Leaving San Deigo, driving north

After leaving San Diego, I plugged in the address for the lunch date with Joy and Co.  It said Covina, but Joy's message had said the place was in Pasadena.  I tried the address for Pasadena, but none was found, so I looked at the GPS map and decided the Covina one was in the right general area, so that must be the place.  I pressed ''Enter" to set the location and texted Joy saying I was on my way.  It was about 100 miles so I was in good shape timewise, thought I might even get there early the way I drive. ;-)  Anyways, I finally decided to text her again to confirm that Covina was the right location, but didn't hear anything back right away, so kept on my path up I-5 North to CA-57 towards Pomona.

I will miss the ocean
  About a minute before I got there, I saw a B of A so I stopped to get some cash.  In the parking lot, Joy called and said, nope, wrong place!!  So she gave me verbal directions and I memorized them as much as possible since I was going to have to do this on my own now.  Fortunately, it was about 15 minutes early still, so I could probably still make it on time.  At least I could have if I could find my way back on the freeway!  Geez.  Finally, I did and was headed back west to Pasadena...Joy texted me precise directions and I found the restaurant about 1:15pm.  I wandered around, but didn't see anyone, so I sent her a text and sure enough, they were already sitting down inside.  Soooo, I finally got to meet Joy (pvtjoy), Rob (what IS his TB name?) and Angelica (latinababe)!!  Alice (alicegourmet) and Tracy (TRE69) weren't there yet, so I wasn't TOO late. :-)

We had a great visit and delicious lunch at Green Street and I was sorry it was so short.  Everyone was awesome--so friendly, fun, and welcoming!  We shared some travel stories and heard some other good stories and then it was time to go already.  Back on the road for me and back home for the rest.  I will have to go back when I have more time because they were all great!! See you guys again very soon hopefully!
