The morning of New Year’s Eve we woke up to snow-capped views and temperatures worthy of our blanket scarves. We took a walk downtown, picking up coffee strong enough to keep us going for the winding drive ahead.
The wine wasn’t particularly great or terrible. But the dogs were welcomed and it was a nice change of pace along with a walk around the town. We ended up with takeout Mexican food and a memorable parking garage dining experience.
We were back on the road with Fresno as our final destination. We stopped at a Trader Joe’s in Modesto and settled into our Homewood Suites in Fresno by 7:30. As the New Year began in NYC and my home state of Georgia, we sat around the tv as 9:00 pm approached, feeling lost and confused from the three hour time difference and rumors of Mariah Carey’s lip sync fail performance. Thank goodness for Google!
Also, how do people cope with living three hours behind NYC every single day!?! We will work on solving that problem for ourselves as we cross into Arizona New Year’s Day.
