I have a longstanding agreement with patgreene and the kids that I'll be home the night before and night after a business trip, so that meant being home last night. Although it was also the 5-year anniversary for myself and cyan_blue. We solved this conflict by my taking Geri out Thursday night to Vaso Azzuro and staying over at a long-time favorite, the San Benito House in Half Moon Bay. Home of some of the best bread I've ever eaten, and the place where Pat and I spent our first evening together in California (in 1984). It has dumped the 80s B&B pastels and Laura Ashley, in favor of a more-retro-restoration early 1900s look... sharp contrasts, dark exposed wood, white walls.
Geri and I then spent yesterday roaming up and down the coast, taking my weekend in advance... stopping by the ghost town of Purissima, picnic lunch on a deserted beach (thanks to CA state parks closures... we hiked in from Rt 1), geocaching, walking among tidal pools at Seal Cove. Then a dinner together with Pat, and an early night.
