For one last bit of steeze we hiked up to Valencia Peak Saturday morning. Epic views and a bit of elevation gain led to an amazing hike.
Met a really cool couple on the trail ( who took this pic of us at the top) They were in their 60s and training to hike into the Grand Canyon with their grand Daughter. The husband hikes every Saturday morning before sunrise, lets talk about goals!
After our hike, we went in to Morro Bay for coffee and an Acai bowl!
What an amazing few days on the Central Coast… filled with hikes and brews I really couldn’t ask for anything more!
This last weekend was one for the books. I had a great time outside with friends, drinking beer, hiking, smelling the ocean air and enjoying life!
It all started on Friday night with an amazing NEW meatball recipe that was so easy peezy and delicious, some wonderful fresh mojitos, chocolate fondue, early birthday celebration and girl time.
Saturday, we drove to San Luis Obispo for the California Festival of Beers! We tried amazing new beers and old favorites! For dinner, we went to Firestone – tri tip sandwich heaven!
Sunday, Chelsea took us to her new favorite coffee spot in SLO, Scout! The story behind this cute and delish coffee shop is as adorable as the family who owns it! I wish I still lived in SLO so I could hang out at this lil gem all the time.
To truly get our SLO Cal fix we stopped at Montana De Oro. This stretch of coastline is so ruggedly Californian and its one of my favorite places to be.
To cap the long weekend off right we had one last adventure on Monday back in the Bay Area! We got up early and headed out to Bolinas for a hike at Alamere Falls! I have had a few friends recommend this hike so I thought it was time to try it! There is lots of poison oak on this trail – so make sure to know what it looks like before you head out! Also, I suggest wearing shoes with good tread as some parts getting to and from the beach can be very slippery.
Last stop, one of my all time favorites, The Salsalito Taco Shop! Pictured above was a yummy Watermelon Marg!
It was a great weekend filled with fun times and friends.
I am very thankful to all of the Men and Women who have sacrificed so much so that we can enjoy the freedoms we do. Thank you!
