My dad and Kim were here for the weekend...
...which of course meant we had to make a stop at our favorite nursery shop in Ben Lomond.
Dad and Kim brought their usual goodies - fresh baked bread and avocados from their tree. Those avocados made some great guac!
Dad (of course) needed a project. So he hung the cast iron skillets they brought for me over my little stove
We headed up to Davenport for dinner at the Roadhouse
I had the New England clam chowder and a glass of Quinta Cruz Tempranillo
We woke up early Sunday for breakfast and took a hike through Fall Creek in Felton... I realized AFTER we got there that I had forgotten the memory card for my camera, so all I have are pics snapped with my iphone.
We went to lunch at The Farm, a little place in Aptos my friend Olive introduced me to that is rapidly becoming my favorite lunch spot. I had the club...
...and Rudy spent the whole time wishing he had the club, too
That's his begg-y face.
Next stop was Soquel for some treasure hunting through their many antique shops...
...then back up to Davenport to the sea glass beach - the tide was low so sea glassers were aplenty digging for their frosty glass treasures
We went back to my cottage to cook dinner - a rainbow quinoa and black bean salad with marinated skirt steak over a bed of lettuce, fresh-picked from Kim's garden - so delicious!
Thank you for a wonderful weekend... come back soon! :)
