I am vivacious!
In Santa Monica in hotel by the ocean ready to celebrate Sian s 40th birthday (I know it's hard to believe looking at me!!)which would have been great had the bar next door not been playing such loud music till the early hours. But we Baker girls are made of strong stuff so we were up and doing a 90min yoga class even after a transatlantic flight. We did have 2 breakfasts though. Sian chose to celebrate with vegan lunch in Cafe Gratitude where you had to order by saying "I am" before your choice. I felt slightly weird saying "I am vivacious" to get kale chips!!!! Shopping ,nails done,massage then a fabulous dinner overlooking the sea waited on by a Philip Seymour Hoffman lookalike who was attentive but rubbish with the camera. Lovely day!! Slept well that night!

And on to Maui....

Hired a Jeep, drove to apartment. It's great.. about 10 feet from the sea with pool and jacuzzi. Quite windy on this part of the coast and weather is so changeable from mile to mile and minute to minute. Our days have already become yoga,food,swimming and now surfing (Sian not me). We have lots

planned if we can find the time :-) Drove round the northern coast which was like being in New Zealand again---switchback narrow roads. Glad Sian was driving as still have senior moments about which side of road I am driving on!!

I just love how friendly the people are and how good the service is. Am getting more pleasant by the day!
