We tried hard to hide from Monday, but here it is anyway!
We work hard all week, and occasionally if we get the chance to take a quick weekend road trip, we take it. Doheny Beach in Dana Point, California was our chosen destination this past weekend. Once you are able to find parking, (All those Arizona license plates heading for the beach) you will find a beautiful beach area that has grass, palm trees, sand and ocean. Lunch was at Boneyard Beach Cafe which played a medley of Beach Boys music, (When you could hear it over the guitar player who was set up nearby! But, hey he was just trying to earn a living!) served a variety of food and drinks, and had a to-go menu or a dine in which featured outside seating. It had a beautiful ocean view, which was very relaxing.
We stayed one night in a major chain hotel (We like to use local businesses when we can, but so does everybody else this time of year.) During the night time at the hotel we noticed a very strong cigarette smoke smell coming from the vent in our bathroom.(This is a non-smoking hotel.) We alerted the front desk who said they would send a manager up to take care of it, we didn't hear from them again. The next morning we noticed the same strong smell in the hallway, and noticed someone had emptied a lot of trash bags in the ice/vending room area. We let the management know as a courtesy, and also because we like this hotel and would like to continue staying there. When we left a couple of hours later, they still hadn't taken care of the mess. It's sad that such a nice hotel has such poor customer service!
Before we headed home on Sunday, we stopped by Disneyland, rode a few rides, had a spider venom snow cone from their Summer of Heroes area in California Adventure. The heat and humidity seemed to be at their peak, and it was quite sticky over there, so the snow cones were extremely refreshing. And, the nice thing about snow cones is that you can use almost any kind of flavor for toppings.
Did anyone else do anything fun or exciting over the weekend? We are always looking for something inspiring to do nearby. If you need a cleaning service who strives to get back to their customers in a timely manner, please give us a call. Enjoy your Monday,and think about cooling off with a icy cold treat, we highly recommend it!
