Egads, the Pacific Coast Highway is Beautiful!

After a rainy day of driving yesterday that ended up with me car sick (the PCH is really curvy!), I decided to drive today.

Excellent decision as I am doing great and Jon has only a few more gray hairs (he doesn't always approve of my lane location I list to the right and have almost taken out an orange cone, rocks and a dump truck).

We got hungry along the way and wanted to finish the chili we cooked up a couple of days ago (note: regular chili recipes make a LARGE quantity and feed us for many, many days). As no designated picnic areas presented themselves, we decided to make due with what was available.

We are now sitting in Cafe 316 in Monterey, CA, enjoying wi-fi, classical music, delicious drinks and beautiful weather. San Fran next, I think?


  1. Rusted Root + PCH = Awesome!

    Ellen, I am a right lister as well...

    Where are you staying in San Fran?


    ps- you guys be careful on the PCH... ok?!

  2. Glad you like the RR. We were listening to a mix CD given to us by some friends at our going away party. Good tunes!

    We ended up getting a cheap hotel here in SF. Only $50 a night and right on Market St.

    We forgot that Wit et el. lived here! Next time. The hotel is really cute and we haven't splurged since Vegas, so all is well.

    Thanks for the offer to hook us up! You are the best sister evah!!

  3. NIce Music to accompany the drive!!! :)
    we are MN on april 15-18th if you get that way by next week heehee...but if you need showers, I'm sure my parents will lend ya some quality H2O!!!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
