Usually when out here for Thanksgiving, I end up eating at a Chiii's or the YWCA but not this time. This time it is at the Westin La Paloma, guest of my daughter. Today's temp was an unusually warm 85 so since I elected to sit outside, I thought I would bake in long pants but not to worry, the patio was shaded and it was very comfortable. I grabbed a plate, elbowed my way to the head of the line and soon.....
....was standing in front of this. I tried not to be conspicuous by my frenzied grabbing of shrimp, salmon, oyster shooters, smoked salmon, etc... I returned to my table and began to eat what would merely be the first helping.
Then I came back with a 2nd plate of food, with a 2nd glass of cab.
It was nice to sit in the warmth with grand views of the Catalinas. Burp. Well, that was embarrassing. I got up and stumbled toward.....
....the dessert table!!! The portions were small so I....
.....took two small pieces of pumpkin and pecan pie. It was all very good. I did not visit the "hot table" so missed the turkey, roast beef, etc... Oh well, maybe next year. I soon....
....exited the facility. Well, back to hiking and cycling.
