We left about 7:10 a.m. and arrived in Santa Cruz at 1:05 p.m.. We stopped on the top of the Grapevine(Gorman) for breakfast. Seems like an egg McMuffin tastes pretty good on the first day of a trip.
Stopped for a pit stop on Hiway 5 and then cruised into NoCal. We cut over through the mountain pass in to the odiferous Gilroy where they are harvesting their famous garlic. We stopped in a little farm town and filled with gas…$3.61. The Honda got 32.0 mpg which is not bad.
We were starving when we arrived and has some great Thai food right on the beach. We unpacked and took a short nap and about 7 p.m. tonight we are heading to a famous local Italian restaurant called Lillian’s. Let you know soon how it was.
Oh yes! That was one of the best American-Italian meals we ever ate. Sunday gravy, meatballs over hand made pasta. Now to bed.
