the trip bucket list check off, trip prep,horns hosed, springs here

ok so today we start the check off list for my bucket list
my wife she and i will travel first to san francisco to see
the wedding journey couple my son he and his financee she
we will spend two days there then
will rent a car for our travel down hwy one to santa barbara

we have two definite places to see in sf
a market we saw on rfd tvs california country
(we watch that show every week)
the market sells a lot of local produce and milks and cheeses
and meats
usually they are all organic
they also have a restaurant/delicatessant there we want
to eat at

the other place is a garden that was planted in front of city hall
they dug up the grass and planted circular beds
we saw it on the pbs show victory garden

on monday we will drive on hwy one to john stienbecks museum
in salinas and then to monterey to see the aquarium
then we will travel through big sur to hearst castle then on
to santa barbara

there we will visit my wet suitcase sisterinlaw she, my raintank
nephew he, and my motherinlaw she
we that is my wife she has a wedding journey event to go to

will blog as we go

its nice to be retired
can get everything ready and packed the day before instead
of waiting to the last minute and forgetting something
like my shoes

have got my animals all prepped for a 10 day trip
they are all on automatic feeders and waterers with backups for
both in case of failure

will do my motion sickness prep
this combo per different recommendations
will wear the motion sickness bracelet, the patch behind the ear,
take a large martini with two olives with ginger ale on the side, and
then take a meclizine (antinausea pill) preflight
think its all covered

now if i just had flight anxiety i could just take xanax and be
done with all this

will awake in california

ok put a stop watch to the out of bounds play at the end
the ref called a 3.5 sec call to give the ball to arizona
they need a clock like the shot clock that goes off to prevent
things like this
horns should be playing duke this week

well its here now
time have been waiting for
yes here we go

  1. While in Monterey, I would also recommend taking the 17 Mile drive. Very pretty..

    Cambria is a neat little town to see near Hearst Castle.

    If you have time there are also a bunch of wineries in the area.

    A couple of good restaurants in the area are the Hitchin Post in Casmalia or Buelton and Jockos in Nipono. Great steaks..

    This trips covers some beautiful country... Enjoy...

  2. Hope you all have a great time! Such a beautiful area of the country! I wonder how the farmer's market in CA will differ from the TX ones. And hooray for spring! It's my absolute favorite time of the year. Hate to be indoors most days!

  3. Hope y'all have a great trip. Love spring everything about it! My husband and I need one before we get too old:)
