Berkeley Hills Spa off of Highway 13 – massage giveaway

I have decided to re-blog this entry because soon we will be giving away a FREE massage at this spa. If you’re like me you will love this place. I did and was amazed by it and wish I had more time to relax when I had this massage. Be sure to show up an hour or so prior to your massage experience.

I will be letting you know when we have things in place for the giveaway.

For over 20 years I have practiced massage myself and can tell you that I can be picky about the bodywork I receive. Everyone here was wonderful and the massage experience I had was delightful.

Keep tuned in…

All About Travel

Nestled up to the Berkeley Hills is an oasis off of highway 13, The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa. Scenic views of the San Francisco Bay are wondrous.

Checked off – Cherry blossoms

Worries and Wisdom

Last week after work, Noah and I took the metro downtown to see the Cherry Blossoms by the Tidal Basin. While the National Cherry Blossom Festival wasn’t starting for another two days, I still considered this goal checked off since all I cared about was seeing the trees anyway. I grew up in Maryland and while I’m pretty sure I saw the trees sometime during my years there, I can’t recall that I did. And I haven’t been to see them since we moved back to the area almost four years ago, so I was due for a visit. I am so happy we went when we did.
