Birthday Weekend. 12/8-10/17

I had a great time on my birthday weekend. Our destination was Little River, CA on the Pacific Coast. Since we were a party of four it was important that everyone have the choices they liked for their dining experiences. That is hard to do because no one wanted to eat the way I do. So I compromised. Here are some high and low lights.

On the way up we stopped at burger and fries place. I ordered a falafel burger which unfortunately came with a ton of feta cheese on it. I scraped that off and ate the burger sans the bun lid with a knife and fork.

When we got to our room, look at who was greeting us on the deck!

Later we went out for a fancy dinner at the hotel. I ordered pasta. It was not good. Way overcooked.

The next day we headed out for some wine tasting. We stopped at a pizza place that had a real pizza oven. It was some of the best pizza I have eaten on the West Coast.

The second night we just ate snacks at the bar which was fun. On Sunday we drove the coast road for a long way. It was slow going but beautiful. The rocky northern California Coast is pretty isolated which keeps the number of people visiting way down.

What a wonderful birthday weekend I had!!
