On Sunday afternoon, Rich wasn't feeling well. I decided to leave him in the room to rest and ventured out on my own around Carmel, the cutest little town there ever, ever was. The most colorful of all the stores (they wouldn't let me photograph it, sorry!) was Lush. You'd never know it from their website but it really is a cute store.
They serve up what they call "Bath Cocktails"...all bath products designed for single-use. A bath bomb here, a lotion bar here, a bubble bar there...and $15 later you have what they promise to be an unforgettable bath experience.
I carry my parcel back to the hotel, fill the jet bath with water and climb in. I add my bath cocktail ingredients, one at a time, turn on the jets and within seconds...
this is what happened!
That's me STANDING UP (I'm 5'9") in the bathtub! Talk about a Lucy and Ethel moment! All I could do was laugh and laugh and laugh. The jets don't turn off until you unplug the tub so I had to hold my breath and go under.
I told the front desk what happened, just in case the bubble experience had any result other than a squeaky clean Amy and a squeaky clean bathroom. Rich didn't think I should share this photograph on the blog...but tell me, how I could I tell this story without a picture to prove it???
Oh, I did ask the people at Lush if I could use the products in a jet bath. "Oh sure!" was the answer. I think I need to show them this picture.
I'm happily back home, still squeaking from cleanliness. I have a million and one things to do but I am so happy. So happy. What a wonderful trip away that was! It was heaven. And I didn't even know how badly I needed it.
