The drive over was so lovely. I'm so glad that my best friend moved "over the mountain." Now, when I go for a visit, I always take the scenic Ortega Highway. The two-lane highway that snakes over the hill through the trees and shrubs is one of my favorite drives. The destination is even sweeter...me and her, shopping, lunching, sunning in the pool and talking girl stuff the rest of the afternoon...well, it just doesn't get any better than that!!! On the drive home, happy and feeling cocky...taking those curves with confidence and speed can be exhilerating!!!
