I had a fabulous time in San Jose two Saturdays ago, delivering my first in-person Scrivener workshop for the Silicon Valley Romance Writers. Lots of good questions and enthusiastic students, followed by a delicious Indian lunch buffet.
To top it off, my flight didn’t leave until Sunday night. Never one to miss an opportunity for a little extra travel—or a peek at the ocean—I took a side trip to Santa Cruz before meeting a longtime friend and his family for dinner.
If you’ve been hanging around my blog long enough, you probably know that I was meant to live on the beach. So far, destiny and reality have not caught up with each other, but I’m an optimist. Until then, I take every chance I can to feed my need for the sight, sound, feel, and scent of the ocean.
Besides, when the rental car company upgrades you to a red Mustang because the compact you booked is not available, you must take a road trip.
Here are a few highlights from my fun in the sun.
