Lauren, of the Jabberwock Inn in Monterey, and the Red Chair spent quite a bit of time planning out all of the amazing things they were hoping to do while Red was visiting for those very short few days. Both then agreed it would be so much fun to have a pretend bridal photo shoot at Lovers’ Point. Posing for pictures with a wedding veil in a scenic spot was just what Red wanted to do. This beautiful location is where many engaged couples choose to host their wedding ceremonies, and Red thought it was just perfect. Maybe someday, when the Red Chair finds that right piece of furniture, they will come back and hold their ceremony here too!
While visiting the Vagabond's House Inn in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA the Red Chair Travels decided to try out how it felt to sit at the head of city council (the mayoral "seat" once held by actor Clint Eastwood one of Red's favorite actors!) After banging the gavel a few times, we think the authority went to Red's head. It started decreeing that people need to take more vacations!
Although Red would make a great Mayor, Red did not think it could give up the luxurious life of travel it currently has (lucky chair!) so it was on to visiting the next spot on Innkeeper Thomas's list.
Red's original plan to end the first day visiting the Bed and Breakfast Inn at La Jolla was to try a little hang gliding and para gliding at La Jolla's Torrey Pine Glideport, however conditions for gliding that day were poor due to the un-seasonally hot and dry Santa Ana winds. Instead the next best thing the Red Chair could do was to spend a few minutes admiring the breathtaking view from Glider Cliffs. Although not the same, it still was one of the best spots the Red Chair has ever seen!
The Red Chair loves meeting other red "items"! It is especially exciting when they are super old and full of history just like the Red Chair itself. While visiting the Ballard Inn and Restaurant in Ballard, CA the innkeepers took Red to visit the Ballard Little Red Schoolhouse, the first school established in Santa Barbara County in 1882 and is still in use today! Sounds like the Red Chair and the Schoolhouse have a few things in common besides their color!
