A Day of Travel for Team 1

Hello friends in the blogosphere!

Team 1 (Susan, dayle, Debby, Michelle, Melanie and Suzanne) headed out early for almost an entire day of travel. We arrived in LA at 3:15pm west coast time (6:15 our time) to weather a little colder than Jacksonville.

I have never been to California, so it was fun for me to see the Hollywood Hills for the first time.

Our hotel is the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel on Hollywood Blvd. We are across the street from the Kodak Theatre where the Oscars are held. And Grumann's Chinese Theatre with the walk of stars along the sidewalk. It was really too late by the time we got here to do much investigating more to come.

After an entire day of airport food (fast food in the layover and crackers, cookies and peanuts on the plane) we were anxious to throw our bags down and get a real meal. Susan was able to get a reservation for Spago. It was absolutely delicious. The big surprise of the meal was when Wolfgang Puck actually came out and shook hands with us all. We almost choked on our food! Then we were kicking ourselves because we were too shocked to get out the camera fast enough!

Today we head out across the street where the conference is being held to attend the National Model School meeting which will last all afternoon. We pick up team 2 (Debbie, Melissa, Angela and Rick) at the airport at 6pm.

Hi Melanie and Team 1 crew,
I am so excited for all of you! I love to read all about your adventures. Wow! You ate at Spago's and had the famous owner/chef come out and shake your hands! Keep your camera out, so you don't freeze next time! Know that I will be with all of you in "blogging" and that I am with you in spirit, even though not physically.
