Did you miss me?

March 31, 2008 at 3:45 pm (domestic life, food, fun, wine) (, , , , )

I wasn’t gone for long, but it was a very good vacation. We did a lot of things that were really good for us: we hiked , we biked, we relaxed , we read, we ate well, and we slept.

We went to Costanoa . It is what I call a luxury campground. There are everything from lodge rooms to cabins to tent bungalows and camp sites. There is a spa, a hot tub, saunas, and a restaurant on the grounds. It is about an hour from home and feels like a different world. Home is urban/suburban. Costanoa is country. There are hiking trails, beaches, and mountain bike trails. And a low key atmosphere.

Highlights:

*Durante’s restaurant in Pescadero,CA . perfectly cooked sunny sides eggs, excellent apricot pie, and soup to die for – green chile cheese and artichoke were the two we tried

* Mountain biking -I figured out about half way through the ride that it had been ten years since I had read on a real trail. Ow. Plus, I watched a snake escape from under DH’s rear tire. go,snake, go. No really, it was fun.

* hot tub

* Jack. A baby/toddler we met that really loved DH’s guitar. Oh yeah, his parents were really nice people to.

* The odd creepiness of the Bonnie Doon winery. We arrived to late to do any tasting, but that’s ok. We suspected the people that worked there might have been zombies.

* Realizing that the beach rocks were full of fossils.

* Sleeeeeeeep.

* Spending a rainy Sat evening in our room reading,drinking wine, and eating cheese. ( no tv , but yes there was wireless)

*Hearing Garrick Davis at the San Gregorio General Store . He is a happy man that can play guitar.

*Spending four day just us.
