Rob and I dashed down to San Luis Obispo to spend the weekend with my parents. We hit the road after a stop at to the climbing gym and picked up Margaret along the way. I drove all the way home, quick and uneventful.
On Saturday morning, we did the regular morning routine: a stop at farmer's market, a visit to the park and breakfast at their favorite diner. This photo is outside the market, with my mom clutching cash - she takes her veggies seriously!
In the afternoon, Rob and I took the tandem bike out for a 30 mile ride. We went to Avila Beach and then back over to Cuesta College. It was a great ride, full of ocean, hills and cows. We get to go so much faster in the country!
We picked up Margaret for dinner at the house - pork loin with mushrooms and new potatoes, yum! - and then all went together to Santa Maria to see at show at our favorite theater. PCPA is an amazing hidden gem if you ever have the fortune to be in the area for one of their shows. Even this tricky bollywood/cirque du soleil version of A Midsummer Night's Dream turned out well.
The next morning, we were spoiled with fresh waffles for breakfast. Mom and I went to church. It was nice to see all the old familiar faces and to debut my new last name. Back at home, we all voiciferously researched a trip to British Columbia coming up in June.
At 3:30, we picked up Margaret and drove back to the city. There was snow in the hills along Salinas, very unusual. Along the way, we listened to the lastest YouTube video from the president. Strange times all around.
