out here with me walking past” They laugh and go about their serving…I told the boys (James and Dan and Warwick) about my adventure…NOT 15mins later the two waitstaff arrive with one of the Chocolate desserts for me, they said one person didn’t show and it was MINE! Love the way the universe works ASK and you will receive! The only one to share it with was Dan as James went off to do something with Warwick 🙂 Dan and I licked that little dish clean mmm mmm mmm….
