Hey guys! I hope everyone had a great Friday!
Woo hoo, welcome to the weekend!
California Friday #2: Toasty Tootsies!
After our (literally) blistering 10 mile jaunt through the forests of Nisene Marks, we devoured some lunch and then set out for some pampering for our tired toes!
We went in and arranged for the
…a 30 minute back and foot massage…
Now I have to admit, when I first saw the open arrangement of all the “sofas”, I was a little skeptical…
As I sat in the room awaiting instruction, surrounded by people getting pounded on like they were chicken tenders for that night’s dinner, I was a little skeptical…
When, finally, a small Asian man came up to me, rubbed my shoulders and then pulled (I mean, really pulled) both my arms straight above my head, I was a little skeptical…
But then, about halfway through our massage session/dinner prep, as I looked over at Emilia through perfectly relaxed and heavy eyelids, all the skepticism rolled off my shoulders, down the candy cane-esque sofa, and far, far away from my mind!
Afterwards, we headed down to Capitola beach for some fun in the sun!
Yeah, the Pacific Ocean? It’s COLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLD!
Nasty little birds tried to steal my towel! Haha!
As we headed back to the car to end our relaxing day at home, I couldn’t help but snap a few more shots of downtown Capitola. None of which ended up looking like much…
that is, except for this one:
The angle, the lines, the sunlight coming through the door…almost makes me feel like a real photographer! 😉
Where have your “tootsies” been this summer? Any dips in new waters?
Have you ever had a professional massage? What did you think?
My first massage was horrible. The lady basically spent 60 minutes rubbing her palms over my skin…there was no “massaging” whatsoever! It took me a while to give it another go, but now I love indulging in a good spa day once every few months!
