It was a crazy and successful trip. I'm spent!
Friday was a bit calmer--the photo above is the view from my hotel room in Marina Del Rey (however, we only saw the ocean from the plane). We basically spent the entire time there in a 3 mile radius around our hotel. Deb and I had a meeting in the morning, then we had lunch with a colleague and then had some downtime before going to the venue for a rehearsal in mid afternoon. I may have had a few cocktails Friday night.
It's a palm tree!
As I mentioned, we were up early to get the flight, and we saw this:
It's been pouring in Eugene, so it was lovely to have a bit of cool and sunny weather. I met some amazing people, reunited with some terrific alums, and bonded with the cohort. Well worth it.
