We got up early and drove to Tom and Katherine’s home to have a quick bite before saying goodbye to her brood. Everyone had a 3 to 5+ hour drive to get back to their respective homes. After the family photos, and a round of hugs and goodbyes to the kids, the four of us sat down to tune into the NFL games and visit.
We had a casual lunch and, later that afternoon, headed back to the hotel to change, returning for dinner at around 7ish. Tom prepared a flank steak on the grill, and served it with a tasty pasta with a red pepper sauce and a mixed green salad, plus some nice red and white wines. It was great meal and rounded out the perfect day of visiting.
Tomorrow, we are on the move again. We have about a 2.5 hour drive to Carmel, where we will stay for a few days. Katherine and Tom will be arriving in Carmel on Thursday, the day we fly from Monterey to Vegas.
