In July, Charlie and I decided to take a week off and go on one last road trip up North before the baby arrives. This time we decided to go to Yosemite, since I’ve never been there before. I always wanted to see the gigantic Sequoia trees and the waterfalls. So that was our first stop. It was beautiful there, and we’ll definitely take a trip back there when the baby is bigger, and by then I’ll actually be able to hike again. Amazing how much huffing and puffing it is when you’re tummy is so huge and you’re carrying it around up trails.
The next day we left Yosemite and drove over to Cupertino where the Apple Mothership was. I know, it’s a little nerdy, but I definitely wanted to check out the apple campus. We basically just went there and checked out the building and I was wishing I could work there…it was nice At the store I bought a “Hello, I’m a Mac” shirt and I bought a little one for the baby too. The first shirt I bought him….good choice I thought….sorry Charlie, baby will be a mac baby
Afterwards we drove up to San Francisco, and had our clam chowder and fried shrimp at the wharf. It’s amazing how it was the middle of summer and it was still freezing in San Francisco. The next day we spent the morning walking around Union Square and buying cupcakes at Cako Bakery.
We saved the cupcakes for later when we went to Monterey. We got there in time for lunch on the pier, and afterwards we had a cupcake buffet with ice cream….it was delish. It was beautiful in Monterey and Carmel. The next day we took a nice little drive through Pebble Beach and ended the drive in Carmel for lunch.
Next stop after Carmel was San Luis Obispo. This time we actually didn’t stay at the Apple Farm, which is usually our Norm. We ended up staying at the Avila Village Inn. It was about 10 minutes from San Luis Obispo. It’s very peaceful and relaxing there and a nice place to stay for our last night on our roadtrip. That thursday night we went to go check out the San Luis Obispo Farmers Market. It was lots of fun. I love Farmer’s markets, and of course we just ate more that night. The BBQ pulled pork sandwich we had was yummers!
Sadly our trip came to an end. The next day we made our way down back to San Diego. It was really a great trip. We always have fun on the road and visiting all our favorites places up North and eating it up all the way! The next trip we take will be so different, we’ll have another little traveler with us and it’ll be fun to experience a trip with the little guy.
