Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Boy did we make great choices for Christmas Day.  We heard that the Mansion Inn on Forsyth Park was the place to dine! So we had one of the best dining experiences we’ve had.  And given the great resturants of the SF Bay area that is saying a lot. The service was wonderful and the decor delightful.  Our lovely server shared a bit about her many generations of family in the Savannah area-going back into the 1700’s.  We  visited in the lobby with a lovely woman who had set up the gift shop art and gift selection.  She was very warm and friendly and took a photo of us in front of the fire.  The Inn itself is beautiful and here is the address.  Copy and paste as I could not make a link.  It would be a perfect place to visit on your vacation. http://www.mansiononforsythpark.com

Our meal was 4 courses.  Each course was equally delicious and elegant in every way.  I started with Crab and Roasted Corn Chowder, then Jarlsburg and Havarti Risotto Cakes,  Finally  the entre’e Turkey Breast Roulade with Crimini, Porcini and Pancetta.  My dessert was Fudge Caramel Pecan Cake.  Russ had Roasted Leg of Lamb and it was incredible.  You can see that this was not our usual alkaline, vegetarian dinner!.

Following the dining experience, we went to Les Miserable.  I have not really cried in a movie in a long long time, but let me tell you that this one brought me to all the levels of emotion.  I was enthralled by the story, and was able to hear all the words in the music which I often missed in both stage presentations.  I could not believe Hugh Jackman-so very very good.  Anne Hathaway was extraordinary.  Can’t recommend this enough.

So I guess this is how to do Christmas in a new way and share wonderful experiences with the one you love.  I missed everyone in the family, but Russ and I enjoyed each other and our lovely day.
