Spa Girls’

Spa Girls’ - Mt. Shasta Resort
and Magic Tricks
(1- 10 - 2012 t
o 1-12 - 2012)

Patty had found us a great “ Girls’ Getaway” couple of days. Although it wasn’t snowing, it was still a fun time, only costing $111 each a day - to include: spa treatment (nails or massage or facial), dinner and a quad chalet.

Jan. 10th
Patty picked us up and drove, the hour to the Mt. Shasta. We picked up groceries and checked in. We settled in our cabin and then headed out for our first day of spa treatments, including champagne, all part of the package deal. We did tip well. Patty and I had pedicures and manicures, Mary and Viv had massages.

Afterwards, we went to the restaurant/lounge for dinner; restaurant closed. When we arrived, waitress greeted us, “Are you the spa girls?” and brought in the restaurant menu. We all ordered steaks (free entree so we went for the pricey!) Guitarist entertained us. I also entertained by performing a magic act – I made my napkin disappear! (it was really a funny accident...and joke on me). Back to the cabin (chalet) for wine and conversation.

Jan. 11th
Patty and I slept in ‘til 9 – when Viv told us it was time to get up. When dressing Patty made some magic of her own making a pair of socks (which did not belong to any of us) appear under the bed, then she made a container of fudge brownies appear under the other bed! Hmm, good housekeeping.

Mary and Viv were rearing to get going and led us in yoga posses. Mary was very impressive with some fancy tricks. After a breakfast of foods we brought, (since there was very little snow) we walked the trail, across Wagon Creek Pedestrian bridge. Gorgeous day, though cold. Viv and I were busy taking photos and we all began to take the wrong trail home. We should pay better attention.

Got back and had a nice fire in the fireplace, (electric and it would turn off every half hour). We snacked on foods we had brought and played scrabble. Patty kept everyone in usual. Later, that afternoon,Patty and I had massages, Viv had a facial, while Mary
had a mani/pedi. By then, it was time for dinner. This time we picked something a little less filling than the night before.

Jan. 12
Viv’s turn to do her trick, while everyone was still asleep. She was up early and wanted to get the internet to work for her I-phone. The adapter was hanging out of the plug. She tried to adjust it, but, ooh, sparks appeared!! She called the front desk and they sent down the maintenance man. So very strange to hear a man’s voice in our chalet thought Patty, while I slept through the whole thing, thanks to earplugs.

We packed up and off we went to Mt. Shasta town. We shopped at Pompador’s a cute little shop with lots of stuff for Grandma wanna-be’s who love to spend money! Such fun. We also stopped in 5th Season. Then, off to meet some relatives of Mary’s for lunch at Lily's restaurant in town. Afterwards, we headed home! Great time, wonderful photos and fun stories to tell.
