Moment Of Truth.....
We raored down Highway 80 alongside The Truckee River . My preference would have been Highway 50. This spectacular stretch of steep blacktop passes through one of the most beautiful places in the US , the spectacular Lake Tahoe. South Lake Tahoe is divided by the California - Nevada border .Main Street is the border and the Casinos populate the Norh side of town and the related Casino Hotels.,the South side is where most of the hotels and motels reside .
Ms K was in touch with me all the way back to the Bay area and I was still a nervous wreck . The conversation got much easier as we drove. I snapped lots of photos with my phone as we drove through the mountains and sent them on to Ms K as we went. Our conversation got easier and much more comfortable as we went . She was familiar with most of Northern California so we had lots to talk about. We soon realized that we had been talking like a pair of old friends , as if we had known each other for years . She made fun of my Irish accent and I exaggerated every word and phrase just to poke fun at her . As a Speech Therapist she was fascinated by my accent and we both laughed for hours on that long drive back to the Bay Area....it was a lot of fun.
Crossing the Bay Bridge brought brought a spectacular view of San Francisco which I shared with Ms K. The new Bay Bridge is indeed a spectacular sight offering panoramic views from the hills of Berkeley to the flatlands of Silicon Valley, the Golden Gate Bridge glowing Orange in the setting Sun.
"So what time do you want to meet tomorrow ??"
My knees quivered a little when Ms K uttered those words .
'YOU MEAN TOMORROW AS IN....Tomorrow !!!! ?"
"Atomic Blonde....I'm picking you up at 2:30.......Sushi or Hamburger ?? "
Sushi it is .
Holy SHit ......I have a date !!!!
