on the road
tomorrow afternoon the bf and i are skippin town and heading north. our first stop will be atascadero to visit his cousin, wife and two adorable little girls. thursday am back on the road and up to one of my favorite california spots, BIG SUR. last year we camped then then stayed a night at the Glen Oaks Motel. we noticed cool cabins for rent across Hwy 1 from Glen Oaks- Ripplewood Resort, where we'll be staying this year.
we've been craving some "cabin time" and this should hit the spot. no tv. no phone. just the big sur river at our back door, fire pit outside, fireplace inside, kitchen to do a little cooking and nature all around. friday night we have dinner reservations for the big sur bakery which specializes in seasonal, local fare. i can not WAIT to try. i've been there for a road snack in the day but i hear dinner is where it's at.
i think a stop at cafe kevah will be a must for some brunch the view. even if it's overcast, i'll be a happy camper.
